SANFL Grand Final Records

Prior to 1974 all SANFL Grand Finals were held at the Adelaide Oval (bar the 1904 Grand Final at Jubilee Oval). From 1974 to 2013 they were held at Football Park. From 2014 onwards they returned to Adelaide Oval.

Minor grades

Reserves premiership

Reserve grade premierships are contested between the existing SANFL clubs, with the exception of Adelaide, who have elected not to field a team in the SANFL Reserves, and Port Adelaide, who shut down its reserves team in 2018.[1]

While official SANFL records recognise premierships going back to 1919, the first Association league (that operated underneath the SAFA premiership) commenced in 1906, as can be seen in the list of premiers below.[2]

Thirds/Under 19s/17s & U18s/16s

Thirds-grade competitions for SANFL clubs featuring underage players seeking to enter reserves/senior-level football have been in place since the late 1930s. Under-19 and under-17 premierships were scheduled from 1937/1939 to 2008, after which they were replaced with an under 18 competition (initially known as the Maccas Cup) in 2009 and an under 16 series (initially known as the Maccas Shield) in 2010.[2] Note that Port Adelaide's participation in these competitions ended in 2014.

Under 19s premiership (1937–2008)

Under 17s premiership (1939–2008)

Under 18s premiership (2009–present)

Under 16s premiership (2010–present)
