The inaugural Optus WAFL Women’s Grand Final will be played between East Fremantle and Swan Districts at 2.35pm this Saturday, September 14 at Mineral Resources Park, Lathlain.

East Fremantle progressed straight to the Grand Final after defeating Subiaco in the Second Semi Final a fortnight ago and have the chance to defend their League Premiership in last year’s WA Women’s Football League competition.

Swan Districts claimed a convincing 45-point win over Subiaco in the Preliminary Final last Saturday to secure their place in the Grand Final, setting the scene for an exciting contest between the two in-form teams of the competition.
