Wanderers to take Liberty A-League clash to Bathurst

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed a new partnership with Bathurst Regional Council that will see the club take one home Liberty A-League match to the region.

The match forms part of the Wanderers ongoing commitment to the Western NSW region and will deliver benefits for the Bathurst community through a range of school and grassroots programs to drive and support football participation.

The Red & Black’s Liberty A-League squad will play one match of the 2023/24 season at Carrington Park.

The partnership is part of the Wanderers ongoing commitment to growing the women’s game with the club confirming an additional initiative to support the female football space.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO Scott Hudson thanked Bathurst Council for their support of the Wanderers and Women’s game.

“I would like to thank Bathurst Regional Council for all their support in hosting one of our Liberty A-League matches in the 2023/24 season,” said Hudson.

“In the year of a FIFA Women’s World Cup, it is very important to ensure that Women’s football is given the platform and exposure to continue the momentum off the back of the tournament.

“We hope that this can be the start of a fruitful relationship with Bathurst Regional Council so that we can continue the partnership in years to come.”

Bathurst Regional Council Mayor Robert Taylor said it is a great opportunity for the region to host a professional match.

“I’m sure fans from across the region will turn out in force to support the Wanderers in Carrington Park,” said Taylor.

“While the school and community engagement activities will help increase participation levels and bring new supporters to the club.”

The annual Schools Cup tournament will be heading out to Western New South Wales at the end of June to kick-start the club’s relationship with Bathurst Regional Council. More information can be found here

Alongside this, the Wanderers have launched exclusive women’s team social channels on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok to put a greater spotlight on the club’s Wander Women and female focused community programs. 

@wswanderwomen will be the place to follow exclusive and behind-the-scenes action across all Wanderers women’s and girls programs including the Future Wander Women Program, Liberty A-League Women’s team, community engagement, schools programs, active mums, and more.

“With the rapid growth of women’s football, it is the right time for the Wanderers to segment our social channels to ensure that all facets of our women’s program gets the exposure it deserves,” said Hudson.

“We look forward to growing our audience and expanding our content over the next season.”
