IMPORTANT SHOWDOWN ARRIVAL INFORMATION

We’re excited to be able to welcome a crowd for Saturday’s Showdown 50. However, in light of current circumstances, SA Health requires that we enact some particular measures to ensure everyone’s safety. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Hospitality and Club Function ticketholders MUST arrive between 5PM and 6PM via the designated lanes at the gate on their ticket. At the final siren, these ticketholders will be asked to wait for 15 minutes while other patrons exit the ground.
  • Members attending using a Club or Football membership ticket MUST arrive from 6:10PM onwards via the gated marked on their ticket. At the final siren, these fans will be asked to leave the venue first, with all post-game activities cancelled.
  • In line with state-wide mask requirements, fans are asked to wear masks at all times and in all areas, including when seated, except when eating and drinking. All consumption must be seated, and seating rows will be separated by two empty rows to maintain social distancing where possible.
  • Please note, if you do not arrive at your designated time, you may not be able to enter the ground.

The entire Adelaide Oval team thanks patrons in advance for abiding by this information and helping us to create a safe, fun environment. We can’t wait to see you back at the footy.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, with the return to full capacity, the Northern Mound will return to normal.

Yes, we endeavour to have to have as many food and beverage outlets open as possible. Every effort has been made to ensure ample staff are rostered for game day, however, we continue to face challenges with the staffing of shifts as a result of COVID-19 cases prohibiting people from working. We may at times need to close a kiosk or work our way through a longer queue, but, as always, our staff will be working hard to serve you as quickly as possible. Please note, Adelaide Oval food and beverage outlets only accept payment by card. For those patrons who may attend with cash only, card exchange booths are located around the stadium.
