The Westfield W-League season kicks-off this weekend with Western Sydney Wanderers taking on Adelaide United on Sunday 10 November at Marconi Stadium, the club-s WWL home ground for the 2013/14 season.
The match kicks-off at 2pm and will be followed by the Foxtel National Youth League match between the Wanderers and Brisbane Roar at 4:10pm.
The Westfield W-League is the highest tier of women-s football in the country and one of the best leagues in the world. Having recruited strongly and retained key players a title challenge for the Wanderers is a real possibility.
With a number of Wanderers players coming from Marconi, Western Sydney Wanderers Executive Chairman Lyall Gorman said that playing matches at Marconi Stadium was a very logical step.
“There-s a lot of history at Marconi Stadium and it-s in the heart of Western Sydney so it-s wonderful to able to bring top flight women-s football back to the venue,” said Gorman.
“We have an existing partnership with Club Marconi and we-re excited to extend that to providing great facilities, and a good crowd, for both our women-s and youth team.
“We played our opening Foxtel Youth League home match at Marconi last Sunday in front of a Club record attendance so the signs are already positive.”
Club Marconi Football Operations Manager Jesse Mariani said this was a partnership that would benefit both parties.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to compliment and further strengthen the great relationship between our two clubs,” said Mr Mariani.
“The turnout of supporters last Sunday was a tremendous indicator of the support for the Wanderers from football fans right across Western Sydney.”
Tickets for Sunday-s Westfield W-League and Foxtel National Youth League Double Header are available at Club Marconi with adults $10, concession $5 and Wanderers Members free of charge.
