East Perth Forever and Office Closure

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 - 4:30 PM

We are currently living in extraordinarily difficult times. Life as we knew it has changed and we continue to face greater uncertainty in all aspects of our lives. Football is not immune to this.

The club is working tirelessly to ensure the East Perth Football Club survives this current situation. The Royals and the WAFL have been a constant in all our lives and it is our duty to ensure that the club and competition remains for all of us as well as future generations.

The club is taking the community focused approach and attitude to the COVID-19 crisis. As such, our office will be closed to all non-critical public access until further notice.

We are unable to give much detail around the 2020 season. All we know is that it will look very different from any other season we have had before. The support from our Members and Sponsors has been overwhelming and for that, the club cannot thank you enough.

We are doing everything in our power to ensure that when the season does start, we will be ready. What is helping us get through, day to day, is the thought of that first goal, the sound of the ‘East Perth’ chant ringing in the grandstand and all Royals triumphantly and proudly singing ‘East Perth Forever’ once again.

At this critical time in our history, the words ‘East Perth Forever’ have never been more significant. We cannot, and will not, let our great club and competition fade into history.

We are calling all our Members and Supporters to arms. Whilst we cannot come together to watch and support our Mighty Royals, we can wear our colours proudly, reminisce and look forward to being together at Leederville once again.

With this, we encourage you all to wear our 2020 merchandise as a badge of honour. Your contribution to the club by wearing your 2020 merchandise is a stand of defiance and unity against the situation which is currently driving us apart.

As a small token of the club’s gratitude, all merchandise and membership orders received from today will also include a special ‘East Perth Forever’ badge. We want you to display this proudly at our first game back.

Our communication systems remain active, and all merchandise and membership requests will be met in the usual prompt and professional manner, as per our customer service standards. All membership and merchandise purchases to support the club can be made online through this site

Our players and football staff are currently unable to come into the club. This is a competition wide rule. The players have been given individual programs to complete. We are building protocols and process around safety at training and in the gym for when they can come back into the club.

Thank you for your understanding during this time and please look after yourselves and loved ones. We look forward, with great anticipation, to watching our famous black and blue running around again with you all in the near future.

May we remain Royal today, yesterday and tomorrow
