It’s not like we have our own Federation Square here in Adelaide. But we do have plenty of beautiful open spaces that we can put screens into. Because what’s better than moving the television into the back yard on special occasions.
But why not go one better this year and and head to Botanic Park for a day long AFL extravaganza full of fans, footy, food and a fantastic concert to end a spectacular day of celebrating the biggest sporting Saturday afternoon on the Aussie calendar.
The lords and ladies at AFL HQ have official sanctioned the public broadcast of Channel Seven’s live coverage on huge LED super screens throughout Botanic Park with full HQ Stadium Sound. The action kicks off at midday with pre-match entertainment and hospitality from a variety of food and drink stalls and bars. Fun rides for the kids, official merchandise including the 2016 Toyota AFL Grand Final Record on sale, AFL player skill classes, longest kick and best ‘speckie’ competitions plus the chance to mix with past and present AFL champions. 2016 TOYOTA AFL GRAND FINAL LIVE will be the ultimate place in Adelaide to be to watch all the excitement this October 1.
To cap off an amazing day, once the last siren has sounded the party continues with the ultimate Aussie Rock concert featuring Jimmy Barnes, The Angels, Jon Stevens plus more bands to be announced.
While we’re still waiting to see who will play Hawthorn in the GF (yeah, we’re calling that early), if it does happen to be the Crows (let’s be honest, Port have a lot of work to do this year), this just might be the best (and family friendly) atmosphere in Adelaide going around. So lock it into your diaries.
