Wanderers recognised at awards

Wanderers would like to thank all fans as the Club walked away with two awards in the Football Fan Down Under awards for the second straight year.

The Western Sydney Wanderers would like to thank all fans as the Club walked away with two awards in the Football Fan Down Under awards for the second straight year.

Australia-s biggest fan-voted football awards, the Wanderers took out Community Engagement Club of the Year and Best Stadium Experience. The Wanderers won both of these awards last year too.

For the Wanderers, a club which prides itself on embracing the heart of Western Sydney and continually giving back to the community which supports it, being recognised by the fans in both years of the Club-s existence is a great honour.

“We are here to support and make a difference in the community,” said Community Pathway and Football Development Manager Tim Thorne.

“Only football has the ability to reach into society and our aim is to be part of the marrow of the Western Sydney. We believe in the community and will always be offering our support!

“Community is core to us. Nothing we do is tokenistic.”

The Wanderers community development team was rewarded for their hard work on over 130 free school clinics, 300 player appearances, 20 multicultural events and various community development programs such as the Wanderers Literacy Program.

The continued recognition for Best Stadium Experience is testament to every Wanderers Member and fan who help make Wanderland the most amazing venue in Australian sport.

Creating an outstanding match day atmosphere is integral to Wanderland while Hyundai A-League and AFC Champions League games also feature activities for all age groups.

The Wanderers would like to thank everyone involved with the Red and Black, all of whom have contributed in making this Club something the entire West can be proud of.

Around the Bloc, the fans' podcast, won Amateur Podcast of the Year while Josh Bennett, writer for The Wanderer magazine, won Young Writer of the Year.

The Club was also finalist for Best use of Social Media.
