SANFL General Manager of Football Matt Duldig confirmed that each club would play a ”home” and ”away” match across the first two rounds at Adelaide Oval to allow for an even number of home games when competition can move back to suburban venues from round three.
”We’re really excited to have the first two rounds of the 2020 Statewide Super League locked away in what should be a closely contested season,” Duldig said.
“In such an extraordinary and challenging year for players, coaches, umpires, club staff and volunteers, we’re thrilled that they all have the opportunity to experience a return to competition at the world-class Adelaide Oval.
“Furthermore, as the first State League competition to kick off in Australia, we’re proud to be able to showcase the SANFL Statewide Super League and South Australia to the rest of the nation.”
Both matches in the Round 2 double-header on Saturday July 4 will be broadcast on Channel 7, with all other games to be available live and an on-demand on SANFL Digital Pass with all proceeds going back to SANFL Clubs.
Duldig said the fixture for the remaining 12 minor rounds was expected to be confirmed within the next two weeks, pending the release of the AFL fixture and broadcast schedule.
Fixtures for the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League, Reserves and U18 Torrens University Cup will be released later this week ahead of their matches commencing from the weekend of June 27-28.
