RAC has joined forces with the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers to promote road safety
In 2019 RAC began the partnership with the Fremantle Dockers and the West Coast Eagles and speak with fans at the RAC Derby about road safety. In 2020 RAC was proud to continue this partnership to become the inaugural sponsor of WA's first Women's Derby.
After difficult recent months for West Australians RAC is pleased to announce to the WA football community that the next RAC Derby is set to take place on Sunday 19 July 2020 at Optus Stadium.
As our regional areas have re-opened to visitors and as some restrictions have been relaxed, many WA drivers are getting back behind the wheel for longer periods, so it’s never been more important to re-focus our attention on driving safely. Participating in this significant sporting event in WA will provide RAC with a great platform to start a conversation with football fans and their families about the impact of road trauma across our state.
The continued partnership with the Fremantle Dockers and the West Coast Eagles will also allow RAC to deliver more benefits, experiences and memories for our members and the wider Western Australian community.
“The Fremantle Football Club is ecstatic to welcome fans back to Optus stadium for our first game in WA for season 2020. We are especially excited that it will be for an RAC Derby against the Eagles.
The unwavering support we have received from RAC through this extremely challenging period is not lost on us and we look forward to using our partnership to support the critical work they do promoting road safety in WA.
As restrictions continue to ease, we encourage all our members, fans and stakeholders to be vigilant when behind the wheel and ensure the roads are safe for everyone.”
