Perth Glory Football Club is an Australian professional soccer club based in Perth, Western Australia.
The Perth Glory story began on October 13, 1996 at Perth Oval (now nib Stadium). Despite a 4-1 loss to UTS Olympic, Perth Glory captured the hearts of Football lovers and their introduction into the NSL immediately brought a new professionalism.
The charismatic Bernd Stange took the reigns as coach in 1998 and the former East German national boss immediately made his mark. In a stunning season, Perth Glory played finals football for the first time, sold-out 25,000 capacity WACA ground and became the hottest ticket in town. The club fell one match short of reaching the Grand Final but the benchmark had been set and from that point on Perth Glory featured prominently in the finals each season.
Perth hosted the Grand Final in June 2000 and set a record domestic football crowd of 43,242 at Subiaco Oval. Despite going down on the day in a dramatic penalty shoot-out to Wollongong, the Perth Glory brand continued to make inroads into non-traditional football households throughout WA.
The club would play in another Grand Final at Subiaco Oval in the 2001/02 season and again Perth Glory fell just short, this time 1-nil to Sydney Olympic.
The wait for Championship success was finally over in 2002/03 when Perth was crowned the nation’s best in an emphatic 2-nil victory against their 2002 nemesis in front of another packed house at Subiaco Oval.
A dynasty followed and Perth Glory established themselves as Australia’s most powerful club with back-to-back championships, a golden goal from Nik Mrdja sealing the 1-nil win away to Parramatta Power in the 2004 Grand Final.
That game was to be the last in the National Soccer League but in just eight seasons Perth featured in the finals six times, played in four grand finals, won two championships, and was crowned premiers (top of the table after regular season matches) three times.
A new era in Australian football began with the formation of the Hyundai A-League in August 2005. Despite still being in its infancy the new competition has captured a large portion of the Australian sporting marketplace as Australian’s embrace the world’s biggest game.
The popularity of football at a grass roots level around the country is unsurpassed and in Western Australia there are about 40,000 registered junior participants.
Tony Sage is sole owner of Perth Glory after completing a buy-out of partner Mr Brett McKeon in February 2008. In a short space of time, Mr Sage has enthusiastically set about reinvigorating one of the country’s most successful sporting franchises.
The arrival of English Premier League legend Robbie Fowler in 2010 was a master stroke by the Chairman as the man famously known as ‘God’ was a box-office hit with record crowds watching Fowler in action.
Perth Glory Football Club re-established itself as one of the Hyundai A-League’s power clubs with a recording breaking 2012 season.
Celebrating the club’s 15 year anniversary, Perth Glory won three sudden death Finals games before a heart-breaking 2-1 Grand Final loss to Brisbane Roar. In front of more than 50,000 fans at a packed Suncorp Stadium, Perth Glory led 1-nil until the 84th minute before a dramatic and controversial finish.
Off the field Perth Glory is committed to a strong community programs that reach more than 20,000 children each year.
The Perth Lynx are an Australian women's professional basketball team in the Women's National Basketball League (WNBL).

The Perth Wildcats Basketball Team has been inspiring and entertaining West Australians for more than three decades.
Since 2007, the Perth Wildcats have been owned by local philanthropist Dr Jack Bendat who took over from Andrew Vlahov.
Dr Bendat directed the club to extend its community initiatives across schools, hospitals and regional areas with the club visiting over 250 schools each year.
That serves to educate children not only on the basketball court, but also in areas such as healthy lifestyle and anti-bullying. Dr Bendat’s personal goal is to have a greater number of kids bouncing basketballs and enjoying the sport.
The Perth Wildcats continue to inspire and entertain West Australians both off the court and on it, and now do so in front of their biggest crowds in their 30 year history.
The passion of the fans, the spirit of Western Australia and the performances of Wildcats heroes throughout history continue to drive the excellence of the club.
This spirit and heritage has firmly placed the Perth Wildcats as the most successful team in NBL history and in the hearts of all West Australians.

The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) is the caretaker of football throughout the State and is responsible for the overall development of the game.
- Local Clubs:Social Club
The WAFC’s role includes ownership of the State’s two AFL teams – the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Football Club, guiding the West Australian Football League (WAFL), overseeing community football, managing umpiring, and driving participation through game development and the talent pathway.
The WAFC is a not for profit sports association. It is incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act and governed by a voluntary Board of Commissioners that oversees the operation of all football activities throughout the State. The WAFC features more than 100 employees spread across the State.
The WAFC plays an important role in funding the ongoing development of football via our affiliates, schools, competitions and academies across all WA communities. This ensures that football is the best resourced sporting code in the State and can have the most active role in building better communities through various development programs.
The rich history of football in the community of Western Australia stretches back to 1885. Today it is the most popular sporting code in the state with 105,000 club participants, of which from Auskick to Seniors, 7% identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
This results in a significant social benefit and the creation of better communities through the active promotion of the sport and its associated values of teamwork, responsibility, respect, leadership, commitment and community participation.
While many of these benefits have long been the result of our activities, the West Australian Football Commission has both harnessed and harvested those activities delivering these benefits, and used the understanding to develop the most comprehensive community benefits programs in Australia.
The WAFC runs and supports:
- The WAFL competition
- The WAFL Colts competition and supporting talent pathway
- State talent academies for males and females
- The umpiring talent pathway
- School competitions and the AFL School Ambassador program
- Multicultural engagement programs
- Indigenous engagement programs including the Nicky Winmar and Kirby Bentley carnivals
- Auskick, junior and youth football
- All community competitions through our affiliated leagues
- Tribunals, governance and integrity programs
- Community facility funding
- Coaching, umpiring and volunteer accreditation and development

West Coast Fever is Western Australia’s representative in the world’s premier women’s sporting competition, Suncorp Super Netball.
Comprising four International representatives, as well as five West Australian born athletes, Fever is not only a competitive force in netball’s new era, but a true indication of the pathway to the elite level for athletes right across the state. Established in 2008, the Club possesses a rich history throughout its time at the very highest level of Australian domestic netball, including a maiden finals appearance during the 2015 season.
Current Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich became the first woman to both captain and coach the same team when she assumed the top job in 2015 and, as she prepares to enter her fourth season as Head Coach, continues to serve as a link between the Club’s proud past and its future of endless potential. Fever are strongly positioned to stamp their authority on the second season of Suncorp Super Netball, as the Club looks to write the next exciting chapter in WA’s sporting story.

The WACA is a sports stadium in Perth, Western Australia. WACA are the initials of its owners and operators, the Western Australian Cricket Association.
The WACA ground has been the "home" of cricket in Western Australia since the early 1890s. The first Test match was played at the ground in 1970. The WACA is the home ground of Western Australia's first-class cricket team, the Western Warriors and the local KFC Twenty20 Big Bash franchise, the Perth Scorchers. The women's cricket team known as the Western Fury plays in the Women's National Cricket League.
The pitch at the WACA was regarded as one of the quickest and bounciest in the world. These characteristics, in combination with the afternoon sea-breezes which regularly pass the ground (the Fremantle Doctor), have historically made the ground an attractive place for pace and swing bowlers. The ground has seen some very fast scoring – as at January 2012, four of the seven fastest Test centuries had been scored at the WACA.
Throughout its history, the ground has also been used for a range of other sports, including athletics carnivals, Australian rules football, baseball, soccer, rugby league, rugby union, international rules football. However, recent years have seen most of these activities relocated to other venues. It has also been used for major rock concerts.
