Two lucky Fremantle members are about to experience the weekend of a lifetime after winning tickets to the 2021 Toyota AFL Grand Final at Optus Stadium, thanks to Maccas!
Eight-year Fremantle member Tony Moyle and four-year member Jacob White are the lucky recipients of two ticketing draws on offer for Fremantle members and supporters.
All WA-based Fremantle members were automatically entered into the first draw for two premiership terrace tickets, valued at $2,410 per person.
Moyle, the winner of the first draw, said the news came as a shock.
“It was a bit of a shock initially, but it’s fantastic news,” Moyle said.
“We were actually due to go away this weekend up north - so I was trying to work out how we could make it to the game.
“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, so we have changed our plans around so I can attend it with my son.”
Like most football punters in WA, Moyle tried his hand at securing general public tickets last Thursday but missed out due to the significant demand.
When it came to the decision of who to bring, Moyle said it was a no-brainer to take along his son Connor to the biggest game of the year.
“We tried initially and then because it was really hard to get tickets we decided to continue with our plans and go away for the weekend and just watch the game on TV like the rest of the people in the pub,” Moyle said.
“(Connor and I) have both been Fremantle Dockers members for quite some time, my son probably a bit longer than I have.
“We always go to games together, so it was an easy choice really.
“It’s my first grand final, I don’t think it’s going to happen here in Perth again!”
The second draw was open to all WA residents, with two Category 2 tickets as well as access to a Grand Final lunch at Crown Perth, valued at $1,810 per person.
White, the winner of the second draw, said his Fremantle supporting mate has been given the call-up to attend alongside him.
“It was definitely unexpected; I’ve never won anything in my life!” White said.
“We tried to get Grand Final tickets, but we couldn’t get any which I was pretty disappointed by, but then we got the call and I was pretty pumped.
“I’m taking my best mate who is a Fremantle Dockers supporter as well…I was only planning on taking a Freo supporter so it will have to be him.”
White said that he’ll likely be siding with Melbourne for the big clash at his first ever grand final.
“It’s my first grand final, and it’s probably the only one that will be played in Perth so it’s a bit of history as well,” White said.
“I feel that I’ll be going for Melbourne purely because the Western Bulldogs won in 2016, so I think I’ll be going for the Dees.”
