Earlier this year we received a phone call from Adrian Lacquiere, who is the Strategic Projects Manager for the Fremantle Football Club.
The club was looking for temporary storage for their equipment while their new stadium was being built in Cockburn.
They wanted something sturdy and secure, and we agreed that a shipping container from Sea Containers WA was the best way moving forward.
The new Dockers stadium, which is planned for completion early in 2018, will also house a state-of-the-art training center and become a recognized brand associated with world-class recreation and aquatic amenities. The new venue, in partnership with the Dockers and Curtin University, will include an arena with several indoor and outdoor pools, a water playground, six basketball courts and state of the art gym facilities.
Our Managing Director, Kevin Cooper, is an avid Dockers supporter, so was very keen to help out where we could.
Without the club knowing, we organized for the container to be resprayed and stickered up in the Dockers colours.
We organized for delivery to site, much to the surprise of Adrian, who was only expecting a standard container to be delivered, certainly not the wonderfully painted container we had organized.
Sea Containers WA loves to help out local community and sporting groups, and is proud to be supporting the Fremantle Dockers.
