I'm delighted that Soccer Australia members have chosen to go down the path of reform and have voted in the interim board, chaired by Frank Lowy as proposed by the Crawford Review.

Reform should deliver stronger public support and greater sponsorship opportunities for the game, and encourage the development of soccer at all levels.

I have no doubt that Australian soccer can become a major force in the World Game.

I'd like to congratulate David Crawford and his team, supported by the Australian Sports Commission, for the excellent work they have done to provide a blueprint for change in Soccer in Australia.

The Australian Sports Commission will continue to provide support to the interim board to assist its implementation of the much needed reform.
