#3 – Far North Queensland
Pros: A vast and expansive region that would attract fans and crowds from Cairns to Townsville, numbers at grassroots level, want a NYL and W-League team, QLD NPL connection with Northern Fury and Heat
Cons: Ghosts of their past, financial backing, only averaged 5,396 crowds last time and lows of just over 1,000
Verdict: If Far North Queensland is to happen again, it needs to be done properly from the grassroots level up. W-League and NYL a priority and ultimately, the A-League, which is the word coming out of the Northern Fury camp.
