AFLW derby to raise funds for bushfire crisis

PIC: File

The Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles will come together for the inaugural AFLW Derby to raise funds for relief and recovery efforts for the devastating Australian bushfires.

All proceeds from ticket sales for the historic clash on Saturday, February 15 at Optus Stadium will go towards relief efforts and provide emergency assistance on the ground through the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Funds raised will be in addition to the $2.5m relief package provided by the AFL, AFL Players Association, players and clubs.

West Coast and Fremantle will host online auctions on their individual club websites with a variety of rare items up for grabs, with all proceeds also going to the Red Cross fundraising effort.

The Derby is expected to generate significant interest in WA football as the first AFL Women’s game played between West Coast and Fremantle, as well as the Eagles’ first home game in the competition.

Tickets for the match go on sale through the Ticketmaster platform on Wednesday.

Adult and concession tickets are $3 each, with juniors entering free of charge (junior complimentary tickets must be booked online during the purchase of adult or concession ticket/s).
