We’re in good company, but don’t just take it from us. Adelaide Oval works with a diverse range of businesses that have held successful functions and events with us.

Niamh was extremely organised and I found it very easy to work with her prior to the event. The food and service were both exceptional at the event. Overall it was one of the easiest and best events I have organised to date.
Commonwealth Bank

Nothing was too much trouble. We had a change in staff member looking after us, but it was effortless. Fabulous and attentive. They knew what they were doing and they did it well.
St Ignatius College 

Great experience and we've had fantastic feedback from our guests. Went above and beyond to make sure all our needs were taken care of. Absolutely fantastic and very professional.

Just wanted to acknowledge and thank you for all your work and support with our function at Adelaide Oval this morning. We received many favourable comments on the venue, food and staff and I wanted to add my appreciation and thanks to that as well. Matt, the audio visual guys and waiting staff were fantastic and very helpful… Whilst I have been involved and organised many corporate events such as the one this morning, I think this year the venue and assistance we received from AO was the best and your team certainly assisted us have a successful event.
Wendy Dunlop, Salvation Army.

A big THANK YOU for this morning’s breakfast event. It was a huge success and I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff – in particular our supervisor Darren. We look forward to more events with you.
