The AFL has confirmed that Fremantle will travel to Queensland to be based in Cairns for the final four rounds of the 2020 home and away season.

Players and staff will depart Perth following the round 14 clash against GWS at Optus Stadium, and will play North Melbourne, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs and Richmond in the final rounds, with the exact fixture to be determined.

General manager of football, Peter Bell said the club was ready to embrace the next hub challenge.

“We were really pleased with the way our players and staff welcomed and embraced the move to the Gold Coast in June, and this will be no different,” Bell said.

“The opportunity to train and play together in Cairns will add to the significant growth we have already made as a young team, in a short period of time.”

Bell was also grateful the team had been able to play home games in front of members and supporters, unlike many opposition clubs.

“As a club, we consider ourselves really fortunate to play seven games this season in front of our incredible members, who really got behind the club at a difficult time,” Bell said.

“It has been a great experience so far for our players, and I’m sure they will really cherish these next few weeks before we head off.”

The club is yet to receive confirmation on what the quarantine conditions will be on players and staff when they return from Queensland.
