FOOTBALLERS HAVE A PLACE TO GROW

Football Park on track for 2022 completion
GREATER Blacktown’s future football stars will have a great place for training and development when the fourth stage of the Western Sydney Wanderers’ Football Park is completed.
The facility is located in Blacktown International Sportspark and is officially under construction following the official turning of the first sod at the site recently.
 
The fourth stage will cost $6.25M in total and will see the construction of nine new  all-weather five-a-side football pitches, a facility featuring office space, function room and change rooms, a new amenities building for the southern area of the
Football Park, as well as landscaping and supporting infrastructure.
 
The A-Leagues club was awarded $5m by the State Government as part of the second round of the $40m Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund. 
 
The 11ha park will feature nine regulation football pitches, grandstands facing two pitches, a new Academy facility and community offices.
 
NSW Minister for Sport, Natalie Ward told media Wanderers Football Park would become a world-class facility for the development and nurturing of local footballing talent, as well as a focus on community involvement and utilisation of the facility. 
 
“The Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund has invested in new and existing facilities that provide accessible, safe and inclusive sports infrastructure for all sections of the community, including women, people with a disability and multicultural communities,” she said.
 
“Wanderers Football Park will provide an integrated high-performance facility that will improve Western Sydney Wanderers’ talent development pathways and community programs.
 
“This will ensure the Wanderers continue to develop players who will dominate not just the A-Leagues but Asian and World football.”
 
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO, John Tsatsimas said the investment underlined both the NSW Government and football club’s commitment to the Western Sydney region.
 
“This combined investment from the NSW Government and our owners will provide an incredible space for our community in Western Sydney,” he said.
 
“The creation of nine all-weather five-a-side pitches, as well as new change room facilities, will create more opportunity for us to engage with our community and create a safe, high-quality venue to cater for a broad spectrum of people - from toddlers to active seniors.”
 
Stage 4 of the development is scheduled for completion in 2022.
