New A Team – Strewth

April 6th, 2012 by · No Comments · Features, Football

A western Sydney team will play in the A-League next season, Football Federation Australia chief executive Ben Buckley has confirmed.

Sydney is considered the heartland of Australian football, so the decision to create a new club in the city makes perfect sense.

“Yes, it has taken time to get an A-League club into western Sydney, but now the time is right, and I believe that the model is right,” Buckley said. “We intend to build a model that incorporates the community.”

“This is a major strategic investment from the FFA in the future of football.”

To back the initiative, Australian Prime Minister was in attendance to announce the provision of Aus dollars 8million in funding toward football in western Sydney.
