'We're going to keep 2 mil for the hub [no idea of the cost but probably fair enough], 2 mil for national team funding [despite it being unlikely we will be playing international football anytime soon] and 5.75 mil [because fudge you].'

hmmm....  Not sure if the clubs/players would wear that.  Find it hard to believe that the story is credible.

Really shark for the players who've been stood down and without pay altogether to be told to come back at 20% pay. More like 10% once it's all said and done.

Also, Dome was saying on the pod that they'll struggle to meet the next payroll without the Fox money so the Phoenix might be in strife too.

Plan needed by 31 March

Almost half of the contracted players in the competition are due to become free agents after May 31, leaving them without a job but also able to move to other clubs in Australia or overseas.

If the season doesn't finish. Will FFA have to return the $12million payment to fox? Or part of that, meaning the clubs get nothing.

That's a big incentive to make it happen.

Not really surprising nothing has been sorted yet, I mean they only suspended the league in March no hurry is there. 

You would have thought given they knew when the contracts expired this would have been top of their list to get sorted. Wont be a surprise if they come out and blame players and clubs.

That's just over a month. Lots of games for some teams. Squad depth will be a big factor in who eventually wins it. As there are bound to be injuries after the layoff. And not much time for recovery.

Yeh I'm sure all Fox will have to do is check their diaries to make sure there are no clashes with NRL etc, and all will be sweet!

Oi Oi Edgecumbe... lets have a clean sheet

A-League new boys Macarthur FC may want assurances from FFA before committing to paying fee. The financial fallout from the coronavirus epidemic is set to continue, with question marks hanging over the $3.5 million that A-League entrants Macarthur FC are due to pay FFA next month

In the article it says that they understand that the Club's Participation Agreements every club has signed says that the FFA only has to give them a minimum of 1.2mil a season. I've never seen that mentioned anywhere before.
