Western United is getting ready to finally play home matches at its new training ground in Tarneit.
The A League franchise has divided home games between Geelong, Ballarat and Melbourne during its first four seasons, while the Regional Football Facility in Tarneit was being built.
Director of Football Steve Horvat said it was an exciting time for players and the club.
“It’s the first season in our fifth year that we’ll be moving to our new purpose built training facility, firmly in the west of Melbourne and just up the road from Geelong,” he said.
“At some point this season throughout the summer, we will move over there and play the majority of our home games, both with the A-League women and A-League men.”
The men’s first game of the season will be against Melbourne City at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on October 21 from 5.30pm.
The women kick off their season on October 14 against Perth Glory.
