The West Coast Eagles recently welcomed over 200 guests to Mineral Resources Park for an exclusive function for foundation AFLW members.
Held in the club café with sweeping views of the oval, members jostled for the best spot on the balcony to watch the AFLW squad’s training session.
Guests were officially welcomed to the sundowner General Manager – Community & Game Development Richard O'Connell, who thanked the members for their support of the club as it prepares to enter the AFLW competition for the 2020 season.
The members then had an opportunity to mingle and enjoy the included hospitality before hearing from the club’s Head of Female Football Adam Selwood, who spoke about the team’s preparation leading into their inaugural season in the league.
Two lucky guests took home door prizes, a Sherrin football signed by inaugural AFLW coach Luke Dwyer, before the members had the opportunity to head downstairs to the oval boundary to watch the remainder of the training session.
Following the conclusion of the training session, the AFLW players made their way to the boundary line for a meet and greet with fans, and to thank the foundation members for their support.
The West Coast Eagles AFLW side’s first home game will be a blockbuster match v Fremantle at Optus Stadium on Saturday, February 15, and all members and fans are encouraged to attend this historic match.
