SANFL Statewide Super League Finals Series Confirmed

SANFL has announced the 2020 SANFL Statewide Super League Grand Final will be played on Sunday, October 18 with a crowd of up to 25,000.

SANFL also confirmed all major round matches in the three-week Statewide Super League Finals Series will be played at Adelaide Oval.

A Semi-Finals double header will be held on Sunday, October 4, followed by the Preliminary Final on Sunday, October 11, with up to 25,000 spectators permitted each match day.

With two minor rounds remaining, the race is still on for the coveted top two positions on the ladder and a double chance, with the Eagles already securing one spot and North Adelaide needing to win one of its final two matches.

The race for third and fourth positions also remains wide open, with Norwood currently sitting just out of the four but only one win behind South Adelaide and Glenelg.

SANFL General Manager Football Matt Duldig said it would be a great reward for the top four clubs and their players and supporters to have SANFL football back at Adelaide Oval with big crowds for finals.

“It’s a tradition to have the Statewide Super League Finals Series at South Australia’s home of footy, and now with certainty around availability, we’re thrilled to be back at Adelaide Oval in October,” he said.

Tickets for the Finals Series will be on sale via Ticketek from next week with an SA Health requirement for all ticketing to be electronic and all tickets to be pre-purchased online due to the need for contact tracing. Further details of on-sale dates will be available via the SANFL website.

Tickets will be $16 for adults, $11 concession for weeks 1 and 2 Finals; $27 adults, $22 concession for the Grand Final*. Under 18s entry is free.

Social distancing will continue to apply for all spectators at Adelaide Oval, with one vacant seat space between all issued tickets.

All finals will be televised live and free on Channel 7 and 7plus, with live radio broadcasts on SEN SA.

Every finals match, including Reserves and U18s Torrens University Cup, also will be available live and on demand on SANFL Digital Pass.

While fixtures for Reserves and Torrens University Cup are still to be finalised, the Reserves preliminary and grand finals will be played at Adelaide Oval as curtain raisers to the League, while all Torrens University Cup finals will be played at Thebarton Oval.
