NQ Fury Supporters Petiton

www.visit-queensland.com.au is happy to assist the supporters of the North Queensland Fury in their efforts to pursuade the Townsville City Council to go ahead with financial support for the embattled Football club.

There is soon to be  a proposal put forward to the TCC for financial assistance to the A-League franchise.

The purpose of this web page is to form a pettition that can be handed to TCC in support of this proposal. Some Townsville residents have submitted negative comments about the cost of such financial support to both councillors and the local newspaper.

NQFC supporters are urged to lend their supoprt in favour of the council's financial assistance by adding feedback comments to the bottom of this article. The list of feedback will then be delivered to council for inclusion in their deliberations about the proposal.

Supporters can add their own comments to the link below or can copy and paste the text below, the important thing is to only submit feedback ONCE using a legitimate email address, the system will ignore comments that are submitted more than once by the same email address.

Townsville ratepayers are encouraged to include this fact in the feedback comments.

Option One: As a supporter of the North Queensland Fury and a Townsville resident, i am in favour of Townsville City Council providing financial assistance to the Fury and encourage them to do so.

Option Two: As an Australian Football supporter and a Travelling Fan, i am in favour of the Townsville City Council providing financial assistance to the Fury and encourage them to do so.

Comment: As a supporter of the North Queensland Fury and long time Townsville resident and rate payer, I urge the Townsville City Council to provide financial assistance to the Fury. This has been done for the Cowboys and Crocs in their hour of need. Townsville will clearly continue to benefit from our own team in the A League and one day the Asian Champions League. I support the Fury and I vote.

Comment: As a traveler through your beautiful Queensland and fan of your local Club I'll choose option 2 - and will add the suggestion, that your Townsville City Council should moove it's ass fast to support a qualified club as attraction for visitors like me and for sure at first place for the local Fans.

Comment: As a Football and Fury Supporter I am totally in Favour of the councils support.They have supported other Townsville/NQ Teams with financial help, why should this be any different.Football and Rugby league generally play in different seasons and the Fury's supporters spend money in the community as well as being televised around the world that Townsville is a place to holiday.They had a pretty successful year, much better than the cowboys did in their first year.There is a community spirit as well as a love of football at each game and I believe that will only grow from strength to strength.

Comment: As a supporter of the North Queensland Fury and a Townsville resident, i am in favour of Townsville City Council providing financial assistance to the Fury and encourage them to do so. Also as a teacher of primary school children, I have seen the joy and excitement the Fury has brought to the younger fans - some of whom didn't even play the support but loved the excitement and atmosphere at games. As a ex-financial person, I know that you sometimes have to spend money for long term gain - from worldwide exposure and travelling fans and hopefully a future world cup.

Comment: Robbie Fowler was interviewed on BBC rado 5 live yesterday morning our time on one of their nightly football discussion shows... Amongst other things they were asking him about hs experience at NQ Furry and he was quite complimentary about his time there,he reckoned that the A league was pretty good and he enjoyed living in Townsville.They asked him if he was going back next year and he told them he was waiting to see if the club survived its ongoing financial problems.He said from what he'd been told things were just about sorted for next season!! GO LIVERPOOL!

Comment: As an Australian Football supporter and a Travelling Fan, i am in favour of the Townsville City Council providing financial assistance to the Fury and encourage them to do so. If this were Gold Coast United, I really couldn't care. But the Fury has connected with its local community instead of shunning them, and I'd really like to see the community return the favour and help them out.
ian scott (19/03/2010)
Comment: As a supporter of the fury i belive the council should support the fury. One season in the fury have already proven the doubters wrong, just think what the fury can do next season??
Grant (19/03/2010)
Comment: I'm a Central Coast Mariners fan and would hate to see the Fury lose their A-League license. I've never been to Nth Qld but intend to travel up to watch the Mariners play the Fury next season with my family. I encourage the council to help keep the Fury running.
Graham Hepworth (19/03/2010)
Comment: We are Mariners supporters. My family of 5 adults has travelled to Melbourne, Canberra and the Gold Coast this year, following our team. Two years ago, we went to Wellington, NZ. We couldn't make Townsville this season, but we definitely want to come next season.

Don Tindall (19/03/2010)
Comment: I'm from London but have been following the fury closely from overseas and there is actually quite a following for them over here. It would be disastrous if they went out of business as there is a group of us planning a month long trip just to watch them. every sports club deserves backing not some rather than others.

Plymouth (25/03/2010)
Comment: SAVE THE FURY - At the end of the day if a City the size of Townsville cannot have 4 sporting teams then the prospect of Townsville improving as a city both culturally and in more genral terms is not looking too great. I thought Queenslanders loved their sport or are they just fickle.. Wake up Qld letshave sport all year round.. and reap the benefits of Football coming to Townsville in World Cup year....
Teresa Turish (25/03/2010)
Comment: As a Wellington Phoenix supporter I appreciate what North Queensland Fury have added to the A League, the crowds they draw and their contribution to the game.
