Western Sydney executive chairman Lyall Gorman said the new A-League club will unveil its name, logo and colours on Monday - with fans sick of waiting.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) announced the 2012-2013 A-League draw on Tuesday, with the inaugural Sydney derby scheduled for Saturday 20 October at a venue 'To Be Advised'.
While Gorman posted a note on the A-League website suggesting fans will know more about western Sydney's identity on Monday - there were no guarantees about the whereabouts of the club's home ground.
"Many fans have asked why we have taken our time in announcing the official club name, logo, colours and home venue," Gorman wrote.
"The major reason for that is that as with any new business, especially as one as important as this one is to everyone, the early key decisions of a business are critical for its successful future and time simply must be taken to get them right.
"Since the new club representing western Sydney was announced on the 4th April, we have been working feverishly behind the scenes to build the club from the ground up.
"It gives me great pleasure to confirm that the official club name, club logo and club colours will be formally announced next Monday."
As reported by The World Game earlier on Tuesday, West Sydney Wanderers is expected to be confirmed as the name with the club's strip believed to be red, black and white.Lyall insisted the club hadn't been dormant since signing Tony Popovic as coach on 17 May.
"I am pleased to say that Tony is well advanced with a number of players agreeing to join the club with their official announcements to be made in the very near future," he posted.
Those players are believed to include Mark Bridge, Michael Beauchamp, Tarek Elrich, Ante Covic and Aaron Mooy.TWG readers have been vocal in their views about the new club.
"Possible signings - Bridge, Beauchamp - Signing the right people instead of stars, No marquee, Not Spending the Salary Cap .. STILL NO PLAYERS ANNOUNCED, Still No Name ... When Am I going to get excited by this club? Why am I rushing out to buy a membership? Lyall? Hello?" Wouldwork commented.
"The Wanderers is not that great a name but it is different to everyone else - has a bit of historical attachment to the area. #1 focus is to get the right mix of young and experienced local players and engage the local clubs" pb_in_bris wrote.
