Finals fever tipped to cause buying frenzy
Finals fever tipped to cause buying frenzy

Finals fever will hit Fremantle and West Coast members tomorrow as they attempt to secure seats to their teams' elimination finals for this weekend.

Seventh placed Fremantle will play reigning premier Geelong at the MCG on Saturday night at 7.40pm EST. West Coast won the right to host a final against North Melbourne on Sunday at 1.15pm after finishing the home and away season in fifth place.

Dockers members who are planning on travelling interstate for the game can buy three tickets by logging onto ticketek.com.au or phoning 132 849 from 7am. West Coast members can only purchase one ticket each from 9am, either online or in person from Ticketmaster, or by calling 1300 135 915.

Any remaining seats will go on sale to the public tomorrow at 10am for the Fremantle game and noon for the match at Patersons Stadium

Fans have packed Patersons Stadium for finals in recent years, which has a capacity of 43,405. Under John Worsfold's coaching, an average of 43,179 people have flocked to the ground to cheer their heroes for Eagles finals.

Tickets for the West Coast game range from $48 to $85 for adults, $32.50 to $58 for concession holders, $12 to $21.50 for juniors and $99.30 to $131.30 for families. Tickets to Geelong v Fremantle will cost between $46 to $85 for adults, $31 to $58 for concession holders, $11.50 to $21.50 for juniors and $92 to $122 for families.

Family tickets cannot be purchased on the internet for either game.

With neither team finishing in the top four, Sunday's match will be the only game held in Perth throughout the entire finals series.

If Fremantle beats Geelong, the Dockers will travel to either South Australia or NSW on Friday September 14 to play the loser of Adelaide and Sydney.

West Coast's next opponent if they advance will be the loser of Hawthorn v Collingwood and will be played at the MCG on Saturday September 15.

Fremantle and West Coast are in opposite halves of the draw, so a historic derby can only happen if they reach the grand final.
