More than 80 passionate members and fans took part in a positive and productive evening during Perth Glory's Fan Forum on Tuesday night at nib Stadium.
Perth Glory members, fans and faithful arrived tat Glory's home of football to ask the panel raw and hard hitting questions for the upcoming 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season.
The panel consisted of new club CEO Peter Filopoulos, COO Anthony Radich, Head coach Kenny Lowe and nib Stadium CEO Peter Bauchop. The fourm was chaired by channel 7 and 6PR sports reporter Peter Vlahos.
Among the crowd was Football West CEO Peter Hugg and some journalists from Perth's media.
The forum started with a rousing speech from Perth Glory Chief Executive Officer Peter Filopoulos, who outlined the importance of a new strategic five year plan which aimed at getting 10-thousand members and an average crowd of 15-thousand fans at home games.
Filopoulos also spoke from his own experience moving to Perth, and from earlier days when he was the CEO of South Melbourne FC between 1992 and 1999.
Head coach Kenny Lowe answered some questions sent in via email. Some focused on the new playing stock in Guyon Fernandez and Diego Castro while others honed in on local talent and their pathway to the Hyundai A-League.
