Back in August 2019, Western United were one of eight bids with good credentials to be selected by the FFA in the initial expansion process to become either the 11th or 12th A-League club.

The 2019-20 A-League season kicks off tomorrow night when Adelaide United host defending champions Sydney FC at Cooper’s Stadium.
Can Perth Glory avenge their heartbreaking grand final defeat from a year ago? Can anyone dethrone the high-flying Sky Blues?
