Absentee List

The Absentee List will return to the pre-pandemic criteria this season. SACA Members seeking absentee status will be required to meet the Absentee List criteria in order to put their Membership on hold for the 2022-23 season.

The COVID-19-related “extenuating circumstances” criteria in place for the last two seasons no longer applies.


SACA Big Bash Members cannot apply for the Absentee List. All other eligible SACA Members can apply as per the eligibility criteria outlined below.

Eligibility criteria to be placed on the Absentee List:
  • You will be absent from South Australia for a full Membership year (1 September 2022 to 31 August 2023) or;

  • You can demonstrate having extenuating circumstances preventing you from enjoying the benefits of your SACA Membership for the 2022-23 season.

    or Reserved Seat Transferable Associate Cards and Daily Guest Passes or to book for SACA Member hospitality and events.
  • Any Reserve Seat Member whose name is placed on the Absentee List will forego their reserved seat(s). The Member can reapply for Reserved Seat Membership in future
    seasons (subject to availability) however SACA cannot guarantee their assigned reserved seat(s) will still be available.
  • 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).

*SACA’s Membership By-Laws were updated on 18 July 2022. The majority of the changes are to implement new categories of SACA Membership (Adult Reserved Seat Membership, Junior Reserved Seat Membership and SACA Big Bash Membership). Amendments have also been made to Part F of the By-Laws for the 22/23 cricket season, to reflect COVID-19 restrictions and requirements, including a potential balloting arrangement and credit program.
