We are thrilled to be welcoming A-League club Western United FC into our powerchair football community. Western United are building a growing supporter-base in western Melbourne and we will be supporting them as they build a team to compete in the Victorian Powerchair League from season 2021/22 onwards.
Western United covers a large geographical region from the western metropolitan suburbs of Melbourne, down to Geelong and up to Ballarat. Jules North-Coombes, President of Powerchair Sports Victoria, is backing the club and its effort saying “this is an exciting opportunity to expand the sport to an area we have not been able to reach in the past. Western United and its football department have committed to helping discover and empower the next generation of powerchair footballers in Victoria. We look forward to working with Western United to support people with disability to participate in football and connect with the wider community.”
Western United FC will be engaging directly with the community to develop a team and Powerchair Sports Victoria will be assisting with come-and-try sessions throughout the region.
