Adelaide’s trip to Port Lincoln next week will be headlined by a trial match at Centenary Oval where local supporters can see their heroes in action.

The Crows will spend two days engaging with the community, as part of the AFL’s 2024 Community Camps program on Thursday, February 15 and Friday, February 16.

To kick off the camp on Thursday, players will conduct clinics and deliver the Adelaide Crows Foundation’s popular STEMfooty program in local schools.

Children aged 5-15 years will also have the opportunity to participate in the Crows Community Football Clinic led by the Club’s community team at Centenary Oval on Thursday at 4pm. Participants must register to attend and can sign up here.

Following the clinic, Crows fans will get the chance to see the AFL side train, with an Open Training Session to be held at the ground at 5pm.

Players will be available for photos and autographs after training. 

The squad will then return to Centenary Oval to play its annual internal trial match on Friday (February 16) at 4.30pm. 

Other activities across the two days include an AFL player signing session at Peter Kittle Toyota from 10-11am on Friday morning and a Female Football Clinic at Port Lincoln High School Oval at 3.30pm that afternoon.

Participants must register for the Female Football Clinic and can sign up here.

Crows AFLW players will visit Mallee Park Football Club’s women’s training on Thursday afternoon and a community barbeque supplied by the Port Lincoln Aboriginal Health Service will be held post training at 6pm.

Crows CEO Tim Silvers said players and staff were excited about the opportunity to give back to the Eyre Peninsula community.

“Country members and fans are a big part of our Club and we’re excited to get to Port Lincoln and see some of them,” Silvers said.

“There are a lot are a lot of passionate Crows fans in the region and none more so than those who are involved in the Eyre Peninsula Supporter’s Group which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

“Their commitment and dedication in travelling to Adelaide for our games is huge, so this time it’s great for us to be able to visit them on their home turf.

Across the two days we’re hosting a range of events for the community, including our first proper internal trial game of the pre-season, so we encourage everyone to come and see the players in action.

The Crows would like to thank the Lower Eyre Peninsula Council and the AFL for their generous financial support of the 2024 Community Camp.
