As per our letter from the President on 5 November 2021, we are excited to announce our new relationship with the Western Sydney Wanderers (WSW). This new relationship will provide discounted WSW memberships to all members of GUFC, talent identification opportunities for GUFC players and transport to and from WSW home games.

Our involvement with WSW, will give our players a training and talent identification opportunity with the WSW academy. Throughout 2022, our Pathways and NPL programs will visit Sydney to train with the WSW academy coaches. For any player who takes up this offer, it gives them an opportunity to participate in a training session hosted by WSW Academy coaches. As always, any player identified by the WSW Academy coaching staff may be invited to train with the WSW Academy. We can’t wait to see how our players fare with these opportunities and we wish everyone that goes up all the best!

Furthermore, this relationship will benefit everyone, from our Miniroos to our Masters, with WSW offering discounted memberships to the entire GUFC community. WSW will be organising a user-pay bus service between Gungahlin and Commbank Stadium for WSW home games, thus making regular attendance at A-League games both affordable and accessible for all, giving our members easy access to high-quality football. The discount we get depends on the amount of interest we have, so we encourage everyone to fill out the attached EOI form ASAP so we can get a good idea of numbers. WSW offers a variety of memberships, some of which are for a couple of games and others that are for a full season, so there will be a membership perfect for everyone.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank WSW for providing us with this opportunity. We can’t wait to see the Gungahlin United family attend a WSW game together and we look forward to seeing how all our high-performance players go when they travel up to Sydney.
