ccmfans.net is the Central Coast Mariners fan community, and was formed in 2004, so basically the beginning of time for the Mariners. Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.
Hearing plenty of talk that proposing to buy the CCM licence is on the cards...but reading between the lines I don't think they are looking to put up the money required.Canberra revealing details for a bid this afternoon. Unsure if that includes buying the Mariners.
Disgraceful isn’t it. Could you imagine Canberra coming in hot with oil money behind them? That would be something.Did anyone else read that the owners of PSG were the money behind Canberra and that the FFA asked them if they wanted to invest in another team instead, in front of the Canberra bid board?
Asshats, the FFA. Gallop was always the wrong option and he's possibly cost a massive investor.
I think the stadium build in Tarneit was part of their original bid to be fair. Still, not sure why that was considered as part of their bid if it wasn’t going to be ready for their first 3 seasons of existence.west melbourne already sold out geelong .with a preposed stadium at tarneit .
edit as in wm sold out the people of geelong

oh wait... the ludicrous amount they paid for the license probably had something to do with it
Well, that and the bribe from foxtel to keep expansion in Sydney/Melbourne.......It and the vast sums of money were the exact reason they got the licence. Well the shovel ready stadium wasn't really shovel ready and the vast sums of money have slowly sold their stake. FFAs way of expanding is fkn farce.
