Fremantle’s most prestigious night on the calendar has been locked in, with players and staff to come together to award the winner of the 2020 Doig Medal on Thursday 22 October. 

After a season like no other, Freo’s night of nights will unfortunately be much the same.

With the WA government’s Phase 4 Covid-19 restrictions still in place, tickets will not be available to the general public for this year’s event.

However, we hope you will join us by tuning into all the action live from the comfort of your home. 

The 2020 Doig Medal will be streamed live from the Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth via or the official club app from 7pm WST. 

In honouring the club’s contractual commitments, many of Fremantle’s corporate partners will be in attendance at this year’s Doig Medal event.

The Doig family is synonymous with football in Fremantle, with a number of family members representing either East Fremantle or South Fremantle since the beginning of last century.

In 2000, the Fremantle Football Club renamed its club champion award the Doig Medal in honour of the family.
