Western Sydney Wanderers FC will officially call Parramatta Stadium home for their inaugural Hyundai A-League campaign.

The competition's newest club, who also today announced NRMA Insurance as their major sponsor, decided on their home ground following support for the venue from the fans throughout the fan forums and online surveys.

“We have maintained from the very beginning that the future direction of our club will wherever possible be built for and by the people of Western Sydney,” Gorman said.

“The strong feedback from the in-depth consultation process we have undertaken through our various fan forums and surveys has told us strongly that Parramatta needed to be our home playing venue.

“We are equally excited about the strategic direction of Venues NSW and its future aspirations for the enhancement and development of Parramatta Stadium."

NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation Graham Annesley said the announcement will create even more excitement around the club ahead of the new A-League season.

“This announcement will create a huge buzz throughout Western Sydney as another sporting code has identified the region as a rich source of talent,” Annesley said.

“Football is the largest participation sport in the country with the Western Sydney Wanderers to play their inaugural A-League match against the Central Coast Mariners at Parramatta Stadium in early October."
