Ultimate Survival Guide To This Sunday’s Western Derby! Fremantle Dockers Facebook

This Sunday, Optus Stadium is predicted to break the record for the largest crowd at a football game in WA as the Fremantle Dockers take on the West Coast Eagles for the first time at the ground.

More that 58,000 fans are expected to attend so it’s best to be as prepared as possible heading into the match. Here’s what you need to know!

Get there early: 

Even though bounce-down is at 2:40pm, fans are being advised to arrive early to avoid crowds, with pre-game entertainment commencing from 12:20pm. This should be easy considering there’s…

Free transport!

All ticket holders and members will be met with free transportation for three hours before the game, during, and three hours after.

Match trains will depart Perth Stadium approximately every seven minutes, commencing at 9.07am
