It is always fascinating to watch a new football club take its first steps. The A-League is now a 12-team competition as Macarthur FC join in on the fun. Macarthur are based in Sydney's Campbelltown, so this will be the start of what should be a spicy rivalry with the passionate Wanderers fans.

Macarthur has recruited highly regarded coach Ante Milicic and assembled a roster that should be competitive in its first year. The Wanderers, meanwhile, have pinched Welsh coach Carl Robinson from league rivals Newcastle Jets. Robinson is a former international who got impressive results in his short stint with the Jets.

When is Wanderers vs Macarthur FC?

Originally scheduled to open the season on 27 December, this match was postponed after a COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney's north. So kick-off at Bankwest Stadium is now at 7:10pm AEDT on Wednesday 30 December.

Who will win Wanderers vs Macarthur FC?

Usually, you would lean towards an established club like the Wanderers to beat a team playing its first ever A-League game. But Western Sydney is also reshaping its identity under coach Carl Robinson and an influx of new players.

The names on either side are impressive. Western Sydney have signed Socceroos star James Troisi, former Jets striker Bernie Ibini and ex-Mariners fullback Ziggy Gordon. All three have come in close to season kick-off, along with the new manager.

On the Macarthur side, look out for captain Mark Milligan, veteran British striker Matt Derbyshire, Socceroos playmaker Tommy Oar and well-credentialed Spanish imports Benat Etxebarria and Markel Susaeta. We think Macarthur will start its A-League existence with a bang.
