WANDERERS BUILD THEIR HQ
SPORTSPARK BECOMES THEIR PERMANENT HQ
BLACKTOWN Council has announced Western Sydney Wanderers will officially make Blacktown International Sportspark the club’s headquarters this year.
The council has been working with the Wanderers over the past few years to create a state-of-the-art training complex at Rooty Hill sports venue.
In September, The Standard reported the Wanderers would call the Rooty Hill ground their official training base from 2016.
But Blacktown Acting Mayor Jacqueline
the Donaldson said the sportspark would be moving to become the “real” home of the Wanderers.
“We are moving from being the spiritual home of the Wanderers to being the Wanderers HQ,” Ms Donaldson said.
“Work has already started to develop a state-of-the-art training facility, youth academy and clubhouse – a real home for the Wanderers’ players and staff.
“Blacktown International Sportspark is the perfect location for the Wanderers. It’s in the heart of western Sydney and surrounded by a range of high-quality sporting facilities.”
Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer was excited.
“I am delighted we have the opportunity to set down permanent roots in Blacktown and create a base that will be an incredible asset to western Sydney,” he said.
