Saturday’s Round 16 fixture between the Adelaide Crows and Brisbane Lions will now go ahead at Adelaide Oval in front of a revised maximum crowd of 25,000.
This follows extensive consultation between Adelaide Oval, SA Health, the State Government, and Adelaide Football Club.
A maximum of 22,500 patrons will be located throughout the stadium in addition to 2,500 corporate tickets.
The Adelaide Football Club and Adelaide Oval Football Membership Team will issue instructions to members regarding ticket downloads.
“We are very pleased to have the Crows and Lions playing in front of an Adelaide Oval crowd, albeit with a reduced capacity,” said Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority COO Adam Vonthethoff.
“There has been an enormous amount of work put in behind the scenes to enable this game to go ahead and we look forward to welcoming fans on Saturday afternoon.”
Some minor changes have been made to Adelaide Oval’s COVID Management Plan including:
- The pods on the Northern Mound will revert to one person per 2sqm with a maximum of 1125 patrons across four pods; and
- Indoor capacities will revert to 1 person per 2sqm and all indoor patrons must be seated for food and beverage consumption.
As with last weekend, the two front rows within the stadium will be kept free, as will a two-seat buffer around the player races.
Unfortunately, the Don McSweeney Aboriginal Lands Cup Curtain Raiser has had to be cancelled; this has resulted in a change to opening times for gates and car parks:
- 1.30pm Car parks open
- 2.30pm Gates open
- 4.05pm First bounce
Patrons are reminded that it is a mandatory requirement from SA Health for patrons to wear a mask as they enter, move around the stadium and as they leave.
