The WAFL is back and a new era of the competition is here. This weekend kicks off with the West Coast Eagles entering the competition for the first time, taking on Perth at Mineral Resources Park on Saturday at 12.40pm. 

There will be heaps happening around the grounds including fun zones, pop-up food and beverage outlets and competitions for the whole family. Check out what you can get involved in at the footy this weekend.

Perth v West Coast – Mineral Resources Park Saturday 12.40pm 

Perth Football Club will host the newly formed West Coast Eagles WAFL side at Mineral Resources Park (formerly Lathlain Park) this weekend in Round 1.

At the FREE kids zone there will be a bouncy castle and the Bupa marquee with a handball target.

For the older kids (and the adults, too!) there will be a football 'dartboard' competition. With some great prizes on offer, make sure you enter.

The Phoenix Insurance Brokers half time entertainment is back, and better than ever with a $500 kick for cash. To compete, simply sign up at the Team Store by the end of the break after the first quarter.

For the kids, there are under 5s, under 9s and under 12s running races, with the winner of each heat taking home the prize of $20 cash and a $10 Perth Football Club Team Store voucher.

The canteen and all bars will be open on game day. 

Following the game, the commemorative game day football signed by both the Perth Football Club and West Coast Eagles WAFL Coaches and Captains will be auctioned in the Main Hall of the Lathlain Function Centre. After the auction, the WCE v Collingwood game will be shown on the big screen. All supporters are invited to attend.
