The Canberra A-League bid have signed 5000 members less than a month after launching and they now want to double that number.
It means the expansion club already has more members than A-League grand finalist the Newcastle Jets (816), Central Coast Mariners (2545) Adelaide United (3232), Perth Glory (4057) and likely the Wellington Phoenix (N/A).
The Canberra bid team will submit its final application to Football Federation Australia on August 31 and hopes to be one of two teams added to the A-League on October 31.
They're up against eight rivals bids after two of the three Sydney teams joined forces on Monday, with South West Sydney Football Club and United for Macarthur forming a super bid.
Canberra's team are firmly focused on their own bid and signing as many members as possible, while also working to secure government and private funding.
