FFA chairman Lowy backs North Queensland Fury to remain
The Fury have been battling financial problems for the past few months and have been forced to come up with $2.5million in sponsorship funds by the end of today to stay alive as a club.
Lowy said he expected the Fury to remain in the A-League for next season but urged the people of North Queensland to help out where they can.
“We have to get a submission from Fury today and I expect the submission to be favourable to make the decision to keep Townsville in the A-League," Lowy said.
"But we need everybody's participation there and I have indications that the participation is coming and if need be the FFA has to help them stay there, so be it.
"I'm expecting Fury to be part of the A-League next year.
“I think it's very important to keep football in North Queensland and not just abandon it, either by FFA or by the people of North Queensland, for a few dollars," he added.
