“I’m very excited to have extended my stay at Western United. The club has already built a great culture here and I’m happy to be part of it. With the players and coaching staff led by Head Coach Mark Rudan that we have hopefully we can achieve a lot of success,” Lustica said.

There's no word as yet on whether Ballarat's Mars Stadium will feature when the A-league recommences for United when they take on Melbourne Victory on July 16.
