NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers FC has today confirmed that Parramatta Stadium will host the historic first ever Sydney derby in the Hyundai A-league.

NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers FC has today confirmed that Parramatta Stadium will host the historic first ever Sydney derby in the Hyundai A-league.

Amid reports that the match between the Wanderers and Sydney FC would be shifted to ANZ Stadium, Wanderers Executive Chairman Lyall Gorman confirmed the match would not be moved.

“We listened to the football community of western Sydney and they voted overwhelmingly in favour of Parramatta Stadium as the Wanderers home ground,” said Gorman.

“That-s our home and that-s where we will stay. Parramatta is an excellent football venue and our Foundation Members will build a fantastic atmosphere for the A-League matches.

“We understand that our first ever match against the Mariners and the first ever Sydney derby will be hot tickets and that some of the public may miss out, but our commitment to our Members comes first.”

Tickets for Hyundai A-League go on sale nationally on Friday, 21 September.

“Anyone thinking about becoming a Wanderers FC Foundation Member should move quickly,” said Gorman.

“Once the national on sale commences I think the Wanderers home matches, particularly the Sydney derby, will be in high demand.”
