Let's hear the 19th Man in full voice again
2016 was a big year for the Adelaide Crows with plenty of attacking football, lots of goals and big crowds at South Australia's iconic Adelaide Oval. And all of this effort has paid off for the Adelaide Crows who have received the pick of the time slots and venues for their 2017 AFL season.

The Crows play each of the other AFL teams once, and get to play twice against Port Adelaide Power, Essendon, Melbourne, Hawthorn and Geelong in the 22 round season, with the intent of securing at least 12 wins so that they can make the finals again in September. The Crows home games are as follows :

Sunday 26 March (250 pm) v GWS Giants
Saturday 15 April (710 pm) v Essendon
Sunday 30 April (410 pm) v Richmond Tigers
Saturday 13 May (710pm) v Melbourne
Saturday 27 May (710pm) v Fremantle Dockers
Friday 9 June (720pm) v St Kilda
Thursday 22 June (720pm) v Hawthorn
Friday 7 July (720pm) v Western Bulldogs
Friday 21 July (720pm) v Geelong Cats
Sunday 6 August (410pm) v Port Adelaide Power
Friday 18 August (720pm) v Sydney Swans

The Crows are also visitors to Adelaide Oval on Saturday night of the 8th April when they tackle Port Adelaide in the first of the two showdowns during 2017.

The Crows will be hoping for a better performance in 2017 than the previous year when they were the league's most attacking side, and made the finals, albeit falling short to a strong finishing Swans outfit in Sydney.

During the offseason, the Crows have recruited well and have injected five new young draftees from the National Draft, and have supplemented that with the club's first ever father-son recruit being Ben Jarman, the son of Darren Jarman, one of the heroes from Adelaide's successful 1997 and 1998 grand finals.

When coupled with a few retirees and some player delistings from 2016, the average age of the Crows team is now mid-pack at just under 24 years of age, albeit they now have one of the least experienced clubs with players commencing the 2017 season having averaged only 53 games each.

But none of that is likely to be a detractor from a continuation of the strong attacking game that the Crows introduced with success in 2016.
