While the impacts of the pandemic continue to be felt across Australia, and the world, we understand that not everyone will be able to join us this summer. With our primary objective being to protect the health and safety of our Members, players and staff during this unprecedented time, SACA remains flexible and is continuously adapting to changes and health directives as they occur. To protect you and your rights as a Member, we have made some changes to the absentee qualification criteria and application process for the 2020-21 season.

- A fee of $80 applies (includes $7.27 GST, which is a taxable supply).
- A late fee of $40 will be charged for Absentee Applications received after 9 October 2020 (includes $3.64 GST, which is a taxable supply).
- Members who have not paid their absentee fee by 23 October 2020 will have their Membership cancelled by the Board.

1.7 Absentee list
For the purposes of any application by a Member by-law 2.6(a)(ii) of Part A to have their name placed on the absentee list for the 2020/21 Membership Year, the Board has determined that accepted “extenuating circumstances” will include (but not be limited to) the following grounds:

- a Member is living with, or is a close contact or carer of, a person vulnerable to COVID-19;
- a Member is uncomfortable to attend matches due to health risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic; or
- a Member is experiencing financial hardship.
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.
