South Adelaide joins 2018 Statewide Super Women's League

South Adelaide is proud to confirm the club will have a women's team compete in the 2018 Statewide Super Women's League.

Following the success of the inaugural season, SANFL has announced that the competition will expand to six teams for season 2018.

South Adelaide will join 2017 competitors Norwood, North Adelaide, West Adelaide and Glenelg while the remaining clubs (Woodville-West Torrens, Sturt and Central District) will be invited to make a submission for the remaining license.

"At South Adelaide we are proud to add a senior women's team to our successful female football programs," said South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer Neill Sharpe.

"The support and enthusiasm from within our junior girls talent pathway over the past two seasons has been fantastic, culminating in our Under-16s winning the 2016 Premiership in their second Grand Final appearance in as many years.

"We are delighted to extend our female programs to the senior ranks and now offer the many talented female footballers in the southern suburbs a clear pathway to pursue a career at the highest level."

With the growth in teams, the new season will be extended from six to 10 minor round games, with each club to play the others twice, plus a two-week finals series.

While the fixture is yet to be determined, the season will commence in early February and will conclude with a Grand Final on or around Anzac Day.

SANFL General Manager Football Adam Kelly said the expansion of the competition was great news for women wanting to play the game.

"SANFL is committed to growing football for females in South Australia and providing even more development opportunities for those aspiring to the elite AFLW level," Kelly said.

"2017 was an outstanding success and was reflective of the enormous growth in females playing the game across all levels of the game. The decision to expand to six teams with a longer season represents an important evolution for the competition and provides two more of our clubs with the desired opportunity to field women's teams.

"We are very pleased to be in the position to be able to extend the competition and grateful to Statewide Super for their continued support which has been instrumental in supporting the growing of the game for women in our State."
