Adelaide AFLW captain Chelsea Randall says the Club is honoured to be teaming up with other prominent South Australian sporting organisations for a new campaign, The Power of Her.

The Power of Her, driven by the South Australian Office for Recreation, Sport, and Racing, brings together the state’s six female national sporting teams – Adelaide Crows, Adelaide Lightning, Port Adelaide, Adelaide Strikers, Adelaide Thunderbirds and Adelaide United.

The Crows, along with the five other clubs, have made a commitment to help drive crowds and support each other through a number of promotions.

Speaking to the media at The Power of Her launch on Monday, Randall urged Crows fans to get on board "and enjoy the ride”, which is women’s sport in South Australia. 

“When women support women, powerful things happen, we know the product we put out on show, whether it be basketball, netball, cricket, soccer or AFL, we put our heart and soul into it,” Randall said. 

“We want our fans to come on board and enjoy that ride. 

“On the weekend in Melbourne I had a gentleman come up to me and say to me ‘that was my first AFLW game and I absolutely loved it’.

“We know that when these fans take the opportunity to actually come to a game they never look back, they love it and they are here to stay, so we need to keep building that and it's why we will continue to support other women in sport.”

Randall was joined by players from each of the other five clubs on Monday afternoon, who all showed their commitment to growing the other sports at the official launch. 

She said it was a thrill to team up with the group of talented athletes, and was passionate about promoting the other sports.

“We’ve been trying to fight for our own sport and trying to fight for that respect, to be seen and heard.

“The support and respect you have for one another as female athletes goes back a long way because we all understand that we’ve been in a similar boat,” Randall said.

“We’ve been trying to fight for our own sport and trying to fight for that respect, to be seen and heard, all we ever wanted was to be part of a conversation.

“I’ve been a massive supporter of women supporting women, the last couple of years I’ve been having conversations with our membership group to ensure we are sending tickets out to our amazing athletes from other sports so they can come out to our games.

“This Power of Her is an amazing initiative that helps further that support, and I’m honoured that we are part of it.”

As part of The Power of Her campaign, Crows AFLW Members will receive a complimentary ticket to Adelaide United’s clash with Canberra United at Hindmarsh Stadium this Sunday.

Adelaide Crows 2023 AFLW members can unlock their complimentary ticket by entering their membership barcode as a password.

Members will soon receive more information on how to access their ticket.

“(To those sitting on the fence) I would say jump off the fence and make a commitment to come out and turn up to one of the games,” Randall said.

“We’ve got Adelaide United playing their first game this weekend and a bunch of our girls will be there.

"We're playing on Friday night, the Lightning starting soon, the Strikers coming in December and how amazing were our Thunderbirds this year winning the premiership.

“A lot is happening for women’s sport in South Australia and there has never been a better time to get on board.”

The Crows will provide a two-for-one AFLW membership offer and will be encouraging members and fans to attend their match against North Melbourne at Unley Oval on Sunday, October 29.
