THE WAFL has confirmed Kulin will host the round 7 game between West Perth and Claremont.

It will be the first WAFL game played in Kulin, which is 283km south-east of Perth.

The game will be played on Saturday, April 30 at 2.15pm, at Freebairn Recreational Centre and hosted by the Eastern Districts Football League and West Perth Football Club.

WAFL manager Cameron Knapton said the league was committed to continuing games in regional areas as part of the State Government’s country sports enrichment scheme.

He said with the Government support “we can provide a great opportunity for regional fans to see a WAFL game in their own backyard”.

“It is also a great opportunity for our WAFL clubs to continue connecting with their regions,” he said.

“A significant amount of talent comes from country WA and we must keep engaging with these communities.”

There have been 51 WAFL games played under the scheme since it started in 1999 and more than $1.1million contributed to it.

Overall, 69 WAFL games have been played in country WA since 1984.
