Tasmania United today issued the following media release:
"The Tasmania United Football Club taskforce gratefully acknowledge the ongoing funding from the Tasmanian government.
"Today’s announcement of $80,000 funding for the completion of the business case, as required by the FFA/A-League, will do much to help achieve our goal. Thanks to the continuing generosity of the state government the reality of Tasmanian A-League participation is an important step closer."
The State Government has now contributed $120,000 towards the bid and it is hoped the business case will be completed within the next six months, and that a formal presentation be made to the FFA by the end of the year.
