140 Year Heritage Guernsey - Celebrate History in Style!

140 Year Heritage Guernsey - Celebrate History in Style!

To celebrate the significance of our 140 Year Jubilee we will be wearing a commemorative "140 Year Heritage Guernsey" when we take the field against Port Adelaide Magpies on June 18 at Hickinbotham Oval.

The jumper features the names of each player to pull on a South Adelaide guernsey since 1876. Thanks to the tireless work of the SAFC Heritage Committee, who trawled through 140 years worth of annual reports to compile the list of players, 1750 players have been acknowledged for their contribution to our Club.

Game worn guernseys will be up for auction at the Blue & White Ball in the Peter Darley Room following the clash against Port Adelaide, while replica jumpers are available for purchase from the club - full details below.

The South Adelaide Football Club traces its origins back to the year 1876; our formation led by the infamous Charles Cameron Kingston.

In the 140 years that have followed our Club's foundation the South Adelaide Football Club has written a history steeped in tradition.

11 SANFL Premierships, seven Magarey Medallists, countless Champions and endless Legends fill the annals of South Adelaide.

All of those tales share one thing in common - the famous blue and white guernsey we wear into battle week in and week out.

Pioneers such as Kingston, Dan Moriarty and David Kantilla have all donned that famous blue and white jumper, as have legends such as Jim Deane, Peter Darley and Mark Naley, while the stories of modern stars such as Nick Liddle, Joel Cross and Brad Crabb are currently being etched into the folklore of Panthers history.

Don't miss out on your chance to celebrate history in style.
