There are limited tickets to the exclusive Play On After Party which will be staged against the dramatic backdrop of the city skyline providing an unrivalled atmosphere to cap off the 2023 Hostplus SANFL League season.

Premium beverages, food outlets and festoon lighting will add to the first-class entertainment.
