About the project

A club with a colourful history, West Adelaide was formed around 1892 wearing red, white and blue switching to the old Adelaide Football club colours of red and black when it joined the South Australian Football Association in 1897.

Like so many clubs and businesses, Westies is feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and needs your support now more than ever. Government restrictions means all income streams for the club have been shut down – with the only exception being Memberships and Donations.

It’s a tough time for all, but anyone that is in a position to make a donation, small or large, your contribution is greatly appreciated.

All donations are valuable and will support West Adelaide to weather the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Donations of $2 or more to Keep the Pack Running are tax deductible.

  • Leonie Shearing

    I started following Westies at 8 & by my late teens I was a Bloods fanatic. I even had both my children in the 70's in the off-season, so never had to miss a match! Sitting out on the mound, in heavy rain, it didn't matter, win or lose. The scarf flying out the window after a win was joyful. The 1983 GF win was the highlight & we celebrated at the club. From Leonie, Paul & Kim a $25 donation each for all those wonderful stirring memories, even if at 70 I haven't got to a game now for some time.
