Wanderers score partnership with CDC NSW

CDC NSW + Western Sydney Wanderers FC

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed that CDC NSW have joined the Wanderers Corporate Family until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Since 2015, CDC have expanded to become one of Australia’s largest bus operators, providing transport solutions around the country for both the public and private sector.

The new deal will see the Red & Black’s iconic colours emblazoned on a dedicated Wanderers CDC NSW bus until the end of the 2024/25 season.

The branded WanderBus will play a pivotal role in supporting the club’s extensive community initiatives and match day operations.

It will transport participants in the Wanderers’ acclaimed After School Program, jointly run with the NSW Government and Wanderers Foundation, and shuttle fans to interstate away games in the Central Coast, Macarthur, and Newcastle.

As part of the partnership, the Western Sydney Wanderers will also support CDC NSW recruitment initiatives to help drive employment opportunities for Wanderers members and fans.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO Scott Hudson spoke highly of the partnership.

“We are delighted to be forming a strong relationship with the team at CDC NSW to not only serve our passionate members but the wider Western Sydney community,” said Hudson.

“The Wanderers run a number of programs, including After School, where transport to our Football Park is critical and CDC NSW plays a role in servicing this.

“I’m very excited to see the WanderBus officially on the roads and look forward to joining our Members on a number of away trips next season.”

CDC NSW CEO David Mead spoke about the alignment of values in the partnership.

“This new partnership is built on shared values and our commitment to the communities we serve. The Wanderers’ use of football to connect people, promote inclusivity, and represent Sydney’s West has brought us together as CDC NSW,” said Mr Mead.

“Through our support of Western Sydney Wanderers After School program, children can experience coaching, facilities, and camaraderie that would otherwise be inaccessible.

“We look forward to collaborating with the Wanderers throughout 2024 and 2025, with a particular focus on the schools’ program. Our decision to partner reflects our desire to engage with the community and our appreciation for The Wanderers’ efforts beyond football to foster connections. Embracing diversity in the community and within our global football network is key.”
