Western Melbourne A-League Team Conducts Name & Color Vote

Recommended Posts

Western Melbourne Group - which was granted a Hyundai A-League expansion franchise this past December - has partnered with the Herald Sun newspaper to conduct a fan vote to determine the team's name and colors.

Victoria residents 18 years of age and older can cast their votes here. The voting period began this past Saturday, February 2nd and runs through Sunday, November 3, 2019.  

Candidate names and colors were culled from suggestions made by supporters who took part in a survey at a Community Forum the club hosted in August of last year. Said candidates are:

Team Names
Western United FC
Western Melbourne Athletic FC
Western Pride FC
Western Melbourne Warriors FC

( Participants can also submit a name of their choice for the club.)

Team Colors
Red 
Black
Green 
White

It'd be interesting to have them partner with the Aussie Rules code team and just call themselves "Western Bulldogs AFC"

Green and Black, Western United. 

 

That's my hope, as an American. I think that could be tight, and no teams in the league really have green in their schemes at all and we know it looks good with black from Sassuolo.

Honestly, I could foresee that going over very poorly, if only because most of the Bulldogs' fans want them to revert to the old Footscray name, not further entrench "Western."
