'Celebrating Gather Round 2024' Luncheon

Date: Friday 5th April 2024

Time: 11:30am – 2:30pm

Location: Hilton Adelaide

Bask in the electric atmosphere of the ‘festival of football’ at Showcase SA’s Gather Round 2024 lunch.

From the 4th to the 7th of April, South Australia will proudly host the second ‘Gather Round’ football extravaganza. Nine games will be played between Adelaide Oval and Norwood Oval, a stone’s throw from the city, as well as at Mount Barker Oval, amidst the rolling Adelaide hills.

Last year, hotels, bars and restaurants were bustling with football enthusiasts as $55.7 million was injected into the South Australian economy by interstate attendees. An additional $2 million was contributed to rural Mount Braker amid a singular match, demonstrating the monumental economic impact of the round.

This unique opportunity will act as a metaphoric trojan horse for South Australian hospitality businesses – introducing those visiting SA to our unsung culinary expertise and world-class vintners, from our very own CBD, eastern suburbs, and rural townships.

The 3-year partnership between the South Australian Government and the AFL will be instrumental in perpetual support for local clubs through the establishment of a community football legacy fund.

Join us in discussing the unique opportunity presented to SA businesses to foster valuable connections through Gather Round 2024, whilst celebrating South Australian achievements!
