Brisbane Roar Football Club is delighted to announce it has appointed Hyundai A-League foundation player Warren Moon as its new Hyundai A-League Head Coach.
Moon, who previously held the position of Brisbane Roar Academy General Manager, is one of Australia’s finest coaching products having established himself during a highly-successful stint as Head Coach of NPL Queensland outfit Lions FC.
Moon returned to Brisbane Roar in September 2019 and has been a key figure in the reinvigoration of the Academy, which continues to produce Hyundai A-League players.
He will continue to maintain oversight of the Brisbane Roar Academy Program as an important pathway for our future Brisbane Roar Hyundai A-League players.
Brisbane Roar holds a special place in the heart of the NPL QLD championship-winning coach, having played in the Club’s first ever Hyundai A-League fixture in 2005.
“It’s a great privilege to be appointed as Head Coach of this great football club,” Moon said.
“As one of the Club’s inaugural players, Brisbane Roar has always meant a great deal to me. It was an honour to return to the Club in its Academy, and now to continue as Head Coach of its Hyundai A-League squad.
“There’s plenty to play for this season and plenty of work to be done in the coming weeks. I’m excited for the challenge ahead and looking forward to working closely with a terrific group of coaches and a highly-talented playing group.”
Brisbane Roar’s new Head Coach brings with him a deep passion for the Club, the continued development of its squad members as well as an unparalleled understanding of the Queensland football landscape.
Brisbane Roar Vice-Chairman Chris Fong says the appointment is a terrific opportunity both for the Club and for its new Head Coach.
“The club was focused on appointing an Australian coach as its next Head Coach and we are pleased to not only announce our new Head Coach is not only Australian, but a terrific advocate for Queensland football,” Fong said.
“He has had wonderful success in the NPL QLD, played a key role in our Academy, was a foundation player for the Club and is now becoming the leader of our Hyundai A-League team.”
“His coaching credentials speak for itself and we believe Warren has the experience and ability to continue building our Club to the top of Australian football.”
CEO David Pourre said: “Warren has been an integral part of our football setup since his commencement with us. I’m sure all Queensland local clubs, players, coaches and supporters of football will embrace the appointment of Warren and continue their support of our great club.”
