The Crows – who on Saturday cemented themselves as an AFLW dynasty with a 13-point Grand Final win over Melbourne – will be honoured with a public celebration under the Rundle Mall canopy at 5pm today.

Adelaide has now won three out of five AFLW grand finals, adding the 2022 premiership to their triumphs in 2017 and 2019.

Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor, whose council is co-hosting the event alongside the State Government, said she hoped to see a big crowd at the event.

“These women are such impressive role models, in particular for young women and girls, so I look forward to seeing a big crowd gather on Monday in Rundle Mall to show them our appreciation and help mark this historic third AFLW premiership,” she said.

Crows coach Matthew Clarke faces a huge challenge over the offseason to keep his record-breaking side together, with expansion clubs Essendon, Hawthorn, Sydney and Port Adelaide set to join the competition next season.

The new clubs will be able to poach up to 14 players each from existing clubs, with Adelaide star Erin Phillips set to be Port Adelaide’s top target for their inaugural season.
