Brisbane Bullets Bid?

Does anyone know what is happening with the Brisbane Bullets bid and when it will be announced if it is successful or unsuccessful?

The Bullets will not play in the 2013-14 season. Possible for the 2014-15 but still a long way to go.

This is very annoying. I have been waiting years for the Bullets to come back.

Were they trying for next season or were they aiming for 2014/15 season?

While obviously theyd like to be in as soon as possible, it seems theyre focused on getting equity partners rather than a specific date for putting the bid up.

If they replace the 36ers, you can bet your house that they won't put up 'Sack ' threads after every loss.

So the NBL will stay at 8 teams for 2013-14? Thats a real shame.

Still need more investors. we were hoping to have our licence application in last week. we have changed our investor proposition, so we will take an investor with as little as $50k. we do have some major sponsors who have committed, infact sponsorship isnt our problem, its getting the investors.

The writing was on the wall a few weeks back when the call went out to fans asking for equity partners. That's just not happening if a team has a solid financial base.

Eddy, why did you need to be so damn greedy? Sigh.

Props to the basketball fans of Wollongong (population 292k), Townsville (174k), and Cairns (153k) for supporting their teams.

My home city with a population of 2.2 million just cannot get it done. What an embarrassment.

We are trying guys, its very difficult in brisbane to attrack the corporate $. Ask the brisbane Broncos, i can tell you they have been down on sponsorship $ the last couple of years, Qcup teams the same issue. At the Gabba they are offering cheap corporate packages to fill corporate facilities at the cricket, the corporate dollar is very hard in brisbane at the moment and no one is prepared to put up the full $ for a basketball team. infact thats not our business plan, we want more then 1 owner, we cant have another Eddie Groves if and when we come back into the league.

Hi Sitiveni. That frustration wasn't directed at you or anyone else involved with this bid. You're the coolest bunch of people on the planet as far as I'm concerned.

I don't understand this apathy within the community towards our sporting franchises. It's all pervading though, with no end in sight. Depressing is what it is.

Sitiveni
Is it a possibility looking overseas for corporate support - ie- Asia where basketball is popular. Surely the possibility of being a part of a professional sporting club in Australia must be of interest? Particularly at a lower price than what would normally cost in a larger country's market?

How about a community-owned scheme where anyone in Brisbane could buy a piece of the club for say $100?

Average attendances for the Bullets used to be around 4000 people.

Therefore 4000 people x $100 = 400,000

Is there anyway that the public can register there support which provides updates etc so we 'the public' can work as the Bullets Bid advocate to the rest of the public including corporates...there is a heap of people out there keen on this and I've seen huge improvements in administration alone at an association level (ie Auchenflower)that makes me think that Australian Basketball (specifically in Brisbane) has made huge strides towards getting some faith back.
