PORT ADELAIDE will complete the SANFL regular season with a Saturday afternoon game against Central District.
The SANFL has released its fixture for Round 18 of the Statewide Super League which starts on Friday 23 August.
Port Adelaide will tackle the Bulldogs at X Convenience Oval at Elizabeth at 2:10pm.
The Magpies are on track to play finals, having missed the major round in 2018.
The Finals Fixtures have also been released, with a double header Elimination and Qualifying Final at Adelaide Oval on a Saturday afternoon and night as one of the highlights.
All finals will be played at Adelaide Oval and be broadcast on Channel 7, SEN SA and Life FM, with ABC Radio Adelaide to broadcast only the Preliminary and Grand Finals, and FIVEaa and Triple M will broadcast the Grand Final.
‘’With there being no AFL matches on the first weekend of SANFL finals, we saw this as an ideal opportunity to showcase the Elimination and Qualifying Finals in a different timeslot and in doing so, not compromise the Dads out there by keeping free Father’s Day which is celebrated the next day,’’ SANFL General Manager of Football Adam Kelly said.
‘’SANFL fans have traditionally supported night football strongly which should make for an exciting atmosphere to launch the 2019 Statewide Super League Finals Series, a series which is shaping as one of quality and intrigue that will build upon the highly successful conclusions to the season that we have witnessed over recent years.’’
The remaining SANFL finals will be played on Sundays, including the Statewide Super League Grand Final on Sunday September 22 at 3pm.
