Western United will mark a significant milestone by hosting their first-ever A-Leagues fixture in Tarneit this weekend. The Liberty A-League leaders are set to face Newcastle Jets on Sunday at the Regional Football Facility in the west, with kick-off at 4:00pm AEDT. Currently sitting atop the table with a one-point lead, Western will look to solidify their position against the Jets, who are in seventh place, three points outside the top six.

Since their establishment in 2019, Western United have played home matches at various venues while awaiting the completion of their dedicated stadium. The A-League Men’s team has showcased their talent in locations such as Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne, Footscray, and Tasmania, while the Women’s team has found their footing at City Vista Reserve. The move to Tarneit signifies a pivotal moment for the club and its supporters, with Sourasis emphasizing the importance of providing a permanent home for both the men’s and women’s teams.
