Parramatta. Bid for A-League team

Parramatta City Council will present a proposal to the Football Federation Australia to base the Western Sydney A-League team at Parramatta stadium. The package, valued at over $100,000, includes office and retail space in a council-owned building, rent free for 12 months and assistance in promoting the team. “We expect at least 10 games to be played at the stadium each season. Our modelling suggests a Parramatta-based A-League team will generate about $2 million for the local economy for each home game, which is equivalent to nine new jobs per game,” Lord Mayor, Lorraine Wearne, said. A decision is expected by June 25.
