Reserved Seat Membership
Reserved Seat Memberships for the 2022-23 season are sold out. You can join the Reserved Seat Membership waitlist here.
If you are a renewing Member or received a New Member Offer for the 2022-23 season you must still renew/accept in order to be eligible to join the Reserved Seat Membership waitlist. Next season, the current Reserved Seat Members will have first access to renew into their seats for the 2023-24 season for a select period of time. After this time, and depending on availability, SACA will advise the Reserve Seat waitlist (in order of registration), if Reserved Seat Membership is available.
The Reserved Seat Membership is a brand new membership class on offer to our Members for the first time this season.
The Reserved Seat Membership is designed for Members who want the benefits of Full, Country or Junior Membership, plus the confidence of a reserved seat at Adelaide Oval for all Cricket Australia international matches and Adelaide Strikers matches. Arrive at your leisure to your reserved seat for each match.
As a Reserved Seat Member, if you intend to purchase a Transferable Associate Card (season long guest pass) you will also have the option to upgrade to a Reserved Seat Transferable Associate Card, so that your guest can also enjoy a reserved seat beside you.
The Reserved Seat Membership is available for you to upgrade to at the point of accepting your membership.

SACA Big Bash Membership
The SACA Big Bash Membership is a new membership class that grants access to every Adelaide Strikers match including finals at Karen Rolton Oval and Adelaide Oval. This new membership class is made for Adelaide Strikers fans who just want access to the SACA Members’ Area but aren’t looking for access to international and other domestic cricket.
If you choose to take up a SACA Big Bash Membership this season, you will not be entitled to many of the rights and benefits of Full, Country and Junior Membership.
If you wish to upgrade from SACA Big Bash Membership to Full, Country or Junior Membership in future seasons, you will be required to re-join the Full, Country or Junior Membership waitlist, wait to receive an offer and pay the relevant Membership Entrance Fee. The Membership waitlist length is approximately 4-5 years.
If you would like to purchase a SACA Big Bash Membership, please contact SACA Member Services on (08) 8300 3232 during the renewal period.

2022-23 is shaping up to be one of our most anticipated seasons of cricket yet. This summer is headlined by two international fixtures, starting with the Men’s Dettol ODI against England on November 17 and the Men’s Day-Night Test Match against the West Indies on December 8-12.
Our Adelaide Strikers are gearing up for an exciting season off the back of successful campaigns in 2021-22 with both sides going to the wire in nail-biting finals. The New Year’s Eve tradition continues as our Strikers bring the fireworks on and off the field.
The SA Scorpions hope their six home matches this summer will help them go one step further, after storming into the WNCL Final last season. Our West End Redbacks have welcomed fresh talent to the squad for this season’s five Sheffield Shield matches and three Marsh One Day Cup matches in Adelaide.
