Wanderers launch Future Wander Women program
Western Sydney Wanderers FC, supported by the Wanderers Foundation, is proud to announce the Future Wander Women program created to find and develop the stars of tomorrow.
With the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 fast approaching and rising interest in the world game on Australian shores, the Future Wander Women program is an opportunity to be discovered, mentored and developed as the next superstar in Western Sydney.
The FREE 20-week training program, which will commence in early May with open trials being held in late April, is aimed at female participants aged 14-17 years.

The Wanderers operate one of the only fee-free football academies in Australia.
Now, thanks to the Wanderers Foundation’s many donors, including ICC Development Group, the club can continue to grow its role in supporting game development in Western Sydney.
The Future Wander Women program is also supported by club partners ABC Radio Sydney, Intermain and Western Sydney University.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the program was the start of bigger plans around the club’s female participation programs.
“We are proud and excited to introduce our Future Wander Women program to our wider Wanderers community,” said Tsatsimas.
“The program has been designed to serve our community and offer a free development program for the young women of Western Sydney to progress their development in an elite environment.
“The opportunity for us to be able to work with players who have the potential to be part of our Westfield W-League team from an early age and to supplement the work their local clubs is doing is critical to the program’s success.
“Ever since the Wanderers launched in 2012, we have had women’s football as a core element of our club and business – this is just another step in ensuring female players in Western Sydney have the best opportunities in football.”
Trials for the Future Wander Women program commence at the end of April and will be conducted by the program and Wanderers Academy coaches at Wanderers Football Park with registrations now open for girls aged 14-17 (born 2004-2007).
Sessions will run every week during the school term to complete the 20-week program.
The Future Wander Women program is a free-program supported by the Wanderers Foundation with all players receiving professional coaching, training kit (including shirt, short, socks and training jacket).
