Adelaide Comets FC to get new fence after row with council


The Adelaide Comets Football Club have successfully appealed against Adelaide City Council’s initial rejection to erect a fence around its parklands pitch.

According to The Advertiser, the club initially proposed to build a 1.1m high around their home grounds, however it was rejected by Council due to potential risk of it setting a ‘precedent’ for the parklands and create the illusion that the public would be excluded. 

Adelaide City Councillor Mary Couros had then tabled a motion to overturn the decision. The motion passed on Tuesday, February 27, and was backed with an 8-3 vote.

In a statement on Facebook, the Club thanked everyone for their support.

“Adelaide Comets would like to thank everyone who has supported us, not just the past few weeks but over our 30 years,” the Club said.

“As a club, we have been overwhelmed by the response and support we have seen from not just the football community, but the community as a whole.”
