Outside of being the main jersey and foundation sponsor, construction giant Probuild will build the clubs new Wyndham Stadium and precinct.
Probuild Construction Director, Andrew Zinni has described the new relationship with Western United as ‘the perfect fit’ being supporters of the expansion initiation.
Zinni, a former Socceroo himself, elaborated further in a statement to A-League media on the announcement, “It’s rare that there’s an opportunity to help build a club from the ground up, and that happens to be what we do best.”
“We can’t wait to begin construction on the brand-new purpose-built, state-of-the-art stadium.”
CEO of Western United, Maurice Bisetto, is equally excited by the opportunity to have the Tier 1 construction giant as their foundation sponsor.
“Probuild is an incredibly respected business across Australia, and we are honoured to be working with them…leading into the beginning of our inaugural season,” he said.
“Its company ethos aligns closely with what our club stands for, with both organisations striving for the highest quality and success in everything we do.”
Wyndham Stadium is set to be the first fully football-owned senior stadium in the country with a capacity of 15,000 seats. The $150m project is pending permit approvals before construction begins, and it is set to be completed in 2021.
