Design the 2016 Falcons Playing Jumper: 2016 International Football Festival

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 - 3:17 PM

This is your chance to design the West Perth Football Club’s 2016 Falcons International Round Jumper!

Our unique “International Round” was created to recognise and celebrate the huge multicultural population that live and work in Perth’s northern corridor. Did you know that within the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo, more than 41% of the population are born overseas – the Australian average is half that. Most of the local population are new residents with more than 10% having migrated to the area within the last five years.

As West Perth take on Subiaco in the 2016 WAFL season, the Falcons aim to engage with our local communities and celebrate our cultural diversity through a unique match day jumper that represents our community.

Previous Jumper Designs


In 2012, the Falcons’ international round jumper was heavily British influenced, with the Union Jack featured on the front and integrated with the Falcons logo.



In 2013 and 2014, the jumper was multi-cultural based and celebrated a world theme.




In 2015, in a first for the WAFL and Australian Rules Football, the Falcons donned a jumper with sleeves, replicating what our international community associates with – Soccer and Rugby.


Please find below guidelines for our Design a Jumper Competition.

International Football Festival: back in 2016

Tuesday, February 9, 2016 - 1:27 PM

The Falcons Football District has a rapidly growing population with the fastest growing migrant and multicultural demographic in the state. Australian Rules Football is continually being embraced by these new populations. In celebration, the Falcons District will host an International Football Festival on the 2nd of April at HBF Arena, as the West Perth Football Club take on the Subiaco Football Club in a 2015 WAFL grand final re-match.

West Perth Football Club's league team will play in a special one-off themed Jumper in Round 3 to embrace its international community and build on the success of this event in 2014 and 2015.

After the success of International Round in 2015, with more than 7,800 people attending, the club hopes for even more community involvement in 2016 and an attendance figure of over 8,000.

In 2015, in a first for the WAFL and Australian Rules Football, the Falcons donned a jumper with sleeves to pay homage to our community’s association with other football codes. Expect a unique jumper this year to follow this tradition.

The Nicky Winmar Carnival is played in a round robin format over one day. Competing teams are based on WAFL metro and regional zones. All teams are coached by Aboriginal coaches.
