Moving the date of the Western Derby match between WCE and Freo to the "WA day" public holiday Monday (1st Monday of June) would give an AFL mad state something to get out and cheer about on its day off. 

It would build into an annual tradition where the state stops to watch the game between the two WA teams because, its a holiday to celebrate WA and what better way to spend it than cheering for your team!

The game would sell out, and areas relatively close to the stadium which are currently utilized for WA day events would benefit greatly from the foot traffic pre/post game. Heaps of people would build their whole WA day around it.

WA tourism would benefit hugely from national images of lively events around the stadium and fireworks in the evening, broadcast as a backdrop to the game. 

Game could be timed to start in line for east coast TV viewers (say 5pm Perth time). there is no other AFL on that day, so a captive audience for all AFL fans Aust wide watching Ptown go off on its day off!

WIN WIN WIN! C'mon decision makers- give all of WA something to really look forward to, something to plan their WA day holiday around, something that will bring a state out into the streets to watch and cheer and celebrate.
