Along with other entrants, winners Adam Karg
and Phillip Georgios, were required to respond to an exclusive SKA case study - Asian Football Confederation
- The Future is Asia - a topic which held particular appeal for the Melbourne students, "It was an ideal study given that entries were open to teams from Asian countries as well as Australia and New Zealand; it offered an equal chance for all of us," said Georgios.
In their case study response, Georgios and Karg
surmised that, as much as fast developing nations China and India would play a major role in the Asian football boom, size was not the only indicator for future success.
For their win, Karg
