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 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.
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.
