FFA backed the Wanderers as inaugural club owners after the A-League club was launched just over a year ago.

However FFA do not see their role as being that of club owner and, after a wildly successful first season, are in the process of selling the Wanderers with investment bank UBS engaged by FFA to handle the sale process.

Quizzed on the value of the club, Gallop went on the front foot at Tuesday’s announcement of a $20m upgrade to Wanderers’ home ground Parramatta Stadium.

“There’s no doubt that this club is on a greater growth trajectory than any other sporting club in the country,” Gallop told au.fourfourtwo.com.

“It’s difficult to put a price on it but what you’re buying into is the trajectory of this club, the trajectory of football.

“With the population in western Sydney ever expanding, this is the train to get on board if you’re looking at sporting clubs in this country.”

While the Wanderers’ membership numbers are currently at 8000, below that of most AFL clubs, memberships are tipped to hit 10,000 by the time of the ninth A-League season, kicking off in October.

And the strides taken in just one season at the Wanderers and across the A-League has Gallop seeing a very bright future at Wanderland in years to come.

But Wanderers fans needn’t worry about any significant changes to the club under new owners. The sale will be contingent on maintaining key pillars of the red and black’s success.

“Clearly we’ve got some non-negotiables around the colours, the logo, the name, the venue and the general community engagement model that’s worked so well here,” added Gallop.

“Beyond that we’re looking to see what the market throws up in terms of potential purchasers.”
