In February 2012, the Bakrie Group increased their ownership and now holds the full 100 per cent stake in the club. The purchase has been hailed as the first step in the globalisation of the competition and the club is proud to be at the forefront of the competition's growing stature within Asia.
The on-field success continued for Brisbane Roar in the 2011/12 season with the club creating Australian sporting history by breaking a 74-year old national record for the most consecutive matches undefeated by playing 36 Hyundai A-League fixtures without a loss.
The club also participated in the AFC Champions League, Asia’s premier competition, for the first time in early 2012 – competing against some of the region’s best teams in the group stage.
On April 22, 2012, Brisbane Roar became the first Hyundai A-League team to successfully defend their Championship by again displaying their ‘never-say-die’ attitude and scoring two late goals to defeat Perth Glory 2-1 at Suncorp Stadium.
