The Fremantle Dockers take on Geelong this Thursday 15 July at Optus Stadium. Bounce down is at 6.10pm
The game will be played as the annual Starlight Purple Haze Game, proudly presented by South32.
The 19th edition of the game will have increased significance following the tragic passing of Milli Lucas, a Starlight Star who earlier this year lost her battle with cancer.
Fremantle will wear a special Milli Tribute Jumper on the night, which has been drawn and designed by Milli’s sister Tess and brother Joel.
Freo fans can also register their Purple Haze Fans Pledge to raise funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, pledging a dollar amount for every goal Fremantle kick!

STAND FOR MILLI
Optus Stadium on a Freo match day was Milli Lucas’ happy place and to pay tribute to that, fans can stand and cheer for Milli at the 14-minute mark of the first quarter as a nod to her bravery, courage and beautiful smile.
Triple M Live – The talented Trent-Jean Michel will be performing live at quarter time from the level 5 stage.
