Wanderers Football Park

Wanderers Football Park expansion

The Western Sydney Wanderers Football Club was established in 2012 and continues to go from strength-to-strength in terms of its strong following, team success and community outreach. ‘For the people of western Sydney, by the people of western Sydney’ is the principle on which the club was founded, making the decision to build an elite sporting facility in Western Sydney a most welcome announcement. 

Turfcare was engaged to construct the fourth and largest stage of the Wanderers Football Park to date, the project entailed the construction of six elite football fields.

Five of these were to be natural turf playing fields, one of which is now a premium field approved for Women’s A-League competition games. The sixth field constructed was to be a synthetic field, which is now FIFA-certified.

The project also involved the construction of a 1000-seat grandstand, decorated with club colours. To meet Football NSW requirements, a media box was incorporated into the design of the grandstand. It has a touch screen lighting system, and optic fibre connectivity. Sure to please spectators of all generations, free Wi-Fi is available in the grandstand.

As the facility sits within the Western Sydney Parklands, monitoring environmental impact was also crucial during construction works. Extreme care was taken throughout the project, with some bush regeneration work completed.

Irrigation and drainage were also key elements to this project, to ensure the health and longevity of the sports surfaces. Our irrigation team delivered specialised sports field drainage, installing pit and pipe stormwater systems, overflow flood land swale, a fully automatic and remote access irrigation system, and a 2-million litre water storage tank.

“The 2-million litre water storage tank is designed to recapture stormwater and run off of excess irrigation water” explains Project Manager, Andrew.

“This tank will serve to back up existing tanks and capture water from a portion of the playing fields during rainfall, along with run off from structures, pavement and landscaped areas.”

“Importantly, it will provide WSW with sustainable options for sports field maintenance programs during Sydney’s harsher summers and when water is in short supply.”
