The 2012–13 Brisbane Roar season will be the Roar's eighth season in the A-League. As runner up in 2011–12, Brisbane will be looking to continue their run of good form in the League, aiming to win their second Premiership. The Roar will also be looking to replicate their Championship success which saw them become the first A-League team to win back-to-back Championships. In order to replicate their 2011-12 success, they will have to make history by making it to the Grand Final, as no team has ever qualified for three consecutive Grand Finals.

As a result of winning the 2012 A-League Grand Final, the Roar will compete in the 2013 AFC Champions League for the second time in their history. The Roar will be looking to improve on a disappointing debut 2012 ACL campaign, which saw them pick up three points, finishing equal bottom of their group. Following the departure of manager Ange Postecoglou to Melbourne Victory, Rado Vidošić, who has been the clubs' assistant coach for the past seven years, took over as manager for his first full season in charge. After 11 games at the helm, Rado Vidošić was elevated to the Technical Director's role with the club, with former Gold Coast United coach taking over as head coach.[1]

A-League[edit]

Main article: 2012–13 A-League

Having been the first signing for former coach Ange Postecoglou, Olyroo international Andrew Redmayne signed a contract with Melbourne Heart on 21 January 2012. Having featured on just 2 occasions for the first team, Redmayne would officially join the Heart on 31 May 2012, citing he needed to play first team football.[23] The Roar would welcome two South Koreans to the club on trial to see if they could potentially be a signing for the club. With one spot left on the visa list with the departure of Canadian Issey Nakajima-Farran, only one could be signed. However, with the trial having finished, neither player was signed and inevitably, both players left the club. With his future in the air and several clubs interested in his services, former Gold Coast United player Ben Halloran would eventually sign with the Roar on a three-year contract on 13 May 2012, with ex Roar coach Postecoglou missing out on his signature.[24] On 15 June, Brisbane Roar W-League coach Jeff Hopkins would be announced as Rado Vidošićs right hand man for the coming season, with his tactical knowledge and analytical skills being described as excellent and beneficial for everyone at the club.[25] Just 4 days later, The 2012–13 A-League season would be drawn, with a rematch of the previous seasons Grand Final taking place in Perth, with the game taking place at Paterson Stadium. This will see the first time football (soccer) has been played at the stadium since the 2003-04 National Soccer League Preliminary Final which saw the Glory defeat Adelaide United 5-0.

On 9 July 2012, Bahraini central defender Sayed Mohamed Adnan would knock back a contract offer to remain at the Roar, citing the need for him and his family to move back to the Middle East.[26] The leaving of the lanky defender would free up a second Visa spot for the club for the coming season. With this news circulating, the Roar have been rumoured to have a high intention of filling the now open visa position with another foreign defender.[27] Just a day later, the defensive unit at the Roar would get a reprieve with the promotion of Youth League goalkeeper Matt Acton on a 2-year contract. The promotion would see a second goalkeeper join the first team since the departure of Andrew Redmayne.[28] On 17 July 2012, one of the South Koreaans who trialled with the club back in May, Do Dong-Hyun, signed a 3-year contract with the Roar, taking one of the two visa spots left open by the departures of Issey Nakajima-Farran and Sayed Mohamed Adnan. The 19-year-old left winger brings the number of players in the squad to 20.[29] Exactly a week later, the Roar would open their pre-season account against Brisbane Olympic at Goodwin Park in Yeronga. The Roar would turn on the style, easing to victory in a 5-0 romp over the Brisbane Premier League side. A George Lambadaridis header via a cross from new signing Do Dong-Hyun would take the Roar to a 1-0 lead at half time, before a hat-trick by Besart Berisha and an own goal by an Olympic defender would seal the win in the second half.[30]

On 1 August 2012, Michael Theoklitos would change his surname via deed poll to Michael Theo. Theo would claim that "Around the football traps, I’ve always been known as Michael Theo so I just thought, why not make it official?" [31] Just 4 days later, youngster Kofi Danning would sign with fellow Bakrie Group owned team, Belgian side C.S. Visé on a two-year contract with the option of a third year.[32] On 14 January 2013, Brisbane Roar were knocked out of the 2013 AFC Champions League losing 3-0 on penalties to Buriram United after a scoreless draw. This made them the first ever A-League side to fail to make the group stages of the tournament after getting a Play-off Spot.

A-League Finals series[edit]

2013 Asian Champions League[edit]

Brisbane initially qualified for the 2013 AFC Champions League as a result of winning the 2012 A-League Grand Final, qualifying for the Group Stage. However, on 29 November 2012, the Asian Football Confederation cut Australia's initial 2 direct group stage slots and 1 play off slot to just 1 direct group stage and 1 play off slot for the Asian Champions League. As a result of that, the Roar's direct group stage was removed, leaving the two time A-League champions with a play off spot. Since the Central Coast Mariners won the premier's plate as a result of finishing first in the regular season, the Mariners would take the direct group stage slot.[33]

Despite earning the right to host the match courtesy of Australia’s higher points ranking during the Asian Football Confederation’s evaluation process, Brisbane was forced to seek a change of match day for the fixture. With Suncorp Stadium unavailable on the matchday designated by the AFC and a Hyundai A-League match scheduled the next day, Brisbane sought to have the matchday officially changed by the AFC. The club were told in response the calendar had been finalised and could not be altered.
