FFV's New National Premier League Victoria Faces Opposition From Football Clubs
Published August 7, 2013
Victorian football's governing body "is on a collision course with some of the state's most famous clubs over plans to streamline the state system and create a new elite competition," according to Michael Lynch of THE AGE. The enmity between the parties over the introduction of the National Premier League Victoria "has reached fever pitch in recent weeks, and the clubs have issued an ultimatum to the governing body: back down by 4pm on Wednesday, or face a court challenge." Football Federation Victoria "is seeking to implement a strategic sea change of the game in line with Football Federation Australia directives to introduce a new top tier competition at state level around the country." But while the transition has run smoothly in other places, "it has hit turbulence in Victoria" (THE AGE, 8/7).
