THE Western Sydney Wanderers are alive and kicking in the A-League title race after stretching their unbeaten run in the Sydney Derby against cross-town rivals Sydney FC to six games at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday night.
This was a sporting event for the ages. A 5-goal thriller that went down to the wire in front of a thumping crowd of 20,336 that brought the colour, energy and excitement to the stadium.
Fans were again asking: what better live sporting event experience in Australia than the A-League Sydney Derby at Bankwest Stadium, right here in Parramatta?
Bankwest Stadium that was built for the fans and delivers atmosphere in spades with the steepest grandstands in the country creating a wall of sound.
Passionate Wanderers Members and supporters gathered in the Parramatta CBD well before kick-off, providing a weekend boost to local business and creating a pre-game buzz around town.
The RBB marched to the Stadium and took up their spots in the Active Supporters’ Zone at the northern end of Wanderland. The energy and the noise stayed high throughout the 90 minutes of game time.
Victory moved the Wanderers to the edge of the Top-6 with five rounds remaining. Certainly, the Red & Blacks loom as the competition darkhorse in the run home to the Finals.
The Wanderers’ next home game at Bankwest Stadium is against Western United on Saturday, May 8. The Red & Blacks have two other home games – against Phoenix on Wednesday, May 26 and The Roar on Sunday, May 30.
Get out there and feel the atmosphere!
