  • FFA leak the New Sydney Club Name - Western Sydney Wanderers.

     

    Football Federation Australia released the name for the new sydney club. The name, Western Sydney Wanderers, was selected after a long process involving multiple supporter forums, online surveys and back office marketing and trademark processes. The FFA website today accidentally leaked the name of the new club in a season preview document that was swiftly removed from the internet.

     

    The document clearly states Western Sydney Wanderers in their title for the Sydney Derby preview.

     

    This name has long been the preferred name for the club, ever since the first fan forum was launched at Mounties this name has been number 1 with a bullet. Having West or Western in the name itself is another popular opinion and having one or the other instead of neither will make a large majority happy.

     

    While it has taken a lot longer than many expected for the name to be released, relief at the name being one of the major favourites was expressed across Sydney. While not everyone loves the name, it is believed the majority of fans will take to the name and be happy with it.

    Lyall Gorman announces date for club details to be released.

     

    In a move which should assuage some of the ill feeling towards the lack of information released by the new club, Lyall Gorman has today released a statement confirming that the name, colours and logo for the new club will be released in a major event on the 25th of June.

     

    One confirmation was that the name will have Western Sydney in the title.

     

    This is a place holder name for the purposes of releasing the draw, but I can confirm that our new club will have the term “Western Sydney†in the title as the majority of fans surveyed expressed a desire to have those exact words included.

     

    It gives me great pleasure to confirm that the official club name, club logo and club colours will be formally announced next Monday 25 June. I thank you all for your support and look forward to an exciting season ahead.
