Following the recent change in ownership sale of Adelaide United FC, the APFCA membership met to consider the role of Chairman, a post currently held by former Adelaide Chairman, Greg Griffin. The entire APFCA membership voted unanimously that Greg should continue in his role for the duration of his elected term, through to the end of November 2018.

Greg Griffin, Chairman of AFPCA, said:

“I’m humbled by the support from my peers and am delighted to continue as APFCA Chairman and FFA Congress Member until my term ends in November. As I said in an email to my fellow members, I look forward to working with the football family towards an independent and flourishing A-League, sooner rather than later.”

Simon Pearce, APFCA Board Member, said:

“Greg’s new independent status adds even more credibility to his role in support of the reform agenda that APFCA is pursuing. Our unanimous decision is borne out of the passion and commitment that Greg has bought to the role.  Continued access to his knowledge and experience, despite the change in his Club status, will be of great benefit to the entire game.”
