Gate Entry and Exit Details

  • Patrons will be directed on their mobile ticket to enter via the South OR North gate.
  • Gates will open at 5.30pm and patrons have a responsibility to ensure they social distance as they enter/exit the ground.
  • To avoid unnecessary queuing and ensure everyone will be inside the ground before the first bounce we encourage people to not leave their arrival to the last minute.

Adelaide Oval has worked with SA Health and SAPOL to make it as safe as possible for everyone attending. The following preventative measures will be implemented for the event:

  • Tickets will be mobile tickets to ensure Adelaide Oval has the contact details of all people who are in the stadium
  • Every second turnstile will be used
  • Patrons will be seated 1.5 metres apart sitting in every fourth seat (leaving three vacant seats between) and in alternate rows
  • Signage will be in place around the stadium to remind people of social distancing measures
  • Additional cleaning, hygiene and waste management measures will be implemented
  • Toilets will be managed to limit the number of people in a bathroom at any one time
  • Patrons are encouraged to minimise the number and size of bags they bring to make it quicker for security to conduct bag checks
  • Food and beverages are to be consumed in the patron’s allocated seat. There will not be any designated areas for people to gather.
  • Payment will be accepted by card only (including car parking).
