English Premier League support is pretty mature in Australia. And holding some minor games here - let's face it they would be - wouldn't be that much of an issue (except for UK based fans - ask AFL fans whose teams have been forced to Sydney, Brisbane and now Gold Coast). Frank Lowey stepped into line with the Asian Conference, that is our caucus and we did what we had to to support our rep.
No, the danger to the A_league is the financial growth of the American MLS. Amercia has a huge opportunity and potential supporter base, but not enough quality players for the number of teams. Their scouts are already reported to be looking at the highly regarded A-League and the Beckham show has introduced others. The Gold Coast Galaxy is already talking about stronger and perhaps feeder links.
