The SANFL’s 2022 Think Road Safety SA Country Football Championships will be held in Whyalla for the first time.
The two day carnival will be hosted by the City of Whyalla across the weekend of July 16th and 17th and held at Bennett Oval and the nearby Memorial Oval.
500 players, umpires and volunteers are expected to head to the city, as well as thousands of spectators.
In a statement, SANFL’s Matt Duldig said the championships are a significant event for community football, providing the state’s best crop of male and female country footballers.
He said the event would be a boon for Whyalla, providing significant social and economic benefits for clubs and the broader community.
