Vote for new Sydney club name and colours.
Football fans can have a say in the name and colours to be chosen for the New Sydney Club representing Western Sydney in the Hyundai A-League for the 2012/13 season.
A public vote was launched today as the third stage of a community consultation process involving a large cross section of fans from all over the Western Sydney region.
So far the leading name contenders include Athletic, Wanderers, Strikers, Wolves and Rangers. Fans are also invited to suggest another name in this unique process.
The majority of those canvassed so far have asked for the colours Red, Black and White to be the basis of the teamâ€™s colours with three combinations of these also up for vote.
Fans are invited to lodge their preferences at www.footballaustralia.com.au/vote.
From inception, an undertaking was made to ensure community engagement is at core of the new club with a process taking place over the past three weeks seeing more than 1,000 fans have had their say at seven community forums in Mt Pritchard, Parramatta, Rooty Hill, Penrith, Castle Hill, Campbelltown and Bankstown.
Over 4,000 fans have already completed an online survey on the culture, values, name, colours, playing style, personnel and preferred home ground of the new club.
The forums and the online survey have shown a clear preference for the clubâ€™s name to include the geographical reference of West or Western.
