Adelaide will not leave South Australia this pre-season after the AFL announced an updated Community Series fixture on Wednesday which will see all teams play one match in their home state.
Originally scheduled against Fremantle in Western Australia, the Crows will now face Port Adelaide for a second consecutive week with the crosstown rivals heading to Noarlunga Oval on Sunday, March 7.

The AFL said the decision to revise the fixture was made to minimise risk by avoiding travel for the men’s programs prior to the home-and-away season.
The game will be broadcast live on FOX Footy, Kayo and through the Official AFL LIVE App. Ticketing arrangements will be advised in due course.
The Crows and Power will clash this Saturday in a pre-season double-header at Alberton Oval, with a SANFL practice match starting at 8.30am ACDT followed by an AFL practice match from 11am ACDT.
