This relationship will aim to provide tangible opportunities for player and coach education, while engaging the community to drive a love of participation in football and converting participants to fans of the professional game.
“The North West geographically sits within both Sydney FC’s and the Wanderer’s catchment areas so it was important to confirm our ties with both these fantastic Clubs.” NWSF Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Toivonen stated.
“All three entities share the vision of growing our great game, at all levels within our region, and signing this MOU simply confirms this intent.”
“We will endeavour to continue to assist the conversion of our fantastic participation base into fans, while Sydney and the Wanderers will look help us drive participation through our member Clubs.”
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend said: “It’s fantastic we are able to expand our support for football in our heartland with this partnership.”
“We’re expanding our base at Macquarie University very soon with the building of Sky Park, our new Centre of Excellence, and this will enable us to provide even more support to North West Sydney Football who are on our doorstep.”
“We are looking forward to working with the people at NWSF and continuing to work hard to give the very best of our expertise to all of our associations.”
Wanderers General Manager Scott Hudson said that grassroots football is the lifeblood of our game.
“Our relationships with associations like North West Sydney Football are extremely important to us and help facilitate our connection to the grassroots community across Western Sydney,” said Hudson.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with NWS Football in growing the game in Australia.”
