The ateam4canberra bid committee has offered 5000 people a chance to show their support and become foundation members for $200 each. This sort of financial commitment from the fans for an A-League team bid for Canberra would definitely send a strong message to the FFA.
A foundation members trust account has been set up with Service One Members Banking a and membership will be taken at all branches starting 17 July 2008. The membership monies will be held in trust pending the successful bid process.
The Canberra Times will be taking a photo of all foundation members who sign up at Service One Members Banking (Bailey’s Corner, Canberra City) on Thursday 17 July @ 9am. [ED – wot? Other media not invited?]
It’s time for supporters of the world game to put their money where their mouth is!!!
