The Eagles blue-and-yellow dreadlocked beanies may stand out in the crowd but AFLstore南京夜网.au sales manager Geoff Amoore said Dockers merchandise was selling faster than that of their WA counterpart.

Mr Amoore is in charge of sales online as well as for supplying official merchandise stores throughout the country.

“It’s all Freo at the moment,” he said.

“The Eagles are very strong because of the good supporter base they have is strong but Fremantle have come from the clouds.”

Mr Amoore said this year’s merchandise sales for WA teams were split between the Dockers and Eagles 60/40. He said in past years it had been 70/30 in favour of the Eagles.

The tide turned last year as a result of the Dockers good performance when they made it to the grand final.

“The gift shop over there ran out of stock in the lead up to it,” Mr Amoore said.

He said Matthew Pavlich and Nic Natainui were the most popular players in terms of sales of products with their names or faces on.

“They are pretty hard to split but at the moment around Pavlich’s 300 games there’s been a lot of his gear sold lately,” Mr Amoore said.

While the Dockers would not provide sales figures, a spokesman for the Eagles said $2.3 million worth of team merchandise was sold in 2013 and so far this year about $1.3 million worth had been sold.

“Nic Naitanui is our most popular player with player badges, guernseys with his number on them etcetera,” the spokesman said.

The Eagles take on the Dockers in the 40th western derby at 2.40pm on Saturday at Patersons Stadium.  Follow WAtoday on Twitter
