Watch the highlights from Sunday's match against the Dogs.

Fremantle president Dale Alcock says an electric atmosphere at Freo’s season opener against the Western Bulldogs at VU Whitten Oval has only set the stage for what is to come next Saturday at Optus Stadium.

Both Fremantle and Collingwood will be looking to avenge opening round defeats after Freo fell by 26-points to the Bulldogs and the Magpies by eight points to Carlton.

With 45,000 tickets already sold for a historic first Australian football game at the ground, Alcock says there’s no better place to be when looking for that crucial first win of the season. 

“I think the atmosphere is going to be electric,” Alcock said.

“We’ll be on our home ground, with 40 plus thousand people cheering on our girls, we will see the absolute best from our girls no doubt at all.

“The focus now moves to that game. So we're very excited and there's going to be real history in the making next weekend.”

Alcock paid credit to the 8,500 Bulldogs and Freo fans for coming out in force on Sunday. With the standard set, he couldn’t wait to see what the purple army can do at their new home ground.

“We felt going around the crowd (at VU Whitten Oval) there might have been more than eight and a half thousand, it was a fantastic day,” Alcock said.

“There was a big crowd, obviously a very partisan Western Bulldogs crowd, so the girls were on the receiving end of that. 

“But next week, Collingwood will be on the receiving end of 40 thousand plus passionate Freo fans.

“They’ve got to come over and I can’t wait for Freo to test out our new fortress.”
