Western United’s Liberty A-League Women squad will train out of an elite facility in the Wyndham area, setting up a base at Galvin Park in Werribee.
The squad will use the facility, which hosts NPL 2 Victoria club Werribee City FC, as the Club draws closer to its move to the Regional Football Facility in Tarneit.
It continues the exposure to elite football at Galvin Park after the Morocco women’s national team used the pitch as their training base for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The pitch is in stunning condition after recent renovations along with newly refurbished changerooms and a fully equipped gym that will keep the Western women performing at their best.
Western United Women’s Football Manager Amanda Stella said it was crucial for the side to remain in the West and continue to train at a top-class facility.
“We are thrilled to have a training base in Werribee, in the heart of our catchment area in the West and a stone’s throw away from the Regional Football Facility in Tarneit,” she said.
“As well as the location, the facility itself is in excellent condition and we are extremely grateful to have an elite-level facility for our girls to prepare for the season.
“We are thankful for all of the support from both Wyndham City Council and from Werribee City FC and we are looking forward to continuing to work together over the season.”
United’s Liberty A-League squad has commenced pre-season training at Galvin Park with the new-look squad coming together for the first time.
After a fantastic debut season in the competition last term, United will be eager to go one better in its search for silverware this season.
Mark Torcaso and his players are continuing to build towards the league opener in just three weeks’ time, with an away trip to face Perth Glory on Saturday 14 October to kickstart the campaign.
