Sport SA Partners and Members Breakfast
The Sport SA Partners and Members Breakfast is held annually to recognise and thank Sport SA‘s Partners and Members of the previous financial year. Sport Centre has in 2016 been brought on board as naming right sponsors. In recent years the Breakfast has also included the Sport SA Award Finalist Announcement function, which announces and acknowledges the 3 finalists in each of the 8 Sport SA Awards categories, showcasing those behind the sporting stars, up and coming talent as well as outstanding regional athletes.
