A Grand Venue For The 20th Anniversary
THE recently refurbished Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth will be the venue for this year's Football Hall of Fame WA Induction Night on November 26.
It will be a fitting scene for the 20th Anniversary celebrations of the Football Hall of Fame, which was founded in 1996.
The lavishly-decorated Grand Ballroom, with ornate chandeliers, can hold over 500 and exudes elegance and sophistication, and an impressive new marble foyer. It is hoped to attract a bumper crowd to what promises to be a night to remember.
As befitting the occasion, the Committee of the Football Hall of Fame is working tirelessly to ensure that it will be the best induction ceremony yet.
A special call has gone out to many of the over 150 players, coaches, referees and administrators who are already members of the elite Football Hall of Fame to attend and make it a celebration extraordinaire.
There has already been encouraging support from sponsors, including the commitment by Perth-based company TMM (Traction Mining and Motor repairs) as the major backer of the event.
The centre-piece of the evening will be inductions into the Hall of Champions, the Hall of Merit for Players, the Hall of Recognition and into the Hall of Legends.
There will be several Special Guest Speakers (including Australian football icon Les Murray); a special salute to some of the great WA State teams of the past; a photo opportunity with a World Cup replica; a chance to purchase some special memorabilia; and an auction of several items, including a Socceroos shirt signed by the current World Cup squad and coach Ange Postecoglou.
And there will be a strong emphasis on the celebration of 120 years of football in WA. The game was officially founded with the establishment of a State league in 1896.
Plus there will be a salute to Perth Glory, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
There will be entertainment galore and a three-course meal with all drinks included.
