Dockers, Eagles grand final car plates auction

1100 commemorative licence plates to be minted if local AFL team wins the flag.

EXCLUSIVE: Up to 1100 vehicle licence plates will be auctioned online to celebrate either a Fremantle Dockers or West Coast Eagles grand final victory should that magnificent eventuality play out in the first week of October.

oneperth.com.au can reveal that from the final siren at the MCG on October 3, or no later than 9am the next day, the licence plates will go on auction for four weeks should the Dockers or Eagles win the flag.

The online public auction of no more than 1100 commemorative Dockers or Eagles plates will be promoted nationwide.

If the Dockers or Eagles lose on grand final day, the auction will be canned.

If a grand final replay is required, and either WA side wins, the Department of Transport will set a new start date for the auction, and fans will have a fortnight to place their bids.

Artwork for a Dockers and an Eagles win will be completed no later than one week before the grand final. In the event of a Dockers victory, the Eagles artwork will be trashed, and vice versa.

Assuming one of the Perth-based teams wins, fans will have the ability to view all plates and their reserve price online.

The plates would be available to successful bidders about a month after the closing date of the auction.
