Brisbane Roar avoid legal battle with Queensland Rugby Union

ALEX HEINKE reports.

A-League club Brisbane Roar avoided liquidation and a damaging legal battle, settling their $60,000 debt with the Queensland Rugby Union.

The QRU had filed a wind-up motion that was due for mention in the Queensland Supreme Court on Wednesday over the Roar’s unpaid rent of Brisbane based training facility, Ballymore.


However the matter was solved Tuesday between the rugby body and Roar owners, Indonesian conglomerate the Bakrie Group, reached a resolution.

QRU lawyers will be in court on Wednesday to dissolve a process that had threatened to wind up the company behind the three-time A-League champions.

Instead, the Bakrie Group remains as they look to complete an urgent sale of the club to a consortium that reportedly includes local and overseas businessmen.
