Victory Keeps Wanderers in Second
Unbeaten now in 11 straight matches at the now know Wanderland the Western Sydney Wanderers remain in second place behind the Brisbane Roar.
Tomi Juric had a very successful return to the home side after missing 5 straight matches through injury. In the 20th minute Juric volleyed home a spectacular goal allowing his side to take the lead. Six minutes later the lead was doubled by Hersi who finished a fine build up by knocking one in from close range.
Wanderers kept the pressure on in the second half and remained strong defensively when required but the score remained 2-0 taking home the 3 points.
The Selling of the Western Sydney Wanderers
The Football Federation Australia’s core business isn’t to own A-League Clubs but with a sudden gap in the market the Western Sydney Wanderers were born and starred in the 2012/13 season.
With this gap now filled chairman of the FFA Frank Lowy met with Lyall Gorman in order to discuss a range of issues. However with the Socceroos now having made the 2014 FIFA World Cup this will bring about another positive issue with the FFA looking to fast track the sale with it all being completed prior to the start of the 2013/14 A-League Season.
There is an expectation of fetching a figure of $15 Million for the club however some experts are saying that this is unrealistic.
$20 Million Parramatta Stadium Upgrade
The Western Sydney Wanderers fan base is responsible for the government’s decision to invest in the multimillion-dollar upgrade of Parramatta Stadium which will be due to be completed by 2015.
The upgrade will increase capacity from 21741 to 24000 and Chief Executive David Gallop praised the fans of the Western Wanderers for being responsible in making this happen.
The investment will cost $20 million but with the Western Sydney Wanderers having brought 174000 fans through the turnstile since their inception into the A-League resulting in $18.3 Million in revenue, the government’s investment is justified and the Wanderers fans should feel proud as a result.
