Football Federation Australia adopted a policy of “one city, one club” in 2004. Melbourne Victory was the first Melbourne club to receive a license to play in the A-League’s National Competition. A five-year moratorium was put in place to prevent expansion sides from A-League areas from joining the competition. Victory was able establish itself in Melbourne for five seasons.
Colin DeLutis, an ex-vice-president of Carlton Football Club and a businessman, expressed interest in a second Melbourne A-League team. He was approached by the FFA to be the sole owner of the second license. It would be named Melbourne City. FFA chief executive Ben Buckley suggested that the A-League should be expanded from eight to twelve teams in May 2008. This was done to prepare for the 2009-10 season. Buckley revealed that there was a third bid for Melbourne. Peter Sidwell supported the bid, which was tentatively called ‘Melbourne Heart’. This bid will compete with other bids for Melbourne City FC or Southern Cross FC.
The Melbourne City bid was withdrawn from the bidding process on 25 July 2008. The Melbourne Heart FC and Southern Cross FC bids were left. The exclusive negotiating rights to the 11th league license were given to the Melbourne Heart bid in September 2008. This deal was better than that offered by South Melbourne’s Southern Cross FC bid. Negotiations went on until Sidwell’s soccer team was granted the A-League season license for 2010-11. This was on the 12th of June 2009.
