Fremantle have surpassed 60,000 members for the first time in Club history as their record 2023 membership tally continues to grow.

The Club announced in early April it had surpassed its previous record of 56,105 members in 2022.

The current tally of 60,010 shows a seven per cent membership growth so far in 2023 after achieving 10.5 per cent membership growth in 2022.

The announcement comes in the final year of Dale Alcock’s presidency, adding to a long list of accomplishments in his tenure. Fremantle will transition to board director Chris Sutherland as president following the completion of the 2023 AFL and AFLW seasons.

CEO Simon Garlick was thrilled the Club was building on its record membership number. 

“To see Fremantle’s membership tally exceed 60,000 for the first time is a great result,” Garlick said.

“We receive such loyal and passionate support from our members and it’s fantastic to see the Fremantle Family continue to grow.

“The achievement is in line with the ambitious goals set out in our 2025 Strategic Plan, where we aimed to reach more than 60,000 members this year.  

“After ranking fourth for attendance in 2022, our average attendance at Optus Stadium is also heading in the right direction.

“We average 45,410 fans per game at Optus Stadium to date this year and we look forward to seeing even more purple in the stands for our remaining home games against Essendon, Richmond, Carlton, Sydney, Brisbane and Port Adelaide. 

“It starts against the Tigers this Saturday when we hope as many of the Purple Army come along, rain, hail or shine!”
