The Best of #SokkahTwitter 2018 – Qualifier 2
The second match up of the competition is Qualifier 2 for a place in Round 1.
FFA changes logo
In September the FFA released a new logo to bring all the brands under one banner. It was basically the A-League/W-League/NYL logo, so not sure why it wasn’t all released in one go.
The FFA stated: “The three elements represent the three key things that set football apart, its atmosphere, diversity and ability to unify and connect us to the rest of the world.”
#SokkahTwitter went on the offensive pointing out the hypocrisy of the above statement when policies such as the NCIP still exist and how releasing a new logo during the current political turmoil within the game was the last thing on the list to do.
Football Federation Australia today unveiled a new logo and brand, to promote the whole of football in Australia.

Finally. Expansion. The old FFA board kept delaying it and then announced they will let the new FFA board decide what to do with it. The new FFA board decided to go ahead with expansion and after more delays, announced Western Melbourne Group and Macarthur South West Sydney as the 2 new team. Trigger Twitter meltdown as everyone had their say in whether it was the correct decision in terms of the teams chosen, their staggered approach and why other teams should have been included instead.
