Australia’s Wyndham City is looking to build a multi-million dollar stadium as the home for a likely new A-League football team, according to several news reports this month in the local media.

The Wyndham City Council is backing a bid by Western Melbourne Group (WMG), which is in the running for one of the two new team licenses as part of an expansion of the A-League by Football Federation Australia (FFA).

There are 15 official bidders in the race for the two A-league licenses and the Australian Associated Press reported that FFA has delayed the announcement of the shortlist, which is now expected to be revealed this week. The winning bidders are expected to be announced by the end of October.

Wyndham Mayor Peter Maynard said that if successful “the value of this landmark deal for our community will be massive, positioning us as a destination of choice, and putting us on the national and international sporting stage.”

The 15,000-seat stadium is conceived by WMG in Wyndham City’s Tarneit area, a growing suburb of Melbourne. The stadium will include training pitches, sports medicine facility, gym, recovery spaces, sporting spaces for the community and residential & commercial development for the surrounding area.

“WMG is excited to be working with Wyndham City Council which will provide the impetus for our group to build a privately-funded and sustainable model for Australian football in one of the fastest growing regions in the country,” WMG said in an announcement on its official website.

“Our vision is to have an A-League team in the West of Melbourne that plays out of its own stadium – a world-class facility like the great stadiums of the world – that football fans can call home,” it added.

Maurice Bisetto of WMG group and partner at KPMG said, “Thanks to the support from the council, the dreams and the vision are now real.”
