Wanderland hosts its first ever double header this Sunday when the Wander Women take on Sydney FC in the Derby followed by Wanderers v Perth in the Hyundai A-League.Overview
Sunday’s match will be the seventh fixture between the two cross-city rivals. Sydney have enjoyed the run of the mill with six victories, whilst the Wanderers secured a famous maiden victory last season with a 2-1 away win.
Sydney FC are currently pointless and languishing at the bottom of the table so now is a perfect time to make it back-to-back wins against the team from Eastern Sydney.
Entry is free for WSW Members.
Historic double header
Apart from the Grand Final, the Sydney Derby is the biggest fixture on the Westfield W-League calendar and the seventh edition of the derby will take on added significance in that it’s the first W-League and A-League double header to take place at Wanderland.
Sunday’s fixture offers the Red & Black a chance to alleviate some of the pain of last week’s derby defeat in the Hyundai A-League, so make sure you’re there at 2pm for kick-off.

Making up for lost ground
Despite giving up a two goal lead in Round 1 and losing a match they should have won in Round 2, the Wanderers are playing some exquisite stuff under Norm Boardman. The team should have been out of sight before half-time in last week’s match against Brisbane Roar, and then again shortly after half-time before conceding a comical goal with an hour gone. There would be no better way to kick-start the season and avenge this daylight robbery than winning three vital points on Sunday.
Matildas in action
After missing last weekend’s match due to her Matildas call-up, Wanderers captain Caitlin Cooper returns to the side to strengthen the backline.
Kick-off is at 2pm, Members get in free and tickets can be bought by clicking here. All tickets include the Hyundai A-League match against Perth Glory 5pm later that day.
