Formation

Originally a team provisionally called Gold Coast Galaxy were considered for inclusion into the A-League for Season 4 (2008-09) along with another team called North Queensland Thunder. However Football Federation Australia decided that in the best interests of the league this should be delayed for a year as the North Queensland team did not seem to have the financial security required and they did not want to expand to a 9 team competition.

During the intervening period a second consortium, under the name Gold Coast United, started to have dealings with the FFA and the Galaxy consortium eventually dropped out. Leaving the franchise for the A-league spot in Season 5 (2009-10) open to Gold Coast United.

Season 5

Gold Coast United have started off their first season in the A-League in scintillating form. They are still unbeaten after three weeks and have won by large margins. They started off with a 3-1 away win against Brisbane Roar in Round 1 and then followed this up with a thumping 5-0 home win against fellow newcomers North Queensland Fury. In week 3 they carried on their great form as they defeated Adelaide United away from home 2-0. However in Week 4 they got a taste of reality to life in the A-League as they sufffered their first reverse in going down 1-0 away to the Newcastle Jets.

Round 5 has seen Gold Coast United return to their winning ways and return to the top of the table by beating Sydney FC 2-1 at home. This result seems them leapfrog Sydney back to the top of the table. In Round 6 they really proved their mettle and showed that they are indeed a force to be reckoned with as they came from 2 goals down to snatch an satisfying 2-2 away draw against Perth Glory.

Round 7 saw the Gold Coasts season come to a shuddering halt as they went down 3-0 away to the Central Coast Mariners.
