Football Federation Australia chief executive David Gallop said the organisation will make a profit from the upcoming World Cup, but admitted a difficult market is making the search for a new sponsor for the Socceroos problematic.

Gallop told Financial Review Sunday on the Nine Network that the FFA would also enter into discussions with SBS regarding a possible move of its A-League coverage to the network’s primary channel after low ratings on SBS2 this season.

“That is certainly something we are talking to SBS about, making sure we are accessible to people and that they know where to go to get their A-League on a Friday night,” he said.

The A-League, which begun its final series on Friday night, is in the first season of a four-year $160 million broadcast deal with Fox Sports Australia and SBS. Fox show all five weekly matches live, while SBS simulcasts the Friday night match on SBS2. ...

Raiders midfielder Nicholas Orr and Croydon forward Alemayo Kebede have tied for the 2012 Super League Player of the Year, the Sergio Melta Medal.

The pair finished with 20 votes, one clear of Campbelltown City captain Vas Parhas and two ahead of Adelaide Blue Eagles midfielder Jace Cummins.

For Eritrean international Kebede, it completes an amazing journey after he and his national squad team-mates vanished from a tournament in Kenya in December 2009.

The squad sought refuge in a Kenyan Refugee Camp before relocating to Australia in late 2010.

In his second year in Australia and second season with Croydon, Kebede earned man-of-the-match honours four times during the campaign and polled votes in eight matches, including the final three fixtures.

For Orr, it is the second time the midfielder has claimed the Sergio Melta Medal, winning it in 2007 whilst playing at Para Hills.

Coincidentally Orr also shared the top honour that year, tying with triple Sergio Melta Medal winner Simon Catanzaro. ...
