Our Role in the Community
Victoria’s Western Corridor is the fastest growing population region in Australia with more than 1.2 million local residents and a broader regional catchment of 1.8 million. It is also home to almost half of Victoria’s community football participants. The establishment of Western United FC gives this football community of the West a strong identity and opportunity to combine grassroots football with the elite game for both men’s and women’s leagues.
Our community is culturally diverse, vibrant and exciting, welcoming new and multi-generational Australians. Western United FC’s role in the community is to collaborate with community members and demonstrate the significant health and social benefits of our game. Our commitment is to encourage participation within the region and to optimise the unique and sustainable benefits of sport. Western United FC reinforces the importance of inclusion and tolerance in our community and continues to exemplify such values on and off the field.
With the significant demand for community football infrastructure to support unprecedented growth in population and participation, Western United FC is determined to build a unique world-class football stadium and sporting precinct as part of the club’s commitment to the community.
