A Canberramarker based consortium led by TransACT CEO Ivan Slavich is determined to apply for and receive a license to compete in the A-League, commencing in the 2010-11 season. However Canberramarker failed to get the 12th licence they had applied for as a Western Sydney bid (Sydney Rovers FC) were given the licence instead. Canberramarker will now compete for the 13th licence. The first formal step in this process is to present an application to the A-League License Review Committee in August 2008. Canberramarker is one of ten bids expected by Football Federation Australia for up to four available licenses, but is strongly positioned to succeed and has support from the highest levels within Football Federation Australia. If Canberramarker is unsuccessful in this round of license applications, it is unlikely there will be another opportunity for ten years or more.

Socceroos vs Kuwait- Canberra Stadium

On Thursday, 5th March, 2009, Canberra Stadiummarker hosted an Asian Cup Qualifier game between the Socceroos and Kuwaitmarker. FFA officials said that, if Canberramarker attract over 20,000 to this game then they will be the likely destination for the twelfth A-League licence.

Despite the poor Socceroos performance, the trial in Canberra was a success, with 20,032 fans attending the match. In September 2009, however, an extremely poor crowd to an A-League game at Canberra Stadium was recorded and doubts surfaced about the viability of the bid. As of yet no final decision has been made on whether the bid will be successful.
