The Think! Road Safety Country Football Championships will be returning to the South Coast next year, with Victor Harbor announced as the host site for the 2024 edition.

The two-day carnival will be played at the Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay ovals, in a repeat of the 2021 championships.

Upgrades to the two ovals were seen as fundamental parts to the bid to host the carnival.

An estimated economic impact of $1.25 million came from the last hosting, with Great Southern Football League president Grant Levy saying the announcement is huge for the entire region.

“To host the SA Country Championships in conjunction with the Southern League and Kangaroo Island Leagues, which make up the Southern Districts Zone, will not only benefit our three Leagues but will have huge economic benefits for our whole region,” Mr Levy said.

Port Pirie was also announced today as the host of the 2025 edition.
