The Western United Football Club (WUFC) is a professional association football club that will premier in the 2019/20 A-League season.
WUFC is a football club for Victoria’s west – this includes western suburbs of Melbourne, western regional and country towns. It hopes to grow the game in the region and build a club that the west will be proud to be a part of. In our inaugural season, WUFC will play their home games in Geelong and Ballarat, while construction begins on its world class stadium and training centre in Tarneit, due for completion in 2022.
With this commitment to world-class football infrastructure, a successful team and an aspirational brand, the club seeks to give the football community of Victoria’s Western Corridor a strong identity within the elite level of football in Australia and Asia.
WUFC is owned by Western Melbourne Group.
Western Melbourne Group (WMG) is delivering a transformational project with infrastructure, economic & community benefits. WMG’s innovative business model in Australian sport provides commercial partnership opportunities well beyond the realm of existing Australian sporting clubs. The ambition, vision and commitment of Western United sets a new benchmark for all future professional sporting clubs in Australia.
