Grab the family for a big day out at the SANFL Carnival this Sunday 18 August at Woodville Oval, Oval Ave, Woodville South.
Say G’day to our own 1079 Life Roadies and have fun with plenty of things to do. See if you can spot the Roadies and the 1079 Life ute in this Carnival preview from Seven News.
As many as 81 SANFL Juniors teams from 27 clubs will participate in 124 matches before the Round 16 Statewide Super League clash between Woodville-West Torrens and Adelaide kicks off at 2.10pm.
Boys and girls, from Minis (Under 7) through to Under-10, will have the chance to play in Lightning Carnival format from 8.25am at the home of the Eagles, with a host of other activities planned for the day which attracted a crowd of 5357 in 2018.
Three more teams will join in the fun compared with last season’s event, while a jumping castle, face painting and a free treasure hunt will ensure all children are entertained.
Country clubs in the Eagles’ regional zone will make the journey down for the second year in succession, with Mintaro-Manoora, Long Plains and Mallala all suiting up.
SANFL Juniors teams from as far field as Mount Lofty, Blackwood, Brighton, Tea Tree Gully and Salisbury West will also lace up the boots.
A Pre-Game Parade will be conducted, with children also invited to participate in giving the Eagles and Crows teams a Guard of Honour as they run on to Maughan Thiem Kia Oval.
Proudly supported by the City of Charles Sturt, the Carnival has become a popular annual event since 2010, attracting the involvement of other sporting and community groups in the Woodville-West Torrens region.
The Statewide Super League match will be broadcast on 1079 Life with the contest also telecast on SANFL Digital Pass.
