Dress in red and celebrate United’s Championship at Town Hall!


Come and cheer on Adelaide United players and officials as they meet and greet fans outside the Adelaide Town Hall at 12 noon tomorrow to celebrate their extraordinary Hyundai A-League Grand Final win.

Fans should dress in red for an exciting event in front of Adelaide Town Hall at 12 noon. This will be followed by an official reception for players, officials and sponsors.

Lord Mayor Martin Haese said he looks forward to welcoming the team to Town Hall to show Council’s support for the team’s great season and amazing win on Sunday in front of a sell-out crowd at Adelaide Oval.

“This is the Reds’ first grand final victory from 13 seasons in the A-League, so it’s definitely cause for celebration,”said Martin.

“I encourage absolutely everyone to join me at Town Hall to applaud our champion team’s fantastic result! Bring your flags and banners, but most importantly, bring your family and friends to share in this moment.

“Guillermo Amor and his players should be congratulated on such a great game and an all-round excellent season.”

Minister for Sport and Recreation, Leon Bignell, said such an outstanding win deserves a large public celebration.

“A win like this really puts Adelaide on the map as a destination. It’s a great boost for tourism, with the grand-final a spectacle of colour and movement, and an amazing advertisement for our great city,” he said.

“This is truly a win that will be remembered for many years to come and we want everyone to come to Town Hall to help us celebrate and show our support for the Reds –the best soccer team in Australia.”

Adelaide United Club Chairman Greg Griffin said after such a ground breaking season by the Reds, this is the perfect chance to recognise the magnificent efforts of the team on such a monumental achievement.

“Winning the Championship and Premiership after our start to the season is a massive accomplishment, perhaps the most significant that we will see in Australian football for a long time.

“Throughout the entire campaign we’ve had immense support from the South Australian public and we would love to see them turn out in droves once again.

“Cover yourselves in your favourite Reds gear and support the boys for this amazing achievement.”

The eastern side of King William Street between Flinders and Pirie Streets will be closed to traffic between 9.30am and 2pm and buses will be re-routed.
