Within walking distance of Pirtek Stadium, the Ladies Day provides a perfect pre-match activity for the Wanderers match against Melbourne Victory at 7:45pm that night.

Two of Sydney-s fastest growing and most popular clubs have formed a strategic alliance in the key sporting and business markets of Western Sydney to help each other grow attendances in their local communities.

The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers Football Club and Australian Turf Club have formed an official partnership that will see both organisations help to promote the other on game day and race day events.

Western Sydney Wanderers Executive Chairman Lyall Gorman and Australian Turf Club Chief Executive Darren Pearce made the announcement at Rosehill Gardens in the heart of Western Sydney today.

Under the partnership both clubs- purpose is to be among the business leaders of the region and grow spectator and sponsorship synergies.

Both clubs also aim to increase the profile of the sporting stars that make football and horse racing two of the most popular and highest participation spectator sports in the market week in and week out.

To help launch the partnership all Western Sydney Wanderers Members and match ticket holders for the 16 November match against Melbourne Victory will receive free general admission to Cellarbrations Girls Day Out on 16 November at Rosehill Gardens.

The Western Sydney Wanderers will also hold major events for the Sydney sporting and business communities at Rosehill Gardens, including a 500-plus guest Business Luncheon in early 2014.

Mr Gorman said this partnership is another example of the Wanderers connecting with the Western Sydney community.

“We-re pleased to link up with the Australian Turf Club; a great organisation with a strong base in Western Sydney,” Mr Gorman said.

“The Wanderers are always looking for opportunities that will either grow the club or provide benefits to our Members and our partnership with the Australia Turf Club ticks both of these boxes.

“This partnership is a great step forward for both the Wanderers and the Australian Turf Club and we look forward to working with them closely now and in the future.”

Mr Pearce said Rosehill Gardens in the heart of Sydney-s west was crucial to the success of The Australian Turf Club and there was ample opportunity for both clubs to help each other.

The ATC-s membership base, like the Western Sydney Wanderers, is continuing to grow.

“The business networking opportunities between each other-s corporate partners alone is good reason for us to join forces,-- Mr Pearce said.

“Western Sydney is very passionate about not only sport in general, but also horse racing, and remember it is home to the richest and most sought after two year old races in the world.

“We are delighted to partner with an organisation of the calibre of the Western Sydney Wanderers and look forward to many years of enjoying each other-s entertainment and events.--
