Promotion of the VFL vs Promotion of the SANFL.

I am in Adelaide at the moment and the promotion for the SANFL games this weekend has been great. In the VFL there is little to no promotion of the games each week.

This weekend in the SANFL as it is a no AFL weekend here has been promoted as the "Rivalry" Round and is sponsored by The Good Guys. During the week at all Good Guys stores in Adelaide each store gave away 200 double passes for the games this weekend. At the grounds to if you brought 2x600ml Coca-Cola bottles you received a free stubby holder which had the game you were at on it. That is good promotion for the League here.

I was the West vs Eagles game today at City Mazda Stadium(Richmond) which was made into a triple header with reserves then seniors playing but after the seniors was the Under 18 match starting at 5pm. It was great entertainment despite the conditions from 11am until it finished at 7:30pm.

Tomorrow I am off to see Glenelg vs Sturt at Gliderol Stadium(Glenelg) with better weather their should be a good crowd there.

West vs Eagles(City Mazda Stadium,Richmond) 2102
Port vs Norwood(Alberton Oval) 2716
Centrals vs North(Hamra Homes Oval,Elizabeth) 2685

Certainly the SANFL do it much better.
