Name is members’ call

The CoJ are not asking us to change our name now but they are asking our members to consider it. I don’t believe we need to change but ultimately our members will make those decisions.

We do continue to enjoy a harmonious relationship with the City of Joondalup.

There has been some movement at West Perth to better identify with the region. In 2006 we included the ‘Joondalup’ name on our Falcons Crest/logo.

We have been outstanding community servants and contributors in our 19 years in Joondalup.

On-field success has provided the City of Joondalup with statewide media exposure that no other sporting club in the Joondalup area could have provided.

We are strong community citizens and, with the WAFC, the Falcons provide a range of services and programs throughout the school system and our junior clubs. With players, umpires, volunteers and families the Falcons connect directly with near on 60,000 people per annum in our metro district alone.

Our pitch for funding to the Labor and Liberal parties over the past four years never included changing our name. The Government’s commitment to further develop the Arena facility had no clauses attached. The $9.5 million committed to build our clubhouse was in recognition of the work that we do in the community. The new clubhouse will be a facility that nine junior clubs have access and over 5000 participants in our sport will have access to.
