The Fremantle Dockers Women’s side will play against an AFL Women’s league opponent at Perth Stadium in Western Australia on February 10, 2018 – with the match expected to be the biggest standalone women’s sport event ever held in the country.
Crowds to see the AFLW side against a yet-to-be-announced opponent are expected to be in excess of 30,000, breaking the attendance record for an AFLW match and easily eclipsing the 10,000 who watched Fremantle’s AFLW debut at Fremantle Oval.
The McGowan government of Western Australia will provide free public transport to and from the match, with tickets only A$2 and all proceeds going to charity.
Ahead of the match, the Fremantle Dockers men’s team will train for the first time on the Perth Stadium playing surface, followed by a signing and photo session.
