Behind The Wall – Collab For Change

Titanium Security Arena

Wednesday 22 May @6:30pm


The Adelaide Lightning is one of the most successful professional teams in Australian Sport. Having won 5 championships in nearly 30-years the on-court success of the club is astounding. Despite the success on-court the club faces its most challenging period in history with the former owner handing the license in after the teams’ Grand Final series this year.

A consortium of new owners refused to let the team disappear and have committed to two years to turn around the club’s financial position in what is a male dominated industry with investment opportunities being directed largely towards the men’s teams in the NBL.

With new owners, and passionate staff, the Adelaide Lightning are not only looking to turn their fortunes around but bring along the community and build an inclusion wall that represents positive change and opportunity through collaboration.
