Glenelg Oval

Glenelg Oval (officially known as ACH Group Stadium due a commercial naming-rights agreement) is an oval ground in Adelaide that hosts Australian football and cricket. As home of SANFL club Glenelg Tigers and the Glenelg Cricket Club, it features the HY Sparkes Stand with undercover seating for 500 spectators, two pavilions and a maximum ground capacity of 14,000. The older Edward Rix Stand was demolished following significant wind damage in December 2016. There is concrete terracing on the grandstand side of the ground, with a grass bank surrounding the rest of the playing field. Floodlights were installed in 2012 to allow for night football games at the ground.

The record crowd of 17,171 was recorded in 1968 for a SANFL game between Glenelg and Sturt. In 2016, the oval hosted the Sheffield Shield final, between South Australia and Victoria, due to the Adelaide Oval being unavailable, and it'll again host Shield cricket in 2020.

Glenelg Oval has had a number of commercial names including  Challenge Recruitment Oval from 2007, Gliderol Stadium from 2008, and now ACH Group Stadium since 2019.
