The City of Unley has approved a permanent fence being erected around the playing field of Unley Oval. Pick-a-Picket campaign is an exclusive opportunity for you to own your own piece of history. Make your mark by purchasing an individually numbered and personalised picket with nominated name and/or family name. The money raised will go towards financing the construction of this fence which is necessary to back up the clubs commitment to the City of Unley for the cost of the construction of the fence in the effort to reduce match day set up costs.

How will it appear on the picket?
