The Venue


Adelaide Oval has hosted both cricket and football at the highest level since Colonial times and its iconic, historic and cultural presence remains today. Now, cricket and football have brought the two sports together at the redeveloped Adelaide Oval - delivering an internationally renowned, world-class venue for the 21st Century.

It has placed Adelaide on the global map for a range of international and national entertainment and sporting events. It has encouraged interstate and international tourism and so created a recreational dynamic that allows the people of Adelaide and their visitors to enjoy - in their thousands - the River Bank Precinct at a point where North Terrace, the River and the Oval come together. The redevelopment is unique, mixing the very best of new world wide designs and stadium operations with the famous heritage of Adelaide Oval.

Putting all these existing and new elements together, and carefully integrating the highly valued surrounding parklands into the composition, the Adelaide Oval has acquired a new found memorial identity - one that further enhances the way Adelaide is viewed without destroying the essential imagery of the city within the park.
