Fremantle City vying for A-League spot

Comments()
Are we set for a Western Australian A-League derby in the future?

Yet another expansion hopeful has put up its hand with Fremantle City unveiling their A-League bid ahead of two teams being added to the competition in the 2019/20 season.

Despite a relatively small population, the region boasts a successful AFL team that regularly attracts big crowds and Fremantle City believes Western Australia deserves to see more A-League football.

A key part of the club's A-League bid hinges on a potential rivalry with Perth Glory.

"No A-League Football Club derby rivalry in Western Australia has EVER existed," the club's bid website site states. 

"With only 15 A-League games for WA football fans to enjoy live each season, why should you be behind the rest of the country?

"It’ s time to get a Freo team in the A-League and drive benefits down to the local grass-roots community football clubs. 

"It’s time to have fun bantering with cross town rivals on Derby Day."

Fremantle City were formed in late 2014 as a merger between Fremantle United Soccer and Recreation Club and the East Fremantle Tricolore. 

Further expansions in 2017 meant they had over 1200 registered players with an aim to become the largest footballing membership in Western Australia. 

Check out their bid video below.
