Celebrating the 2018 AFL Grand Final West Coast Win in Langley Park
After an incredible win down in Melbourne at the 2018 AFL Grand Final, the West Coast Eagles returned home to Perth and were met with a welcome reserved for legends. Held at Langley Park, crowds of excited West Coast Eagles fans celebrated and bonded over an amazing win that saw them defeat Collingwood 79-74. One of the most unpredictable matches of AFL history, the West Coast Eagles came out victorious.
Fans began to head over to Langley Park hours before the celebratory ceremony was set to begin at 2.30pm. By the time the premiership heroes arrived, crowds were heavy at around 40,000. Players took to the stage to ecstatic applause and cheers from dedicated supporters, soaking in the praise and admiration of the city they’d done proud.
After thanking fans and snapping a selfie with the crowd – complete with the stunning Perth cityscape as a backdrop – the fun continued with food and drink, activities and entertainment for punters of all ages.
