The Gold Coast SUNS will play the GWS Giants in the AFL’s second Gather Round for Round 4 of the 2024 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

The SUNS will take to the field at Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills on Sunday afternoon.

Club and AFL members once again have free access to their club’s match, a new family ticket will be introduced where kids go free, and a discounted multi-day pass will also be available. Full ticketing information for Gather Round will be released in the coming weeks.

2024 Memberships are on sale now!

AFL CEO Andrew Dillon said he was looking forward to heading back to South Australia for Gather Round in 2024.

“Gather Round 2023 created a small slice of football history – all 18 clubs in the one state at the one time for a full round of nine matches and a celebration of footy.” Dillon said.

“South Australia really turned it on, and we are excited to bring fans a bigger and better experience in 2024.

“On behalf of the AFL I want to thank the SA government, led by Premier Malinauskas, who committed whole-heartedly to the success of the concept, and we will work together with his team to deliver a fantastic few days in the state.

“Last year’s Gather Round had the wonderful feel of a Grand Final week, from the footy festival and the zip line over the Torrens River, to the community engagement activities and all the open training sessions the clubs held around the town, it was just an incredibly fun atmosphere which we are looking to top next season.”

The inaugural ‘Gather Round’ was an overwhelming success with all nine games sold out. That saw 268,000 fans attend matches, more than 40,000 travelled from interstate, tens of thousands of fans attending the footy festival on the banks of the Torrens, 1,000 player appearances across local football clubs and schools, seminars for community club volunteers and umpires and 10,000 footballs provided to regional clubs in SA but, rather than the numbers themselves, the overwhelming feedback from the weekend in SA was the sense of joy and camaraderie through every part of football, from every part of the community.
