Got to catch them all at the WAFL

LOOKING for Pokemon? You might find some at your nearest WAFL club, if the players don’t get them first!
  We’re challenging footy fans to catch as many Pokemon as they can at a footy game  and  upload  a  picture  of  their

caught Pokemon on social media (Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram) using the hashtag #WAFLPokemonGo.
  The winner with the best entry will receive their very own Burley football to kick around.
