The Fremantle Football Club, nicknamed The Dockers, is an Australian rules football team which plays in the Australian Football League (AFL). The club is based in the port city of Fremantle at the mouth of the Swan River in Western Australia. In 1995 it became the second team from Western Australia to be admitted to the national Australian rules football competition, honouring the rich footballing tradition and history associated with Fremantle.

Matthew Pavlich has been club captain since the beginning of the 2007 season. High profile players since the club's inception include the league's tallest ever player Aaron Sandilands, former captains Peter Bell and Shaun McManus, former number one draft pick Clive Waterhouse, winners of the AFL Rising Star award Paul Hasleby and Rhys Palmer, Luke McPharlin and Jeff Farmer.

The club is coached by former St Kilda coach Ross Lyon following the sacking of Mark Harvey at the end of the 2011 AFL home and away season.
