Adelaide United would like to announce that Board Member, Francis Wong, has resigned from his role with the Club.
Francis has been a highly regarded member of Adelaide United, and his work for the Club has been invaluable.
His desire is to focus more on grass roots football in South Australia and we are convinced he will do a tremendous job in the next stage of his football journey.
Speaking on his decision, Francis said: “After being with Adelaide United for three years, it was time for me to move on and help South Australia’s broader football communities.
“The Club has developed very well in the last few years and being able to attract more than 50,000 people to the Grand Final at Adelaide Oval shows the game is developing well in this state.”
Adelaide United Chairman, Greg Griffin, said: “Francis has been an exemplary Board Member, whose humor and strong commercial input will be missed.
“The Club is pleased that Francis has elected to remain in the sport by his recent appointment to the Board of the Football Federation of South Australia.
“Francis' desire to work at grass roots level is a credit to him as a person that contributes to the community. Francis and Suzie will always be welcome at the Club.”
Francis was also crucial to United being able to secure deals with Datong as a shirt sponsor and Malaysia Airlines as sponsors for the Club’s historic match against Liverpool FC.
The entire Club would like to thank Francis for his time with the Reds and we wish him well for his future.
