Western Sydney Wanderers & AETOS Capital Group kick-off the 2017 AFC Champions League

The Western Sydney Wanderers last night launched their third AFC Champions League (ACL) campaign at the Hive at Rosehill Racecourse.

Hosted by Adam Peacock the night celebrated the Wanderers third entry into the ACL following last season’s league performance earning them Australia’s second place in the 2017 tournament.

Showing off the Club’s home jersey for the 2017 ACL including front-of-shirt partner, the market-leading Forex broker and CFD provider AETOS Capital Group and hosting dignitaries and business partners from Australia, China, Japan and South Korea the night was a moment to reflect on past successes and prepare for the tournament ahead which will kick-off for the Wanderers with an enticing Match Day 1 fixture with Japan heavyweights Urawa Red Diamonds.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas welcomed the hundred plus guests in attendance restating the club’s vision of being a globally recognised and respected football club.

“This is why we are involved in football, to take our Club to new challenges, and prove ourselves on the global stage,” said Mr Tsatsimas.

“The ACL is a tournament we know very well and one we are always proud to be a part of entering the tournament for the third time in only our fifth season as a football club.”

“Our presence in the AFC Champions League drives cross cultural opportunities through networking, trade and tourism for Australia and opposition countries including China, Japan and South Korea.”

Senior Vice President Councillor Mike Thomas from AETOS Capital Group (AETOS) said, “football is a truly global sport, shared by an international audience, just like forex. AFC Champions League has already built an established fan base in Asia, with wide TV coverage. And now, Wanderers are trying to expand their influence from Australia to Asia, which is one of the key markets for AETOS as well. Therefore, this is a great opportunities for the two fast growing brands to work hand-in-hand on this win-win partnership opportunity. We wish Wanderers a great season in 2017! ”

The Wanderers return to Asia for the third time after winning the tournament in 2014 and narrowly missing out on a knock-out berth in the 2015 tournament.
