More than 200 Wanderers fans have converged on Prince Alfred Park, Parramatta, this afternoon to meet the Wanderers' Youth, Women’s and A-League squads for the very first time.
‘‘It was important to us that we celebrate this event with our community in the public domain and that we indeed always deliver on our promise to be raw and real,’’ Wanderers executive chairman, Lyall Gorman, said.
‘‘Since the birth of the Wanderers just four months ago, nearly 3000 members have come on board and we have over 100 school ambassadors and nearly 70 wonderful volunteers join our respective programs.
‘‘Our new premises are underway at Blacktown International Sports Park and we are super excited about this move.
‘‘It will give us strong representation in the west, with a physical presence in Parramatta and Campbelltown through our Westfield Women’s League team, [and] Blacktown and St Marys through our National Youth League team.’’
The players will be available to sign autographs and mingle with their fans.
One spectator said there was a real ‘‘air of excitement’’ at the venue.
The music is pumping, professional jugglers are performing and a number of fan activities are still happening, including junior skills clinics.
The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers held a three-part event in Church Street Mall, Parramatta before moving to the main event in Prince Alfred Park.
The fun will continue until 6pm.
