Adelaide Oval has been completely redeveloped and the new-look venue will host its first official event on Saturday 29th March 2014 with the big South Australian showdown between Port Adelaide and the Adelaide Crows. The venue has been transformed to become the new home of AFL football in South Australia and now has a capacity of 53,583. It remains the home of cricket and will also play host to other events including rugby league and union, football and concerts.

Adelaide Oval

Adelaide Oval has enjoyed a proud history as one of Australia’s premier sporting and entertainment venues for more than 140 years. In late 2009, the State Government committed $535 million to redevelop Adelaide Oval with the view to delivering an internationally renowned, world-class venue for the 21st Century. The redeveloped oval will sit proudly within a revitalised riverbank and parklands precinct; home to cricket, football and providing an exceptional venue for a host of other major sporting events and entertainment.

Adelaide Oval has long been regarded as one of the more picturesque Test cricket venues in the world and that has been kept in mind during the redevelopment. The first stage was the construction of a new 14,000-seat western grandstand, replacing the old members stand, which was completed in November 2010. That gave the venue a capacity of 36,000.

Phase two of the redevelopment which commenced in early 2012 involved the construction of two new grandstands, the southern stand (14,000 capacity) which was completed first, followed by the eastern stand (19,000 capacity), which has boosted the total seating capacity to 50,083 plus standing room for 3,500 on the hill. The famous hill has been retained along with the historic scoreboard and the distinctive Moreton Bay figs which were planted in the 1890s.

Both the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide will be all their AFL home matches at the newly completed venue, having both moved from AAMI Stadium (Football Park).

Adelaide Oval is located on the edge of the CBD and as part of the Riverbank master plan, a new footbridge has been constructed to link the venue to the city.
