The atmosphere inside Adelaide Oval is something to savour, with a high quality audio system delivering quality sound throughout. Three giant replay screens – two located in the southern pockets of the ground at 125m2 each and a 180m2 screen in the north – means you won’t miss a thing.
Crowd circulation through the Western, Riverbank and Eastern stands is facilitated by covered concourses up to 10 metres wide while multi-level atriums, lifts, escalators and stairs deliver spectators efficiently to their relevant tier.
The stadium delivers shade through summer and protection from the elements in winter, with 77 percent of seats under cover.
Adelaide Oval offers more than 2,000 dining spaces as well as Corporate Suites, the Audi Stadium Club, open boxes and BBQ terraces.
A new international standard indoor cricket centre is located within the stadium complex. The new indoor cricket training centre is the home of cricket in South Australia, providing an increased floor area, indoor cricket nets, a high performance gym and associated player facilities.
The home change rooms for the Crows and Power are located beneath the Riverbank Stand and provide world class facilities for both teams.
Spending time in the grounds, socialising with friends and experiencing the historic setting of Adelaide Oval has long been just as important as watching an event or game of cricket or football.
Adelaide Oval’s existing and unique attributes, including the Moreton Bay Fig trees, heritage scoreboard and views of St Peter’s Cathedral and northern mound, have been complemented and enhanced.
Adelaide Oval has a number of features that are unique in stadium design. These include BBQ decks, outdoor hospitality facilities on the Village Green and standing room on the famous grassed northern mound. There are also unique views from the dining rooms into the stadium and out to the parklands, over St Peter’s Cathedral and across the city.
Adelaide Oval is a great place to take the family, with food and drink outlets and toilets located at each level of the new Riverbank and Eastern stands. In fact, the new design has exceeded Australian design standards for stadium toilet facilities by 30 percent and there are multiple family rooms and access toilets included throughout each new stand.
Wheelchair accessible and enhanced seating zones are provided on levels 1, 3 and 4 in the Western Stand and levels 1, 3 and 4 in the Riverbank and Eastern stands.
After a successful introduction during the cricket season, a number of Adelaide Oval food and beverage outlets have been converted to only accept card payment for the 2017 AFL season.
All credit and debit cards will be accepted and will be exempt of any surcharges. This change has been implemented to deliver faster service for patrons (less fumbling for change) and is more convenient for patrons who don’t, or don’t want to, carry cash.
Eleven locations around the stadium are clearly signed as card only outlets. Near these card only locations are outlets that will accept both cash and card payments. Adelaide Oval will also make available booths where patrons can exchange cash for a food & beverage cash card should they wish.
Currently over 40% of Adelaide Oval transactions are made with ‘tap and go’. If this retail trend continues to grow, Adelaide Oval will review and make additional card only conversions as required.
Adelaide Oval event-day staff are familiar with the locations of all card only and cash/card outlets and will be available to direct patrons as required.
