WAFL: West Perth to open season at new headquarters

THERE will be no wait for West Perth to host its first game at its new clubrooms, with the Falcons landing a round one home fixture in the WAFL.

West Perth faces Claremont on Saturday, March 31, at Arena Joondalup.

The club’s first derby of the season against East Perth will also be a home clash on Monday, June 4.

The Falcons play just one Sunday game, with the league looking to schedule most fixtures in the traditional Saturday afternoon time slot.

There will be two less rounds in 2018 than there were last year, which WAFC chief executive Gavin Taylor believed would allow for a more even competition.
