SANFL is excited to announce National Pharmacies as its naming rights partner for the ever-expanding SANFL Juniors competition.
Set to be known as SANFL National Pharmacies Juniors for season 2020, the community club-based competition is the start of a football journey for more than 13,000 boys and girls in the metro area.
Now boasting as many as 638 teams across more than 50 community clubs, SANFL National Pharmacies Juniors is the largest Australian junior football competition in Australia.

“National Pharmacies is a highly respected and proud South Australian-based organisation with existing strong ties with football in South Australia and now we’re thrilled to have them on board as the first naming rights partner of our highly successful junior metro competition,” Mr Parkinson said.
