As part of Harmony Day celebrations, not only will there be a great game of football between the Sharks and last year’s premiers, there will also be a welcome to country, a performance of We Are Australian and three performances from Bollywood dancers, Chinese Lion dancers and African Drummers.

An East Fremantle spokesperson said the club’s district area was heavily multicultural, with 46 per cent of residents born overseas in places such as the United Kingdom, Malaysia, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore and China.

The East Fremantle Football Club’s Harmony Day celebrations are on March 22.

Kick off is at noon with an international food hall followed by the welcome to country at 1.45pm and bounce-down at 2.05pm.
