Curtain raiser agains port in round one before afl showdown

Both SANFL Showdowns are curtain raisers before AFL Showdowns.

Sturt and Centrals will also play our SANFL side as curtain raisers before AFL games.

With North playing their 2nd match against us in Whyalla, it seems that clubs are increasingly happy to offload the 2nd home game against our SANFL side elsewhere. If our new home will have a space for AFLW matches, I wouldn't be surprised if we end up hosting SANFL matches there too.

You'd think Port Power would be able to play curtain raisers at Adelaide before their games as well, but elect not to.

The pokie money, catering money etc from Alberton too good to pass up.

Feels inevitable we will get SANFL home games when we have our new home base. I'd like to see a 50/50 split between games at our new base and curtain raisers at Adelaide Oval.

The cost of opening up Adelaide Oval is expensive which might be there reason. Obviously the SMA cut back bars and food stalls until the main game but just the gate and event staff costs a heap of money.

I think you might be right though, about 50/50 seems right. It's just unfortunate the early game has to be finished so long before the main game.

Our games are some of the least profitable home matches for the SANFL clubs. This season we have 3/8 clubs giving up their second home match against us for an alternate location (North in Whyalla, Sturt and Centrals at Adelaide Oval).

That, and the fact that by the time we get our new facility there will be less of an outcry for us having home games, will almost certainly see us hosting home games down the track.

AFL 2022: How SANFL top-up players could work for Crows and Power amid Covid outbreak​

The SANFL will work with the AFL on a Covid-induced top-up plan for Adelaide and Port. But the state league’s different rules compared to Victoria could hurt both clubs.

Preliminary discussions have started and the talks are set to continue over the next few weeks with the South Australian situation set to be a tricky one for the AFL.

Club sources believe the most likely situation will be that clubs have to use their state-listed players, who aren’t on their AFL list, as top-up players in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak.

But SANFL rules limit who the Crows and Port can have in their state league programs, compared to their interstate rivals.

While Victorian clubs are able to add an ex-AFL player to their VFL lists, Adelaide and Port Adelaide can only contract a delisted AFL player that has not played AFL or state league football for the past 12 months.

This used to be 24 months before the rule was relaxed late last year.

Players who have played at least 10 years for either Adelaide or Port Adelaide can be added to the SANFL lists at each club.

Port Adelaide has Cam Sutcliffe, 29, and John Butcher, 30, as the only players in the Magpies program who have played AFL football – Luke Surman was on Hawthorn’s list.

Least profitable home matches for the SANFL clubs but (unless they actually lose money having our games at their grounds), they'd still make money they otherwise wouldn't, wouldn't they? Maybe they can get more money from country location games.

As for letting us have games at our own ground, those clubs may not get anything.

Except our games aren’t profitable. Some clubs don’t even bother with things like pre-game Presidents lunches for our games because it’s not worth it financially

Geez... if they're making a loss that's likely to improve our chances of getting home games at our own home ground (assuming we're not in some AFL reserves comp).

I've wished for years that we would have rookied him. Good luck to Jack. Too good for SANFL

Are you saying crowds are lower with our games than between two sanfl teams?
