Wanderers Foundation

Community is an integral driver at the Wanderers. While football is our primary objective, it is the overall Western Sydney community where we aim to make a real difference.

We are a football club for the people of Western Sydney, by the people of Western Sydney.

Our resonance as a community club is unsurpassed. With over two million of us that call Western Sydney home, we are
the product of our people with football part of our DNA.

We are a club powered by the support of our people — young and old, pros and amateurs, families and volunteers.

The launch of the Wanderers Foundation will allow us to directly make a difference around initiatives that will make a positive impact in our community:

  • Youth development (boys and girls)
  • Healthy active lifestyles through football from youth to seniors
  • Multicultural engagement
  • Supporting indigenous communities
  • Supporting disadvantaged youth
  • Promoting and advocating all abilities football
