Adelaide Oval

Visit one of the largest stadiums in Australia to see an international test cricket match, a home-team AFL showdown or fascinating sporting exhibitions.

With a capacity of more than 50,000 spectators and a history that goes back nearly to the beginning of Australia’s national sport, Adelaide Oval is an important city icon.  Today, Adelaide Oval is the home ground for both of Adelaide’s AFL football teams, the Adelaide Crows and the Port Adelaide Power. You can also visit the stadium to watch cricket and concerts by touring musicians. Sir Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson and Madonna have all graced its stage. 

Visit the stadium during AFL season to experience the unparalleled atmosphere of a big clash. South Australia is home to some of the the nation’s most passionate AFL supporters. Watch the stands fill with spectators sporting team colours and listen to the roar when a team scores a goal. Grab a snack from one of the kiosks and enjoy a pie or some nachos as you watch the game. 

Spend a summer’s day relaxing in the sun as you take in a test cricket match. Throughout the summer, the Adelaide Oval is one of the nine major stadiums used for international test cricket and attending for a day is a classic Australian experience. 

Sign up for a guided tour and explore the historic stands. Step on the ground where some of the classic moments in Australia’s sporting history took place and snap photographs of the stunning sail-like roof. Despite being built in 1871, the stadium maintains an air of contemporary design due to numerous expansions and redevelopments. 

Visit the Bradman Collection, an exhibition outlining the life of Australia’s most famous cricketer. Pose for a photo with the statue of the batsman outside the main gates. 

Adelaide Oval is located 2 kilometres (1.2 miles) from the city centre. Get there by bus, tram or train. Metered parking is available outside. Tickets to matches and tours can be purchased online or at the gates.
