Cheap hotels and flights from Brisbane to Adelaide, how will I go about finding them in a rush come Sunday night?

Additionally, google says Adelaide airport is 17mins from Adelaide oval - could almost commute and skip accom fees?

Well if we do make it, the price of flights is going to be a killer if webjet is anything to go by

So, after tonight's game, irrespective of what happens in the final 2 games, we are assured (at worst) of a playoff spot in the 2017 ACL..... for now. Unless the FFA Cup winners this season finally get acknowledgment..... in which case, there's a high chance of 'get fucked'. To be honest though, finishing 3rd AND losing a semi would hardly be worth ANY reward to be fair.

FWIW, FFA have confirmed the GF will be at Adelaide Oval - http://www.a-league.com.au/article/adelaide-oval-to-host-hyundai-a-league-2016-grand-final/1hjlgre8xm53k1c85pmjhumsbw


To note how big this is for the city of Adelaide, they've only hosted 2 Grand Finals previously. Both in the NSL days.

1994-95 - Melbourne Knights dft Adelaide 2-0 at Hindmarsh Stadium
1986 - Adelaide City hosted the first leg of the Grand Final series against Sydney Olympic at Hindmarsh Stadium. (And Adelaide lost that 'home Grand Final' leg 1-0 as well....... so Adelaide teams are 0-2 in hosted Grand Final games.)

Think of how big the first Grand Final hosting was for us.

Now transfer that balls-out excitement to Adelaide.

Is it at the Adeliade Oval?

Yep. What a horrible venue for football.

blame the FFA. they want every dollar

Ill do my best to get to the GF if we get through... but i bloody hate watching football games at football and cricket OVALS..

Ruins the viewing experience, and after seeing how the pitch was for a Socceroos game, i'd hate to see it now the AFL has started....

Since when does the view of the game matter when it comes to supporting your club?

So if we beat WSW do we get a ACL spot or do we have to win GF also?

Under the current system,

We'd have to win the Grand Final to get a 2017 ACL Group Stage spot. Anything less, and it's hosting the playoff on 7 Feb 2017...... UNLESS the FFA does something with the 2016 FFA Cup and ACL qualification.

I can support my club in many ways, i don't have to go those or away matches to support my team... if you have a foxtel subscription, to watch A League you are effectively supporting them with the TV money.

I have my season membership so i can watch the games at suncorp on the half way line...

As a supporter, i want to "watch" the game... I'm not a supporter that just wants to be a supporter to make me feel good.

You have supporters that spend the whole game drunk and hardly recall the game, yet they are a supporter as well.

Sitting 60mtrs from the halfway line isn't fun if you want to watch the game..

Merged the Let's Go City topic with this. M2C was looking for it but couldn't find it, so it's here now

Holy crap this Adelaide squad is good. I sincerely hope that we are using more than 2 visa players next season. So many other teams are hugely lifted by their imports, yet we had 3 that aren't worth putting in the match day squad. Really hope we can ditch Polenz as I imagine he would be on good money. Really hope JA has some connections to exploit this off season. If we could get an Isaias and a Cirio we would be so much more dangerous.

Adelaide will go on to win this game, because they are not Brisbane and will not f**k up a golden lead in a big game.

Well done Adelaide.. A few hairy moments here or there but in reality the better team won and that defence of theirs is rock solid.

So, very little said this morning, but BOTH A-League teams making the R16 at Asian Champions League for the first time - massive effort.

Sydney FC get Shandong Luneng (who knocked out Adelaide in the play-off)
Melbourne Victory will find out their opponent later on tonight. It will be either Jeonbuk (9pts) or Jiangsu (8pts). Winner plays Melbourne. If it's a draw, Jeonbuk gets the assignment.
