Fremantle Oval is located in the heart of the Fremantle CBD, has been a centrepiece of the fabric of sport in the Port City since 1900.
Fremantle Oval is home to South Fremantle Football Club, who shares its grounds with the Fremantle Dockers.
With an impressive gymnasium, change rooms (including sauna) and medical rooms and function areas, Fremantle Oval is of the best facilities in the WAFL competition.
Fremantle Oval's record crowd was 23,109 during the 1979 WAFL - South Fremantle v East Fremantle.
With an enviable location, Fremantle Oval has played home to the South Fremantle, and more recently, the Fremantle Football Clubs, since 1900 and 1995 respectfully. With a capacity of 17,500 and terracing surrounding the ground, the venue has an atmosphere that is envied around the WAFL Competition.
Fremantle Oval combines the new with the old and the plain old weird. As a result of realigning the ground in 2001, the field has now been shortened and the car park extended. In front of the car park, the historic 'old' grandstand as it's known, dominates the north eastern wing of the ground.
The Fremantle Football Club also call the ground home and has some of the finest facilities in the land since they constructed their headquarters at the southern end of the ground, which were completed in 2000.
The South Fremantle Members Area holds approximately 750 people. While terracing surrounds the rest of the ground with vegetation covering the northern extremities of the embankment.
In 2004, new facilities came into affect which included the opening of the George Grljusich Media Box and the upgrading of the existing lighting system, in turn allowing for a higher quality lighting system to raise the standard of night football at the ground for both spectators and players.
While other grounds have remained stagnant in the development of facilities, Fremantle Oval has continued to transform throughout history, with epic encounters between South and East Fremantle, while the Dockers have also played many a scratch match at the ground.
Fremantle Oval in many ways is the very essence of the Fremantle History, it has grown as the city has grown and today is an enviable venue with a magnitude of charm, but with the facilities to match.
