Female Football at South Adelaide Football Club
The 2016 Macca's Talent Shield is set to kick off on Sunday August 28, giving hundreds of girls across Adelaide the chance to represent their SANFL club.
Last year known as the SANFL Under-14 and Under-16 Girls Competition, the Macca's Talent Shield will offer females in both age groups the opportunity to take part in the four-week program which culminates in a series of Grand Finals on Sunday September 18.
The Macca's Talent Shield will again see eight non-AFL aligned SANFL clubs divided into a Northern and Southern Conference for the first three weeks which act as the minor rounds before the title-deciding finale.
Central District, North Adelaide, Norwood and the Eagles will make up the Northern Conference while Glenelg, Sturt, South Adelaide and West Adelaide will be in the Southern Conference.
Matches will again be played at official SANFL venues across metropolitan Adelaide, with the Grand Finals to be held at Peter Motley Oval and The Parade.
More than 330 teenagers took part in the inaugural competition last year, with Woodville-West Torrens winning the Under-16 flag in extra time while West Adelaide claimed honours in the Under-14 premiership race.
