Prospect Oval

Prospect Oval is an oval ground located in the Adelaide suburb of Prospect and is the home ground of SANFL club North Adelaide Roosters. It features a main grandstand on the wing with undercover seating for around 2,000 spectators and a maximum estimated capacity of 20,000. The facilities have been improved in recent years with part of the existing grandstand converted into a function centre, as well as a new gym, improved players’ facilities including new meeting rooms, amenities, plunge pool and medical areas.

The ground record attendance was set in Round 5 of the 1958 SANFL season when 19,137 fans saw defending SANFL premiers Port Adelaide defeat North Adelaide 14.14 (98) to 8.10 (58). The oval was opened in 1898 by the colonial Premier at the time Sir Charles Kingston, while the North Adelaide Football Club first used the Oval for home games in 1922 with the first match taking place on 8 May 1922 against Glenelg. The club officially named both ends of Prospect Oval in 2012 after the two official Icons of the Club. The northern end around the goals was named the Ken Farmer End after the club and SANFL's all-time leading goalkicker while the southern end was named the Barrie Robran End after the three time Magarey Medal winner.
