SACA Big Bash Adult Membership
SACA Big Bash Junior Membership
Last season saw the successful launch of two new Membership categories in response to Member feedback for more choice. The Reserved Seat Membership and SACA Big Bash Membership, in addition to the traditional Full Membership product, present three tiers of SACA Membership.
Reserved Seat Membership
Reserved Seat Membership provides all the benefits of Full Membership, plus the confidence of a reserved seat at Adelaide Oval for Cricket Australia men’s international matches, which for this season includes the Men’s Test Match and T20 International.
The Reserved Seat Members seating area is in the prime location of bays 304 and 305 on Level Three of the Sir Edwin Smith Stand (western stand).
The Reserved Seat Membership sold out in its inaugural year last season. You can join the Reserved Seat Membership waitlist, if you haven’t already, when you renew your Full Membership. Existing Reserved Seat Members will have priority to renew into the same seat. Any remaining seats will be offered to those on the waitlist.
SACA Big Bash Membership
SACA Big Bash Membership provides access to the venue and SACA Members’ Area for just Men’s and Women’s Adelaide Strikers matches. If you choose to downgrade to a SACA Big Bash Membership, you will no longer be entitled to many of the rights and benefits of Full Membership and will be required to re-join the Full Membership waitlist if you later wish to upgrade back to Full Membership.
Full, Country or Junior Members who downgrade to a SACA Big Bash Membership, and later wish to upgrade to Full, Country or Junior Membership again, will be required to re-join the Full/Country/Junior Membership waitlist, wait to receive an offer and pay the Full/Country/Junior Membership Entrance Fee. The current Full/Country/Junior Membership waitlist length is approximately 2-3 years.
If you would like to shift to a SACA Big Bash Membership, please contact SACA Member Services on (08) 8300 3232.

Transferable Associate Cards (season-long guest pass)
SACA Members have the opportunity to purchase a Transferable Associate Card each year for their guest to access all Cricket Australia international and domestic cricket matches at Adelaide Oval and Karen Rolton Oval, including Adelaide Strikers matches.
Transferable Associate Cards are available to Full, Country, Junior and Reserved Seat Members. Reserved Seat Members also have the option to upgrade to a Reserved Seat Transferable Associate Card. You are able to purchase a Transferable Associate Card or a Reserved Seat Transferable Associate Card (as applicable) at the point of renewing (subject to availability).
To prioritise Members over guests for access to cricket at Adelaide Oval, the Board will set a limit on the number of Transferable Associate Cards that can be sold each season, as is already done with daily Guest Passes. The limit set by the Board will be at a number greater than the highest ever historical Transferable Associate Card sales. Members who purchase a Transferable Associate Card, will be offered a priority period to buy a Transferable Associate Card the following season.
SACA Big Bash Members do not have the option to purchase a Transferable Associate Card but have the opportunity to purchase daily Guest Passes for Adelaide Strikers matches only.
Daily Guest Passes
Full, Country, Junior and Reserved Seat Members can also purchase daily Guest Passes for days 4 & 5 of the Test Match, the Men’s T20 International, the Women’s ODI and Adelaide Strikers matches, which provide entry into the Adelaide Oval and SACA Members' Area.
SACA Big Bash Members are entitled to purchased daily Guest Passes for Adelaide Strikers matches.

After winning a maiden Championship in WBBL|08, our Women’s Strikers will be back better than ever looking to repeat history. Our all-conquering home-grown talents Megan Schutt, Tahlia McGrath and Darcie Brown are set to light up the field after a packed year of Australian representation, and it doesn’t stop with them! WBBL|09 will be the first year the WBBL will hold a Draft - an opportunity for us to secure the best in international talent.
In the BBL|13 season, Adelaide Oval will host five home games, headlined by our annual New Year’s Eve match. Prepare yourself for a packed Adelaide Oval, full of entertainment on and off the ground.

The SA Scorpions are aiming to go one step further next season with a very similar squad, after a nail-biting WNCL Grand Final loss in February.
