Cricket etiquette

As a Member, you’ll be at the heart of the action for another unforgettable summer at Adelaide Oval, celebrating with good friends, united in your passion for the game. There are a set of behaviours we should all respect to make a day out at the cricket even more enjoyable.


Please remember to show consideration to others by limiting movement in seating areas during play. It is particularly important to remain seated during an over.


Standing or sitting in aisles or on stairways is not permitted due to safety regulations.

Mobile Phones

The use of mobile phones can be distracting and potentially offensive to patrons around you. Please be discreet and considerate of others and limit use to the bar minimum whilst seated during play.

Holding Seats

Holding seats for other patrons who have not yet arrived at the venue is not permitted. This includes verbally, or placing items such as rugs, bags or clothing over seats.

Seat Packing

Please do not leave spare seats between individuals or groups of people. If seating gaps are noticed, you may be required to relocate to close the gap.


SACA Members, Transferable Associate Cardholders and guests queuing for entry must do so in person. Staff will remove any items left to hold places in the queue. Queue jumping should be reported to staff.

Responsible Service of Alcohol

Please note that under Responsible Service of Alcohol legislation it is illegal to serve alcohol to any person(s) whom a member of staff believes to be intoxicated, and Adelaide Oval reserves the right to refuse service to any such person(s). It is illegal to serve alcohol to any person(s) under the age of 18 years and Adelaide Oval reserves the right to request suitable identification from anyone purchasing or consuming alcohol.


The National Terrorism Threat Level is regularly reviewed in line with the security environment and intelligence. All suspicious activity or persons should be reported to any staff or police. All incidents or identified concerns will be followed up immediately. The most important thing is to be observant and vigilant.
