Western United Football Club is an Australian professional Football club based in Western Melbourne, Victoria.
From 2019 it will compete in the country's premier football competition, the A-League, under licence from Football Federation Australia.
On 13 December 2018 it was announced that Western Melbourne Group would be accepted into the A-League as part of the new expansion process. Western Melbourne will play their home games at Kardinia Park in Geelong for their first two seasons, while it builds its stadium and training centre in Tarneit, with completion expected in 2021.
On 11 January 2019, Western Melbourne Group announced John Anastasiadis as senior assistant coach for the club's debut season. On 24 January 2019, the consortium announced that John Hutchinson would also join the club as an assistant coach.
On 31 January 2019, Western Melbourne made their first player and marquee signing Panagiotis Kone ahead of their inaugural season. On 12 February 2019, Socceroos defender Josh Risdon became Western Melbourne's first Australian signing.
On 13 February, it was announced that the club would be called Western United Football Club after a public vote was held through the Herald Sun.
Colours and badge
On 13 February, the club revealed that they will play at home in the colours of green and black.
On 8 May, the club announced their official crest. The club's website at the time of the announcement commented that the design was influenced by the pitch of roofs in the suburbs and the West Gate Bridge, with the signature green colour representing growth, harmony and freshness.
It was revealed in February 2019 that Birmingham Sports Holdings had initially funded the bid's license fee before pulling out of the project due to a down turn in the Australian housing market that devalued the intended housing developments to be built in the same area as their new stadium.
Additionally, a 15,000 seated stadium has been proposed to be built in Tarneit, Victoria.
