The Adelaide Football Club will join the Port Adelaide Football Club and some of cricket's biggest names to raise funds for the SA Bushfire Appeal in a special T20 cricket match at Adelaide Oval.

The Bushfire T20 Showdown will be held on Sunday, February 2 at 2:30pm with all funds raised going to those affected by the recent and ongoing bushfires in South Australia.

All tickets will be sold as general admission: adults $20, children $5 and family tickets $40.

Adelaide CEO Andrew Fagan said the thoughts of everyone in the Crows family are with those families impacted by the bushfire crisis and this event is one which every South Australian can support.

“The bushfires have been devastating for families across South Australia, and we are thinking of those on Kangaroo Island right now who continue to battle blazes which threaten their homes and livelihoods,” Fagan said.

“We hope this event can provide an opportunity for footy and cricket fans to come together as a show of support for those affected as well as raise much-needed funds to support the recovery efforts.  

“It will also provide an opportunity to recognise the CFS and other emergency service personnel who have sacrificed so much and battled bravely to protect people, property, livestock and wildlife over such a prolonged period of time”. 

Adelaide Oval, SACA, SANFL, Adelaide Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club are all teaming up for this special event.

Tickets will go on sale through Ticketek at 9am on Tuesday, January 14.
