Sydney should change their name to Sydney City

Western Sydney should be Western Sydney Wanderers or West Sydney Albion (Albion is Sydney's original name)

I've said it before, I'll say it again.

If they're thinking of a team that's going to represent from the bottom of the hills district in the North, to Campbelltown in the South, Blacktown in the West to Parramatta and everything in between, the club should be called Cumberland United - as thus it unites the entire Cumberland Plain.

That's cool and I like the idea, but... nah. Cumberland sounds so shit and alot of people wouldn't understand it. They need to go for marketability rather than being clever.

Sorry joffa you beat me to it


That's okay mate, I like your idea better 'Sydney international FC'


love it. Great suggestions. Either one, but International Sydney is my preference. White tops. Awesome rivalry can be built and may bring success.

International for cultural diversity, and for all those followers of successful Euro clubs.

Finding a name that works will be damn hard.

Nothing really appears to work that well, but whatever is chosen better be representative of the varied make up of the population. United is far too overused. Unity FC might be a play on it though :)

Stroke of genius right here....

Glasgow Rangers need money... Clive Palmer Bank Rolls them to replace GCU... but he needs fans, so he plants them in Western Sydney.

Im not gonna lie, 'Sydney West Rangers' will have the league in their back pocket, like Brissy vs Adelaide boys, like Brissy vs Adelaide....

Always wondered about having team called international. Symbolically it works as it is very inclusive of the international community that is sydney.

West Sydney International FC?

Surprise, surprise. All the recent talk of a West Sydney team was just a beat-up to counter negative press from FFA FFAILURES, Clive Palmer etc.

White knight rejects business model for a western Sydney team

by: Ray Gatt
From: The Australian
February 27, 2012 12:00AM

FOOTBALL Federation Australia's hopes of getting a western Sydney team up and running in the A-League by next season have been dealt a body blow after its hand-picked white knight turned his back on the idea.

It is understood prominent businessman and passionate football follower Paul Lederer told the FFA on Friday he does not want to be involved in the new franchise because he believes the business model is a recipe for disaster and would leave the club open to incurring huge financial losses.

As revealed in The Australian last week, the FFA approached Lederer, managing director of leading smallgoods company Primo, to head a consortium of eastern suburbs businessmen to get a team from the recognised heartland of the sport in NSW up and running by next season.

He was given several weeks to make a decision and was due to inform the head body at the end of last week.

However, there were already concerns about the FFA's business model, with suggestions it would have to undergo major reconstructive surgery.
Top 50 Media

FFA chief executive Ben Buckley confirmed late last week that there were ongoing talks with a number of people regarding western Sydney but would not reveal any names.

He said the right structures were in place to have the franchise set up for the 2012-13 season.

Unless FFA chairman Frank Lowy, who vigorously pursued Lederer for at least 12 months to be involved, can get some of his renowned persuasive powers to work, it appears the head body is resigned to Plan B -- whatever that might be.

A source told The Australian there hasdbeen a "parade of eastern suburbs types" through the corridors of the FFA offices in recent weeks.

The Australian also revealed last week that trusted Lowy friend Ron Malek, the joint chief executive of leading independent corporate advisory firm Caliburn, had been enlisted to help FFA bring interested investors to the table.

Finding the people prepared to invest as much as $6 million to start up the club has been a big hurdle for FFA.

According to one source, such is FFA's desperation to get western Sydney in next season that the new franchise would not have to pay a licence fee.

Western Sydney is seen as pivotal to the FFA's plans. The sport has already lost considerable ground to the AFL and NRL in the area, which have poured tens of millions of dollars in what is viewed as "the battle of the west".

The franchise would provide a crucial bargaining chip when the FFA meets to renegotiate its television rights later this year.

It is hoping to snare a massive deal so that it can provide much needed funds to the financially struggling A-League clubs, which are reportedly leaking as much as $30m a season.

I have always been a fan of something along these lines.
I don’t see the need of “West” to be in the title though, it may alienate allot of potential supporters from other areas, and also where is the centre of Sydney? Should Sydney FC change their name to East Sydney?
Another favourite of mind would be “Wanderers of Sydney” which I’m sure will just be shortened to “Wanderers”, keeps a subtle reference to the west with the initials too.
Would love to see them play in red and black hoops ala Flamingo or one of the Asian sides whose name escapes me at the moment.

responding to that article, what a shock.
but why does the FFA have a business plan for western sydney? surely it should be the bidders that need to provide this and the FFA looks over it, not the other way around?
also loving the fact that the FFA is so desparate to have a team here now, about seven seasons too late.

The FFA have a business plan because they have learnt from past failures that like all good franchise systems you need to have business plans for potential investors otherwise your brand can become tarnished by poor exicution and how it acts in the market (Palmer, Fury and NZ Knights).

By now using a set model they can control all aspects like a Macca's restuarant or JB HiFi outlet.
