Wanderers with trophy 

The University of Western Sydney congratulates the Western Sydney Wanderers after they were crowned the Champions of Asia.

The Wanderers became the first Australian team to win the Asian Champions League after securing an aggregate victory over Saudi Arabian team Al-Hilal in Riyadh on the weekend.

The win caps a remarkable rise for the Wanderers, especially considering the club still hasn't celebrated its third birthday.

As a community partner of the Wanderers, the University of Western Sydney pays tribute to their incredible achievement and acknowledges that the victory has put Western Sydney on the global stage.The Wanderers and UWS share a common commitment to the West, and the University looks forward to working together to engage with the Greater Western Sydney community in new ways.
