Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said Wanderers Football Park would provide a dedicated facility for the development of footballing talent in Western Sydney, along with a focus on community involvement.

“The Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund has invested in new and existing facilities that provide accessible, safe and inclusive sports infrastructure for all sections of the community, including women, people with a disability and multicultural communities,” Mrs Ward said.

“Wanderers Football Park will provide an integrated high-performance facility that will improve Western Sydney Wanderers’ talent development pathways and community programs.

“This will ensure the Wanderers continue to develop players who will dominate not just the A-Leagues but Asian and World football.”

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said this investment was another show of commitment to the Western Sydney region.

“This combined investment from the NSW Government and our owners will provide an incredible space for our community in Western Sydney,” Mr Tsatsimas said.

“The creation of nine all-weather five-a-side pitches, as well as new change room facilities, will create more opportunity for us to engage with our community and create a safe, high-quality venue to cater for a broad spectrum of people – from toddlers to active seniors.”

Stage 4 is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2022.
