Fremantle Dockers

The Fremantle Dockers are one of 16 teams in the Australian Football League. They are based in the port city of Fremantle, just south of Perth. They joined the league in 1995, eight years after their rival Western Australian football team the West Coast Eagles, and endured some tough years near the bottom of the premiership ladder before finishing fifth after the home-and-away rounds in 2003, making the finals for the first time.

The Dockers' home base is Fremantle Oval, while their games are played at Subiaco Oval.

Commonly known as simply "Freo", the team's colours are red, green and purple. Their emblem, an anchor, is based on the city's strong maritime links.
