Why are they called the Bitumen?

Searched the entire thread and nobody mentioned the source of the nickname.

The Western United CEO when the name and club colours were announced;

Maurice Bisetto said: "We enjoyed the process of involving the community and what emerged was a great story of nature and infrastructure.

"The blacktop of the bitumen with the greenery of our suburbs. It seemed like a perfect combination.

"Greenery"? Looked pretty parched on most of the photos.

That's actually a pretty easy answer - it's pretty much a one step process:


Is he wanted by Sydney FC or Melbourne, yes or no?

He’s had it rough re Marquees (here and there) but maybe in his head he’s still at SFC.

Like the Nix have the Fever Zone at home games for Yellow Fever - Some how at Western United WERE going to name the Fan Zone The Green Wedge, but prior to release of memberships the WU fan group got wind and complained. 

But first game of the season YF need to erect a "The Green Wedge" Banner above the seating at the Northern end.

Would a huge laugh!
