Possible second team for Melbourne
The Football Federation of Australia(FFA) announced that the Peter Sidwell led consortium had been granted exclusive negotiation status for a second team based in Melbourne for entry into the A-League in the 2010/11 season.
If the negotiation goes well then there is going to be a second A-League team in Melbourne to join Melbourne Victory.
Next season the A-League will be composed of ten teams after the two Queensland teams join the league and so the second Melbourne team will be the eleventh.
This means that there is likely to be a twelfth team possibly from Sydney or Canberra.
That will make the A-League more interesting tipping wise and the season will be longer too.
