State venue and date decided.
Body: 
According to a poster on the BigFooty site. The VFL v SANFL game will be played at the TEAC Oval. [quote]Big V date set South Australia will play the Big V on Saturday, May 21 next year in Melbourne in a clash of the top state leagues. The early-season booking ties in with the AFL's Adelaide vs. St. Kilda fixture at Telstra Dome on the preceding Friday night. It is hoped the correlation of the two SA teams playing in Melbourne within 24 hours will entice SA football fans to the TEAC Oval--the home of Port Melbourne--to support their local league boys. A date in June was also considered but it was felt the tie up with the Crows and their army of fans would give the SANFL a better chance to attract the support it deserved. The state coach to replace new Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson will be decided early next year and the squad will train for at least four weeks. That makes early-season form critical for SANFL players. "It's very important we put up a strong performance against Victoria," SANFL football operations manager Glen Rosser said.
