2009–10 Brisbane Roar Season
The 2009–10 season was Brisbane Roar's fifth season in the A-League. For the first time, Brisbane Roar was not be the sole representative from the state of Queensland, being joined by Gold Coast United and North Queensland Fury. The addition of the new clubs and a change of ownership of the Roar have led to the club changing its name from Queensland Roar to Brisbane Roar. The change of ownership also brought about notable changes in the clubs' administrative ranks. Peter McLennan became CEO in place of the retiring Lawrence Oudendyk, while Chris Bombolas took the role of club chairman in June, which had been vacant since the departure of John Ribot in March 2008. Brisbane Roars owners increased membership and ticket prices leading to a decrease in crowd figures for the 2009-10 A-league season.

Famous quotes containing the words roar and/or season:
“Then for a moment all there was was size,
Confusion, and a roar that drowned the cries
He raised against the gods in the machine.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“The landscape was clothed in a mild and quiet light, in which the woods and fences checkered and partitioned it with new regularity, and rough and uneven fields stretched away with lawn-like smoothness to the horizon, and the clouds, finely distinct and picturesque, seemed a fit drapery to hang over fairyland. The world seemed decked for some holiday or prouder pageantry ... like a green lane into a country maze, at the season when fruit-trees are in blossom.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
