Our Footy, Our People, Our Stories

Exhibition and Shows

3 Jun 2022 to 16 Oct 2022 Daily Event

Immerse yourself in 145 years of great moments and achievements of the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) in a new exhibition, Our Footy, Our People, Our Stories. The State Library is pleased to be partnering with the SANFL History Centre to bring this part of South Australia’s sporting history alive.

See highlights of the History Centre’s huge collection, including medals, posters, photographs, guernseys, trophies, film and video, audio, posters and fan memorabilia. The State Library will complement this material by including items from the library’s collections. Highlights include two Magarey Medals donated by the families of the 1929 winner Bob Snell, and Max Pontifex who won in 1932, as well as images from the Ken Farmer scrapbooks.

The State Library and SANFL, through the History Centre, share a common goal to collect and preserve the history of South Australia. Together the exhibition tells the stories that provide an insight into the social history of South Australia.

Many of us enjoy the rivalry of the SANFL but now we come together to explore and cherish the history of the competition, the characters, colour and controversy of the last 145 years.
