AFLW Derby clash between West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Footballs exempt from vaccination obligations

The AFLW Western Derby clash at Fremantle Oval was exempt from the state government’s new vaccination entry obligations for major events for 11 hours.

More than 5,000 spectators gathered on the ground Saturday night as Fremantle collided with the West Coast during the opening round of the 2022 AFLW season.

On Monday, the newly appointed Health Minister, Amber Jade Sanderson, announced that major events attending more than 500 people require vaccination certification.

But a Saturday night state government spokesman said the AFLW clash was not subject to the rules.

“The match did not require vaccination proof, based on advice from the Supreme Health Officer,” said a spokesman.
