Player Sponsor

Rory Sloane was drafted to Adelaide in 2008 from TAC Cup side, Eastern Ranges, and has been a fan favourite ever since, winning his first Club Champion award in 2013. His second Club Champion Award, in 2016, came in a dominant year where he was also named All Australian vice-captain, AFLPA MVP runner-up, AFLCA Player of the Year runner-up, and finished fourth in the Brownlow with 24 votes. The accolades continued to come for the selfless player in 2017, when he was voted AFLPA Most Courageous Player and received an All Australian nomination. Sloane had an injury-interrupted 2018 but gave fans plenty to cheer about when he signed a new five-year deal until 2023.
