The West Australian Football Commission is calling on all football fans to be part of history when the last ever WAFL Grand Final at Domain Stadium is held this September with half price tickets, free entry for kids and a special tribute to WA Football’s legends.

The WAFC has confirmed the historic game will be played at 2.50pm on Sunday, September 24 with a range of initiatives planned to celebrate the occasion.

A pre-game parade is planned to feature WA Football Hall of Fame inductees, 200 Club members, past Sandover and Simpson Medallists, and members of the 1977 State of Origin team to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their win over Victoria.

WAFC CEO Gavin Taylor said the tribute to WAFL legends, family activations, free admission for children and a $3 meat pie offer was all aimed at driving attendance and creating a great atmosphere for the last WAFL Grand Final at the home of football.

“We want this to be the biggest and most memorable WAFL Grand Final for everyone who attends and are hoping to attract more than 30,000 fans for the first time since 2002,” he said.

“Subiaco Oval has been the stage for some of the greatest players and most memorable moments in WAFL history and we want to celebrate its significance.

“Not only will it be an opportunity to see living legends of the game and be a part of history in the making, but a chance to watch the two best WAFL teams of 2017 in action.

“We are adding value for families by providing free entry for children and will also have a range of kids’ activities on offer plus $3 pies and the chance to have a kick on the oval after the game.

"We are also encourgaging fans to wear their WAFL jumper to the game, especially some of the older designs that may have been hidden away for many years."   

The concept of a Saturday night Grand Final was explored before Sunday afternoon was agreed upon as the best timeslot for young families that also avoids a potential clash with AFL Preliminary Finals.

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster at $15 for an Adult – half the price of the 2016 WAFL Grand Final – and $10 for WAFL club, Fremantle Football Club and West Coast Eagles members. Children under 16 are FREE.

There are also great value corporate packages on offer including food, beverages, and premium seating– contact Domain Stadium on 9287 5560 for further information.
