Perth Cats – WCE vs Geelong Cats ticketing and pre-game function info


Hi Cats Fans,
First off, it was sad to hear about the passing on the weekend of 1963 Geelong Premiership Player and West Australian legend John K Watts, after a long illness. He was 80. A Bayswater native, Watts won flags with his beloved East Perth in the WAFL before playing for the Cats over a three year period which included the 1963 flag. He was well known for penning our club song which has been sung many a time in the past 10 years and more so in the wider WA community for his colourful post-playing career in the Perth media and beyond.

He was also a regular and very welcome guest of the Perth Cats at Pre-Game Functions over the years; last appearing in 2012 before our Round 1 game against the Dockers.

We of course have a bye this round, following our huge win over the Crows; but just a quick note on next Thursday with the Cats in town to play the Eagles at Subiaco Oval.

We have a couple of tickets left should you still require 1 or 2, but they will go very quickly. If you wish to attend or get more with your allocation, then please contact Peter Proposch  0416 130 651 or Tickets will have to be picked up from our pre-game function before the game.


We’ll again be gathering downstairs at The Irish Club in Subiaco from 4pm for our pre-game function next Thursday. The Irish Club is on Townshend Road and a Tom Hawkins’ drop punt away from Subi oval; so on come down and fire up for the big game with some fellow Cats.

There’ll be a bar, some simple pub food and a raffle with some great prizes, including block-mounted posters, signed merch and other goodies. You’ll also have a chance to buy a ticket in our end of season raffle which again is a framed 2017 guernsey, signed by the entire squad.

At this stage we’re waiting to see if we’re able to have a guest along, as the time constraints and being a working/school day make it difficult; but it’s a FREE event regardless and always a great start to a match. Stay tuned – there’s more to come next week.
