Western Sydney Wanderers FC have joined forces with global manufacturing and technological innovator Komatsu Australia.

The two-year partnership will see Komatsu, who this year celebrates their 100th year in business, support the Wanderers A-League Women's side and feature on the right-sleeve of the jersey. They will also support a range of community initiatives led by the club in the women's football space.

The sponsorship was announced recently at Komatsu's headquarters in Fairfield with several players and coach Catherine Cannuli, who is from Carnes Hill, attending.

"The next two seasons are set to be major on both a domestic and international level with the FIFA Women's World Cup on our shores in 2023, and we are very proud to have Komatsu on-board to support our A-League Women's team over this period," Western Sydney Wanderers chief executive John Tsatsimas said.

"Komatsu's global reach can be seen in western Sydney today, where they have found a home for their business and supported so many families with employment opportunities."

Komatsu Australia managing director and chief executive Sean Taylor said through the partnership with the Wanderers, they want to showcase not only the "remarkable" female footballers but shine a light on the opportunities available in their industry.

"Many are not aware of the diverse roles and exciting career paths available in the construction and mining industry, working with exciting and sustainable technologies. From apprentices to engineering, sales, and service technician roles, we want to make sure women are given greater opportunities to make their mark," he said.

"Komatsu is incredibly excited to partner with the Western Sydney Wanderers FC Women over the next two years in what is an exciting time to be part of women's football in Australia.

"So many of our staff, customers and future employees are based in this vibrant region, and football is the lifeblood of many of their communities."
