2020-21 SACA Membership

Credit Scheme


1. What happens if cricket content is further reduced or disrupted?

While we are optimistic that cricket will be played at Adelaide Oval this season, we need to be prepared for any situation that may arise.  The 2020-21 SACA Membership Subscription Fees have been discounted upfront to compensate Members in advance for possible inconvenience, including if COVID-19 restrictions or requirements result in:

  • some loss of cricket content;
  • changes to how you access the cricket, such as a ballot, retrieving your ticket(s) electronically or sitting in a reserved allocated seat;
  • the inability to purchase a Transferable Associate Card or daily Guest Passes; and/or
  • a restricted Village Green.

The amount of the upfront discount is $50 for Full Membership, $45 for Country Membership and $30 for Junior Membership.

 

In addition, a credit scheme will be applied towards your 2021-22 SACA Membership Subscription Fee, should COVID-19 restrictions or requirements lead to further disruptions.

 

2. What will the credit scheme be based on?

The credit scheme is based on a baseline of cricket content being delivered at Adelaide Oval this season, being:

  • 1 x ODI or T20I (1 International match day);
  • 1 x Test (5 International match days); and
  • 7 x BBL (7 BBL match days).

(the Baseline Content).  By way of explanation, the Baseline Content has been set by reference to, and is based on the fixture published at the commencement of the prior 2019-20 season.

 

3. What credit could I receive on top of the upfront discount?

The maximum combined discount and credit that could be generated with respect to the 2020-21 season is:

$365.00 $50.00  up to $132.50 $182.50
 Country Membership $310.00  $45.00  up to $110.00   $155.00 
 Junior Membership  $225.00  $30.00   up to $80.00  $112.50 

 

Any credit generated with respect to the 2020-21 season will be applied toward your 2021-22 Membership Subscription Fee.

The credit will only apply if International or BBL match days are lost against the Baseline Content due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements (i.e. after taking into account compensation already afforded through the upfront discount, as described above).  A match or match day will be deemed to be “lost” if it does not proceed at Adelaide Oval or if it proceeds without crowds at Adelaide Oval.   No credit will be applied in respect of any match or match day lost or impacted by reason of a match result, weather or, subject to section 6 below, where a cricket match or match day proceeds at Adelaide Oval with some SACA Member access permitted.

Should Adelaide Oval be allocated additional content, including through the reallocation of matches or the creation of “cricket hubs”, that content would be factored into determining if the Baseline Content has been delivered. 

 

4. How will the Credit Scheme apply if a whole Test, ODI/T20I or BBL Home Season is lost due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements?

We know through multiple surveys that Test Match Cricket is SACA Members’ favourite form of cricket, followed by International ODI/T20 matches and BBL matches (in that order).  Matches in the credit scheme have therefore been allocated a weighting to reflect Member preferences as follows (i.e. combining both the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees and credit available under the Credit Scheme).

 

Test ODI/T20 BBL Total Discount / Credit Membership Class
$117.50 $15.00 $50.00 $182.50 Full Membership
$97.50 $12.50 $45.00 $155.00 Country Membership
$72.50 $10.00 $30.00 $112.50 Junior Membership

 

SACA considers this to be the fairest way to recognise Member preferences and to accommodate the many different ways in which the 2020-21 cricket season could proceed or be impacted in this uncertain environment.

 

The amounts in the above table will apply if:

  • an entire Test is lost against the Baseline Content;
  • a single ODI/T20I match day is lost against the Baseline Content;
  • an entire BBL BBL season is lost against the Baseline Content (i.e. seven home games).

5. How will the Credit Scheme apply if only a partial Test or partial BBL Home Season is lost due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements?

The following values will apply if only a partial Test or partial BBL home season is lost due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements (again, combining both the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees and credit available under the Credit Scheme):

 

Test BBL Membership Class
$35.00 per day up to a maximum of $117.50 $10.00 per day up to a maximum of $50.00 Full Membership
$30.00 per day up to a maximum of $97.50 $9.00 per day up to a maximum of $45.00 Country Membership
$25.00 per day up to a maximum of $72.50 $6.00 per day up to a maximum of $30.00 Junior Membership

 

6. What happens if matches proceed at Adelaide Oval, but with crowd restrictions?

If a cricket match or match day proceeds at Adelaide Oval with some SACA Member access permitted, the match or match day will not be deemed to be “lost” due to COVID-19 restrictions and requirements for the purpose of triggering a credit under the Credit Scheme.

 

However, if venue capacity constraints due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements materially adversely impact the ability of SACA Members to access cricket matches across the 2020-21 season, SACA may determine, in its absolute discretion, to still (separately) apply a specified credit towards a Member's 2021-22 Membership Subscription Fee.  Any credit to apply in these circumstances, and the amount, will be notified to Members at the conclusion of the 2020-21 cricket season. Any additional discretionary credit that may be determined by SACA would be set at a level so that the total Member credit to be received for the 2020-21 season still remains capped at the maximum discount/credit amount for the relevant Membership Class set out in the table in section 3 above.  Members will not be entitled to any credit or amount above the relevant capped maximum discount/credit value set out in that table.

 

Can you provide some worked examples of how the Credit Scheme will operate and apply?

The tables below have been prepared to assist Members to understand how the potential credit scheme would apply in the event that a whole Test Match, a whole ODI/T20I Match or a whole BBL home season was lost due to COVID-19 restrictions or requirements:

Y = Cricket match proceeds with some SACA Member access permitted

Below are several practical examples of how the credit scheme would work if matches or match days are “lost” due to COVID19 restrictions or requirements:

Example 1:

Some Member access permitted to Days 1-4 of Test Match but no play on Day 5 as match result achieved on Day 4, ODI/T20I washout and no BBL matches due to COVID-19:

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
    • ODI/T20I - No credit generated for any match day lost by reason of a match result or if weather impacted
    • BBL matches lost in entirety resulting in combined discount/credit as follows: 
      • Full Member $50
      • Country Member $45
      • Junior Member $30
  • Outcome
    • No credit generated in excess of the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees

Example 2:

Test Match cancelled or proceeds without crowds due to COVID-19, some Member access permitted for ODI/T20I and 7 BBL matches proceed:

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – Credit generated, as no crowds permitted at entire Test Match/Test Match cancelled, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
    • Full Member $117.50
    • Country Member $97.50
    • Junior Member $72.50
    • ODI/T20I - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted  
    • BBL - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
  • Outcome
    • Credit generated as compensation in addition to the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees:         
      • Full Member – Upfront discount of $50.00 plus credit of $67.50
      • Country Member – Upfront discount of $45.00 plus credit of $52.50
      • Junior Member – Upfront discount of $30.00 plus credit of $42.50
Example 3:

Some Member access permitted to Days 1-2 of Test Match, but Days 3-4 proceed without crowds due to COVID-19 and no play on Day 5 as match result achieved on Day 4, ODI/T20I cancelled or proceeds without crowds due to COVID-19, some Member access permitted for 7 BBL matches

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – Credit generated for the 2 days on which no crowds permitted, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member 2 days x $35.00 = $70.00
      • Country Member 2 days x $30.00 = $60.00
      • Junior Member 2 days x $25.00 = $50.00
    • ODI/T20I - Credit generated, as no crowds permitted/cancelled, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member $15.00
      • Country Member $12.50
      • Junior Member $10.00
    • BBL - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
  • Outcome
    • Credit generated as compensation in addition to the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees:
      • Full Member – Upfront discount of $50.00 plus credit of $35.00
      • Country Member - Upfront discount of $45.00 plus credit of $27.50
      • Junior Member - Upfront discount of $30.00 plus credit of $30.00

Example 4:

Test Match proceeds without crowds, no play on Day 5 as match result achieved on Day 4, however some Member access permitted for 4 days of an additional Test Match allocated to Adelaide, ODI/T20I cancelled or proceeds without crowds due to COVID-19, some Member access permitted for 7 BBL matches:

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – If Adelaide Oval is allocated additional content, including through the reallocation of matches or the creation of “cricket hubs”, that content would be factored into determining whether the Baseline Content has been delivered
    • ODI/T20I - Credit generated, as no crowds permitted/cancelled, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member $15.00
      • Country Member $12.50
      • Junior Member $10.00
    • BBL - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
  • Outcome
    • No credit generated in addition to upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees 
    • Additional allocated Test Match with some Member access permitted compensates for lost access to earlier Test Match

Example 5:

Some Member access permitted for entire Test Match, no play on Day 5 as match result achieved on Day 4, ODI/T20I cancelled or proceeds without crowds due to COVID-19, some Member access permitted for 3 BBL matches of 7 (i.e. 4 BBL matches cancelled or proceed without crowds due to COVID-19):

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – No credit generated as some Member access permitted
    • ODI/T20I - Credit generated, as no crowds permitted/cancelled, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member $15.00
      • Country Member $12.50
      • Junior Member $10.00
    • BBL - Credit generated as individual days cancelled or proceed without crowds, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member 4 days x $10.00 = $40.00
      • Country Member 4 days x $9.00 = $36.00
      • Junior Member 4 days x $6.00 = $24.00
  • Outcome
    • Credit generated in addition to the upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees:
      • Full Member – Upfront discount of $50.00 plus credit of $5.00
      • Country Member - Upfront discount of $45.00 plus credit of $3.50
      • Junior Member - Upfront discount of $30.00 plus credit of $4.00

Example 6:

Days 1-4 of Test Match proceed without crowds due to COVID-19, no play on Day 5 as match result achieved on Day 4, some Member access permitted for ODI/T20I, some Member access permitted for 7 BBL matches, plus ability to attend additional BBL content allocated to Adelaide:

  • Interpretation
    • Test Match – Credit generated as whole Test Match cancelled or proceeds without crowds, resulting in combined discount/credit as follows:
      • Full Member $117.50
      • Country Member $97.50
      • Junior Member $72.50
    • ODI/T20I - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
    • BBL - No credit generated, as some Member access permitted
    • Notwithstanding increased BBL content, credit generated due to value Members’ ascribe to international cricket specifically
  • Outcome
    • Credit generated in addition to upfront discount to Membership Subscription Fees:
      • Full Member – Upfront discount of $50.00 plus credit of $67.50
      • Country Member - Upfront discount of $45.00 plus credit of $52.50
      • Junior Member - Upfront discount of $30.00 plus credit of $42.50
