Western United A-League Women side to call City Vista home

Western United A-League Women

Western United will continue its strong partnership with Caroline Springs George Cross FC and City Vista Pavilion and Sports Field, with the Club’s inaugural Liberty A-League Women side set to call the facility home for the 2022/23 season.

As well as using the facility as its training base, Western United will open it’s A-League Women journey at City Vista with a blockbuster Round 1 clash against Melbourne Victory on Saturday November 19.

City Vista was the training venue for the A-League Men side in seasons one and two and more recently has become the home of Western United’s Academy and Women’s Development Squad.

As part of the deal, the team will also have access to the gym facilities at the neighbouring Springside West Secondary School, continuing a partnership that has been equally important to the football club in its early years.

Western United General Manager of Football Mal Impiombato said having the team use City Vista was an ideal scenario heading into the season.

“We are very grateful for the continued support of Caroline Springs George Cross FC, a club that has supported our football program since our inception, the beginning of our Women’s Development Squad and now moving into our inaugural A-League Women season,” he said.

“Our players will be able to play and train at an elite facility and have a home in the West for this season which is really important to us.

“We look forward to continuing that relationship, and also that with Springside West Secondary School, and we’re confident it will help us be in the best possible shape to compete in the A-League Women.”

Caroline Springs George Cross FC President Mark Sultana said the continued partnership with Western United has been a source of pride for his club.

“Western United have been valuable tenants at City Vista Pavilion and Sports Field since the club’s inception and we are very pleased to be welcoming the A-League Women team in the coming months,” he said.

“The partnership has been beneficial for both parties, and we hope to be able to continue to provide Western United with opportunities to use our top-class facility.”

City Vista Recreation Reserve remains a leading football facility not just in the West, but across the whole of Victoria and has been used by Football Victoria for key events throughout the NPL and community seasons.

The Club is looking forward to bringing its A-League Women side to City Vista before transitioning to the Regional Football Facility upon its completion next year.
