Having previously hosted Wanderers Hyundai A-League, FFA Cup and Westfield W-League matches at the stadium, Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas believes Panthers Stadium is the perfect place for Wanderers to make history in the FFA Cup.
“We would like to thank Panthers Stadium and Penrith City Council for supporting us in hosting this match,” said Tsatsimas.
“The Wanderers have a fantastic record for crowds and results at this stadium in the past and we look forward to bringing the Wanderland experience back to Panthers Stadium.”
Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler said he was excited Penrith would play host to the FFA Cup Semi Final for the cross-town rivals, further cementing Penrith’s reputation as a major event destination.
“The Penrith community will be thrilled the Wanderers have the opportunity to play in front of their western Sydney fan base right here in Penrith, we are the home of world class events in Western Sydney,” Cr Fowler said.
“Council is delivering on its commitment to providing headline events for locals to enjoy in their own backyard as well as attracting visitors to our city where there is so much for visitors to see and do.
