The Greater Western Sydney bid is still in the running for the 12th A-League licence. Despite media stories circulating in the Harbour City today that FFA is almost certain to announce the Ian Rowden led bid as the 12th Team of the A-League, the Greater Western Sydney Football bid is still very much in the running.
The rival bid spokesman Richie Williams told tribalfootball this afternoon: "Our bid is alive and well and gaining momentum every day.
"We have significant support from a number of stakeholders including stadium, state wide Clubs and other community sections of the football family of New South Wales.
"At this stage we are in constant discussions with FFA and in fact we are meeting with senior FFA executives this afternoon to update them on our progress.
"I do not believe FFA would be stringing us along if they had in fact committed to awarding the 12th license to another bidder."
