Quarter time – Hit Live

Half time – Crowd and screen interactions
Have some fun at half time! The team at B1 Homes want to give you a $5,000 build voucher towards a new home. To win, grab a friend, family member, partner or the person in the seat next to you, be arm in arm, hug or kiss, ‘become one’. If the camera lands on you embracing in a B1moment, you could win. It doesn’t matter how it’s done, just as long as two become one for a B1moment.

Three quarter time – Win thanks to Virgin Australia
Here’s your chance to win at every Fremantle Dockers home game in 2018, thanks to Virgin Australia! The club’s official airline partner will be running a new ‘Kick to Fly’ activation at three quarter time, where two lucky attendees will be chosen to take a kick at winning a trip to one of twelve destinations around the world. The winners could be taking off in Economy X to destinations such as Broome, Hong Kong and Los Angeles! For the chance to win on Sunday, all you have to do is make sure you’re seated 30 minutes prior to bounce down.

Redink time
From the 30 minute mark of each quarter the stadium will turn red for the final seconds of the quarter for 'Redink Time'. Find your voice and turn the stadium into a ‘Freo Fortress’.
