CDC NSW to provide special bus as new sponsor of Western Sydney Wanderers

A new partnership will see CDC NSW provide a special bus for the A-League club next season

ComfortDelGro Corporation (CDC) NSW has confirmed it has joined the corporate family of A-League team Western Sydney Wanderers FC until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Since 2015, CDC’s expansion has seen it become a major Australian bus operator, with the company now set to see the club’s red and black colours on a dedicated Wanderers CDC NSW bus until the end of next season.

The branded WanderBus is set to play a major role in supporting the club’s community initiatives and match day operations.

It will transport participants in the Wanderers’ After School Program, jointly run with the NSW government and Wanderers Foundation, while also shuttling 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 between the club and operator.

“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,” Hudson says.

“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 says the partnership aligns both brands’ values.

“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,” Mead says.

“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.”
