Absentee List

We understand that not everyone will be able to join us this summer.

Similar to last year, Members who anticipate being unable to enjoy or require their Membership for the 2021-22 Membership year, including by reason of extenuating circumstances arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic, may elect to have their names placed on the absentee list.

Members who join the absentee list will have most of their SACA rights and benefits suspended for the 2021-22 Membership year, including free entry to any Cricket Australia International, BBL or domestic matches at Adelaide Oval, WBBL matches or additional ticketed matches at Karen Rolton Oval, the right to purchase Guest Passes (if available), or to book for Member hospitality at International and BBL matches or exclusive SACA Member events for AFL games at Adelaide Oval.

SACA will, for the 2021-22 Membership year, not enforce the usual requirement that Members have their name placed on the absentee list for no more than three consecutive Membership years.

 
Eligibility criteria to be placed on the Absentee List:
  • Financial Hardship

  • Uncomfortable attending matches due to pandemic health risks
  • You are pregnant or have given birth within last 12 months
  • Partner is pregnant or has given birth within last 12 months
  • Other extenuating circumstances

Terms and Conditions:

  • A fee of $80 applies (includes $7.27 GST, which is a taxable supply).
  • Members who have not paid their absentee fee by 31 October 2021 will have their Membership cancelled by the Board.
  • Members on the absentee list will have certain Membership rights and benefits suspended for the period they remain on the absentee list, including but not limited to entry to any Cricket Australia International and domestic matches at Adelaide Oval, the right to purchase Guest Passes, or to book for SACA Member hospitality at cricket matches or AFL matches at Adelaide Oval.
  • Members whose names are placed on the absentee list agree to accept and be bound by SACA’s Constitution and By-Laws (refer to Absentee extract below).
