Member Access: Membership cards will not be used this season due to the health regulations which stipulates that every person who attends a day’s play must have an allocated seat. Instead Members will need to access the Oval with the electronic Member Entry Ticket issued via Ticketek.

Access for this BBL Match will be available to SACA Members via Ticketek on a 'first in first served' basis from 10am Friday 15 January, including Guest Passes and complimentary access for Member's children and grandchildren under 10 years of age. Further instructions on how to redeem a ticket will be emailed to Members and will be available on the SACA website here. 

Members' Area Dress Code: To reduce queuing at cross-over points from a health and safety perspective, and as Members will now be seated across the entire oval, we are unable to provide a dedicated Members' Area or enforce the SACA Members’ Area dress code for the Test Match. 

Members Seating:  With capacity restrictions still being enforced by SA Health at Adelaide Oval, the SACA Member seating capacity has been reduced. To accommodate as many Members as possible this season, we have negotiated with Cricket Australia to increase the number of bays available to SACA Members by expanding beyond the traditional SACA Members' Area.

Seating for SACA Members will continue to be in the western stand and Level 3 of the Riverbank Stand, with additional bays also available for Members in the Riverbank Stand (Levels 1 and 5), plus the eastern stand.  Under a revised directive from SA Health, the seating plan will revert to a checkerboard design, as was used during the Test Match.

The SA Health and Adelaide Oval COVID-19 plan for Adelaide Oval requires every patron to sit in the allocated seat provided via Ticketek. This is a change from the normal practice where Members can move around the stadium and we ask for your understanding and support in sitting in the seat listed on your electronic Member Entry Ticket.

Alcohol-Free Seating in the Members’ Area: Members can elect to redeem a ticket and sit in an Alcohol-Free Bay (bays 314 and 315, western stand), subject to capacity.

Car Parking: Members can pre-book car parking in the northern car park via Wilson Book-A-Bay. Click here for more information on how to book.

SACA Member Guest Passes:  Guest Passes will be available for this match from 10am Friday 15 JanuaryFurther instructions will be emailed to Members and will be available on the SACA website here.

Access for Members Children and Grandchildren: Complimentary access for Member's children and grandchildren under 10 years of age will be available for this match from 10am Friday 15 JanuaryFurther instructions will be emailed to Members and will be available on the SACA website here.

Sun Safety: This summer, the Adelaide Strikers are proud to join with Cancer Council SA to encourage all South Australians to be SunSmart and Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide whenever the UV is 3 and above.

Up to 95 per cent of melanomas and 99 per cent of non-melanoma skin cancers are caused by overexposure to UV radiation.

UV radiation can’t be seen and is not related to air temperature—which means that high levels of UV radiation also occur even on cool or cloudy days.

So, how can you make sure that you protect your skin this summer?

  1. Download Cancer Council’s SunSmart App and check the UV before you head outside.
  2. If it’s 3 and above;
  • Slip on sun protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible.
  • Slop on SPF30 sunscreen and reapply every two hours or sooner if you’re swimming, perspiring or towel drying.
  • Slap on a broad brimmed hat that covers your face, neck and ears.
  • Seek shade wherever possible
  • Slide on close fitting, wraparound sunglasses.

This summer, make sure you follow Cancer Council’s advice and protect your skin whenever the UV is 3 and above. To find out more about being SunSmart visit the Cancer Council SA website here.

Let’s celebrate summer safely together!
