UPDATE: 21ST JUNE, 2021
This site was established in 2011. The intent was to build an archive of historic South Australian football footage and preserve it in digital format and make it available on YouTube.
In order to achieve this we uploaded previews of footage rather than upload it in its entirety, in order to give incentive for these with footage to come forward and offer it for trade.
This strategy has been very effective. We started with a couple of state games and grand finals and over the course of the last decade have collected a massive archive of footage, including over 1000 games.
From June 2021 we will commence uploading all available footage in full. The first upload, featuring over 300 games occurred on 21st June, 2021. YouTube links to all of these games are available at The Archive page. Our YouTube channel is HERE.
The SA Football Video Archive was created in 2011 and has the following aims:
1. To collect footage of SANFL, State of Origin and State football matches and related material. Although not exclusive, the emphasis is on collection of material dating up until and including the 1990's.
2. To convert footage only available on VHS/BETA and S-VHS video tape to digital.
3. To build up an archive of historic footage that might otherwise be lost forever.
4. To make all collected footage available to all via YouTube.
For a complete list of available matches and footage see The Archive page.
If you have footage that is not included in our archive, please contact us.
Complete uploads from many available videos can be viewed on our YouTube Channel.
Below are a couple of examples of video converted from decades old home recorded video tapes:
