RAC has joined forces with the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers
In 2019 RAC began the partnership with the Fremantle Dockers and the West Coast Eagles as the naming rights sponsor of the AFL RAC Derby. In 2020 RAC was proud to continue this partnership to become the inaugural sponsor of WA's first Women's Derby.
By supporting this significant West Australian sporting event it provides RAC with a great platform to start a conversation with football fans and their families about the impact of road trauma across our state to help reduce the unacceptable number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
The next AFL RAC Derby will be held on Saturday 14 August. Head to Optus stadium early to check out the RAC Rescue Experience located near Matagarup Bridge.
To celebrate the RAC Derby we’re giving two RAC members the opportunity to win* a premium hospitality package for them and three friends. Check out our Facebook page for more information. Competition closes Monday 2 August 11:59pm.
This year the AFLW RAC Derby was held on Sunday 7 February, the same week we saw the Wooroloo bushfires destroy more than 80 homes. In response, rival football clubs Fremantle and West Coast Eagles united to help us raise some much needed funds for those impacted.
We contributed $500 for every mark taken and $2000 for every goal kicked, with $28,500 being raised throughout the match. As a show of extra support, we topped this up to $100,000 and contributed the amount to the Lord Mayor's Distress Relief Fund.
