Adelaide Oval is the proud centrepiece of this cosmopolitan city. It’s a venue steeped in sporting, arts and cultural history – one loved both for its heritage and modern features. A major renovation completed in 2013 increased the stadium’s capacity to 53,500 and reinforced its reputation for hosting world-class events. Today Adelaide Oval is home to AFL, cricket, soccer, rugby league and sell-out concerts by renowned artists including Adele, Guns N’ Roses and The Rolling Stones.

South Australia has proudly hosted cricket for almost 150 years. Across the decades Adelaide Oval has welcomed record-breaking matches including the first ever day-night Ashes Test in 2017. The ground is also home to the world-famous Bradman Collection Museum – in honour of Australian cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman – and hosts the popular RoofClimb experience, taking visitors skyward for a new view of this very special place. Guided cricket walking tours are also available.
