Prime-time footy in Cairns locked in for Round 13

St Kilda will head to the Queensland tropics for prime-time footy in Round 13, with the AFL confirming the 7.25pm under-lights encounter with Adelaide.

Cazaly’s Stadium will host the Saturday night spectacle on 12 June as the Saints return to the Sunshine State, which became the second home of football in 2020.

Chief Operating Officer Simon Lethlean said the club was looking forward to making the trip up to Cairns.

“We’re incredibly excited for the opportunity to return to northern Queensland and play in our second home for Premiership points,” Lethlean said.

“We have a strong and growing legion of St Kilda fans up north and we hope to see as many Saints supporters – new and old – at Cazalys Stadium.”

Fans are encouraged make the trip north and cheer on the red,  white and black after the club teamed up with Tourism Tropical North Queensland to offer footy fans the perfect mid-winter escape.

With customisable travel packages, Saints fans can experience all the luxuries Cairns has to offer, including helicopter flights across the Great Barrier Reef, skyrail views over the Daintree Rainforest and more.

Inner sanctum experiences include open training, match day hospitality and functions and exclusive events are also available as add-ons.

“While we expect to have quite a number of Victorian supporters make their way up north, we also look forward to seeing our many Queensland fans make the trip to Cazaly’s Stadium,” Lethlean said.

“The Saturday night slot tops off what should be a terrific occasion.”

The match will be broadcast live and free on Channel 7, as well as Fox Footy and Kayo.
