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! ”

Raised in Chipping Norton, Brendan began playing football with local side Chipping Norton FC before moving around through various state league sides until catching the eye of youth representative teams.

Signing with the Australian Institute of Sport in 2009, the defender with Irish heritage was soon promoted to the institute’s National Youth League team.

Following a great season in the NYL Brendan, then 18, was picked up by Hyundai A-League outfit Melbourne Heart where he stayed for two seasons until a move to Asia came calling in the form of K-League side Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma.

During this time Brendan represented Australia on several occasions being selected for the U17, U20 and U23 sides, wearing the Captain’s armband for the U17 Joeys.
Injury interrupted his time in Korea and on 26 June 2014 the commanding defender returned to his home town to sign with the Western Sydney Wanderers, making his Red & Black debut against Guangzhou Evergrande in the AFC Champions League Quarter Final.

After an impressive first season earned him a two year contract extension, Brendan started 2015/16 off in the best way, scoring his first Wanderers goal against Palm Beach Sharks in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16.

Joining Perth Glory, the fullback played 63 matches for the West Coast club including the 2012 Hyundai A-League Grand Final loss against Brisbane Roar.

Having then joined the Newcastle Jets where the former Australian U23 representative remained for three seasons, Scott signed with the Wanderers on 9 June 2015 and made his debut in the 2015 Westfield FFA Cup Quarter Final against Perth Glory.

Scott made the right back role his own in his debut season and scored his first Wanderers goal in spectacular style with an incredible strike in the 2016 Grand Final against Adelaide United.

Jumpei established himself as a key player for Frontale in the following season and went on to make over 70 appearances in four seasons total at the club, scoring nine goals and featuring in the 2010 AFC Champions League campaign.

In 2013, Jumpei signed for Cerezo Osaka where he would spend the next two seasons, receiving 72 appearances in total.

After a season with J-League newcomers Sagan Tosu, Jumpei signed for the Wanderers in July 2016 and made his Red & Black debut against Edgeworth Eagles in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16.

After a barn-storming start to the season where he excited fans with his unpredictability and adventurous runs, Jumpei was announced as the Wanderers’ Player of the Month for October.
