Phoenix to seek clarity from FFA

The Phoenix received notification from Football Federation Australia on Monday night that a 10 year licence extension will not be granted

The Club will be seeking greater clarity around the reasons for rejection of the proposal and how the FFA is evaluating the Phoenix’s contribution to game development, player pathway, commercial factors, broadcast rights and the long-term success of the Hyundai A-League, to which the

Phoenix is already making a material and positive contribution. 

The Club’s Welnix ownership group and Board will meet to consider the license extension option in the existing Club Participation Agreement and will continue to negotiate in good faith with the FFA.
