Who we are
Established in 1994, the Fremantle Football Club is a professional club competing in the Australian Football League (AFL).
Nicknamed the ‘Freo Dockers’, the club’s elite training and administrative headquarters is located at Cockburn ARC in Cockburn Central.
Our club proudly fields a men’s team coached by Justin Longmuir and captained by Nat Fyfe and plays at Optus Stadium in Perth, WA.
Distinguished players in the club’s history include six-time All-Australian and captain for nine years Matthew Pavlich, 271-gamer and former ruckman Aaron Sandilands and Nat Fyfe, a dual-Brownlow medal winner and three-time Doig Medallist. The men’s team made club history in 2013, playing in the Grand Final match against Hawthorn.
Fremantle has also featured a team in the AFL Women’s league since the competition began in 2017. Coached by Trent Cooper and captained by Kara Antonio, the women reached the heights of the preliminary final in 2019.
The club celebrated its 25th year in the AFL in 2019, and is supported by Fremantle fans and members, known as ‘The Purple Army’.
