I thought it would be nice to take some photos of the community ambience at the first AFLW Fremantle Dockers women’s game at Fremantle Oval today, but was refused entry because one of my lenses, a 300mm, was deemed too long in focal length without receiving AFL approval to use it.

All I wanted to do is a nice series of photos of people enjoying themselves, the new chill out deck, that is sponsored by the City of Fremantle, and some footy action, but alas I was not allowed to do so and returned home. That’s disappointing.

LOUNGEROOM COMFORT AT FREMANTLE DOCKERS WOMEN GAMES

The City of Fremantle has partnered with the Fremantle Dockers to create a very comfy new fan experience at AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck will give Freo supporters the chance to lay back on artificial lawn and lounge furniture while enjoying the best seat in the house on the raised and shaded deck at the southern end of the oval. 

Food and beverages will be available for purchase on the deck, with exclusive giveaways on offer for some lucky Freo fans.

There will also be free icy poles for the kids, face painting, giant Jenga and other lawn games on offer.

Entry to all AFLW games at Fremantle Oval this season is free, but access to the deck is first-come first-in and capacity is limited, so fans are advised to arrive early to secure their spot.

The female Dockers had a great season last year, with six wins from seven games, so we can expect a great game this Sunday.

The Visit Fremantle Chillout Deck kicks off this Sunday, when Fremantle take on Geelong in their first game of the 2020 NAB AFL Women’s competition. Gates open at 1.10pm.

The car park inside Fremantle Oval, car park 16 on Parry Street and the Cappuccino Strip car park on South Terrace will be closed to the general public.

Fremantle’s other AFLW matches at Fremantle Oval this season are against Collingwood on 22 February, Brisbane on 8 March and Melbourne on 22 March.

I’ll see you all there!

FREMANTLE LANEWAY FEST ON SUNDAY

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, concerts, muslim, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on February 7, 2020

 

Laneway 1

Laneway

 

The St Jerome Laneway Festival is on this Sunday from 10am till 9pm, so it will be busy in good old Freo, because the Fremantle Dockers women AFL team will play their first game of the season at Fremantle Oval as well, so be prepared for having to look for parking spots and traffic restrictions in the far west end of town.

And for those who want to jump the fence and get a free concert on Sunday, be aware that you will be prosecuted and end up before court.

FREE PARKING FOR FEMALE FREMANTLE DOCKERS GAMES?

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, fremantle dockers, local government, parking, Uncategorized by freoview on February 19, 2019

 

There are a lot of people around who have easy, but often very unrealistic, solutions for just about everything.

A letter in today’s West Australian by R.Correla of Beaconsfield fits in that category.

Correla writes that the City of Fremantle should provide free parking one hour before and three hours after the Fremantle Dockers women’s team games at Fremantle Oval.

But those games are on weekends when Fremantle is at its busiest and where the lack of inner city parking is often complained about. Parking fees are also a substantial source of income for the City and council rates would need to be increased if more free parking were to be provided.

It is also quite insulting from R.Correla to say Fremantle needs more smart people on council, and not a minority who are only about themselves. Fremantle Council is far from perfect, but the elected members do their best to make the right decisions for our community.

May I suggest to R.Correla to actually attend and observe council meetings. It’s always good to be informed first hand, rather than making ignorant assumptions and accusations.

Dockers women game

 

The first game of the season for the female Fremantle Dockers team last week was a huge success and a big win for our ladies, so head out to Fremantle Oval this Sunday to support them when they play Collingwood.

Entry is free and the game starts just after 3pm, so let’s create a big crowd of supporters!

HUGE CROWDS AT WEST COAST EAGLES CELEBRATION

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, football, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on September 30, 2018

 

premiers AAA

 

I know there are a lot of West Coast Eagles footy fans in Fremantle, even when some Dockers supporters believe that one needs to hate the Weagles when one loves the Dockers.

So I hopped on the train to Langley Park in Perth to get a glimpse of the celebrations of the new AFL premiers, who did not end up with the wooden spoon.

Thousands made the long pilgrimage from  the Esplanade train station to the far east end of Langley Park and the queues to get the very first and freshly printed Premiers merchandise were huge already at 12.30 pm as these photos show.

I am not a big fan of big crowds so hopped back on the train and did not wait for the team to arrive.

Go the Eagles!! I hope the premiership of their local rivals inspires the insipid Dockers.
