Entry and seating

As the pinnacle of a range of exclusive Member benefits, Members enjoy entry to all Cricket Australia international, domestic and Big Bash League cricket matches played at Adelaide Oval and Karen Rolton Oval.

Entering Adelaide Oval

All Member Cards, Transferable Associate Cards and Daily Guest Passes (where applicable) must be scanned when entering Adelaide Oval and the SACA Members’ Area. Copies or photographs of Member Cards or Transferable Associate Cards (printed or on devices) will strictly not be accepted.

Members’ Area Seating

Seating in the Members’ Area at Adelaide Oval is non-allocated and is available on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis, except for Daily Seat Holds and Reserved Seat Members, which are located in bays 304 & 305 of the Sir Edwin Smith Stand.

You can select an available seat in the Chappell Stand, Sir Donald Bradman Pavilion and the Sir Edwin Smith Stand (western stands), as well as Level 3 in the Riverbank Stand. During international matches, seating will also include sections of Level 5 in the Riverbank Stand.

Alcohol-Free Seating Area

Bays 314 and 315 in Level 3 of the Chappell Stand (western stand) are designated alcohol-free seating areas.

Mobility Impaired Seating

Designated wheelchair locations and mobility impaired seats are available in the western stands and Riverbank Stand. If you require one of these spaces for yourself and your carer, please complete a Mobility Impaired Seating Application Form available here.

Complimentary Daily Reserved Seat Stickers

During Cricket Australia international matches, Members will be issued with a complimentary reserved seat sticker upon entry to the Adelaide Oval. It is the patron’s responsibility to ensure they collect this sticker from gate staff immediately upon entry. Only one sticker will be issued per person per day, even if you intend to collect for another patron.

Stickers can be used to reserve an available seat prior to the start of play and during the innings breaks. Permitted reserve seat times are:

Test Match (day night format):

  • Gate opening to start of play
  • During the dinner break (40 minutes)
  • During the tea break (20 minutes)

Test Match (day format):

  • Gate opening to start of play
  • During the tea break (20 minutes)
  • During the dinner break (40 minutes)

T20 International

  • Gate opening to start of play
  • During the innings break (1 hour)

One Day International

  • Gate opening to start of play
  • During the innings break (1 hour)

At all other times, reserved seat stickers are not valid and can therefore not be used to reserve a seat. Seats left abandoned outside of the reserved time will be available for other Members to claim. Members are not permitted to remove reserved seat stickers from an empty seat and are required to seek assistance from an Adelaide Oval usher.

Members who prefer to reserve a seat can purchase a Daily Seat Hold. Find out more here.
