RATINGS RISE: REUTERS' Ian Ransom wrote while the A-League, which also features one team from New Zealand, saw crowds, memberships and broadcast ratings rise in its most successful season last year, "it is still in a precarious position in its home market, where Australian Rules football and rugby league dominate." De Bohun said that "the A-League would not look to expand the number of teams over the life of its current four-year broadcasting agreement, but would consider bringing in Asian-based clubs when it found itself on a firmer footing." De Bohun: "We're part of Asia. I think Australia's starting to understand that in a footballing context. We have a global game, a game that doesn't just have to be played in Australia" (REUTERS, 10/8).
