AUSTRALIA: FFA confirm Frank Lowy’s son Steven is preferred candidate to take over as chairman

THE installation of Steven Lowy to take over from his father at the head of Australian Football appears to be complete, after he was confirmed in writing as the preferred candidate to become chairman of Football Federation Australia in November.

In a remarkable letter sent to the state bodies who will vote for the new board next month, an investment banker and an executive at Commonwealth Bank were also named as the other candidates to replace Frank Lowy and his two closest allies on the board when all three have to step down later this year.

In the letter, Steven Lowy’s credentials as a football lover are listed at length, but no mention is made of the other two having any connection with football.

The letter also claims that no other candidates have been put forward because to do so would be to risk a return “to the ‘old days’ of football if politics was allowed to intrude on an independent, professional process of selection of the best available people for the job”.
