Fremantle Oval

The South Fremantle Football Club has one of the most historic, iconic and recognisable home grounds in the competition, Fremantle Oval. South Fremantle Football Club shares it's ground with the Fremantle Dockers. Along with Fremantle's new state of the art facilities,the South Fremantle Club compliments these with our already impressive gymnasium, change rooms (including sauna), medical and treatment room. along with out social rooms and function areas which we believe makes our player facilities the most impressive available to WAFL players.

 

Location

The oval is a 50m walk to the famous capuccino strip, which not only has some of the best coffees in the world, but is also well known for it's eating and entertainment areas. Along with the Fremantle Markets being directly across the road, the closest beach is a 1km jog. Fremantle Oval has everything you may need at your fingertips.

The Fremantle Dockers Connection

Since the Dockers inception in 1995 they have been housed at South Fremantle Football CLub's home ground this being Fremantle Oval. Season 2000 has seen the Dockers build a state of the art training facility which includes an indoor heated pool, gymnasium and full rehabilitation facilities, these are also available at selected times to South Fremantle players.

The Aboriginal Connection

No club in Australia can boast having so many talented Aboriginal footballers pass through it's ranks. The first family to make an impact on the football scene were the Hayward brothers Bill, Eric and Maley in the 1936-1937 seasons.

But the man to open the floodgates that heralded a new era of Aboriginal influence at the club came down from Darwin in 1972 one, Sebastian Rioli. In relatively quick succession over the next decade some of the greatest names in the club's history arrived including; Basil Campbell, Mr Magic Maurice Rioli, dual Sandover Medalist Stephen Michael, the talented Benny Vigona, Wally Matera, Willy Roe, Nicky Winmar and Brad Collard. And it didn't stop there as further members of the Rioli, Matera, Campbell, Michael and Collard families soon left their mark as the McGrath brothers are doing today.

In excess of seventy aboriginal footballers have played league for the Bulldogs. There have been four All Australians, winning between them two Sandover Medals, two Norm Smith Medals, four Simpson Medals, one Tassie Medal and numerous fairest and best awards.

Stephen Michael holds the record for playing 210 games in succession from 1975 to 1983, a rare feat. He also polled 37 Sandover Medal votes in 1981 beating South Fremantle's Frank "Scranno' Jenkins, record total of 34 in 1937.

In 2009 the SFFC selected its Indigenous Team of the Century:  Ashley McGrath, Shannon Cox, Roger Hayden, Willie Roe, Basil Campbell, Toby McGrath, Nicky Winmar, Maurice Rioli, Peter Matera, Benny Vigona, Stevan Jackson, Dean Rioli, Jeff Farmer, Mark Williams, Phil Matera, Stephen Michael, Brad Collard, Wally Matera, Brad Hayward, Cliff Collard, Sebastian Rioli, Clem Michael
