Update from the CEO

Thursday, February 29, 2024 - 3:20 PM

Dear Members and Supporters

Over the last 3 months I have been working closely with the City of Joondalup (COJ) around a sponsorship proposal. This proposal did not at any stage involve the issue of a name change to the Joondalup Falcons.

We are and always will be the West Perth Football Club.

The sponsorship proposal was approved for $30K but with an amendment from a small number of councillors that it be subject to the move to a name change to the Joondalup Falcons. Based on this amendment we have rejected the sponsorship and withdrawn the entire application.

The amendment was led by Councillor Fishwick and clearly shows that several councillors have a poor understanding of WAFL football and how it operates.  For example, why is the Perth Football Club based in East Victoria Park or the Subiaco club based in Leederville not being forced to look at name changes.

Throughout this process the  administration staff have been and still are good people to work with.

We love our home oval. We are the club of the north with feeder clubs within both the City of Wanneroo and Joondalup. We have great community connections locally however we will never forget where we  have come from. 


Your truly 

Joe McCarthy

Chief Execuitve Officer
