Fremantle have received some clarity in how their return to football training may take place, with the WA Government granting approval to utilise the club’s gym from Monday 18 May and to undertake full contact training from Monday 25 May.

Both WA teams would also need AFL approval to resume those activities from those dates.

WA Premier Mark McGowan confirmed the approvals in a media conference on Thursday.

“We’re going to permit the clubs to undertake full contact training from 25 May in Western Australia, as long as the facilities and arrangements are not open to and used by the general public,” McGowan said.

“We will allow the clubs to use their gym at their training bases from 18 May, as long as there’s no access by the public and proper cleaning is in place.”

McGowan also praised both WA clubs for their willingness to work with any scenario as the AFL assess their options for a return.

“I must say, the Eagles and Dockers have been terrific out of this, they haven’t complained, they haven’t gone to the media, they’ve been willing to hub, they’ve been willing to do everything,” McGowan said.
