Adelaide Oval, Adelaide

One of the country’s most iconic sporting venues, Adelaide Oval holds an elevated status as the home of cricket and Australian rules football in South Australia. Imposing and white-roofed, the stadium towers above the leafy suburb of North Adelaide. Constructed in 1871, the 2012 redevelopment of Adelaide Oval brought the historic stadium in line with the modern demands of large sporting venues. The stadium often hosts concerts, with artists such as Elton John, Madonna, and Fleetwood Mac having performed there.

  • Awesome saw Phil Collins, Not Dead Yet, his son played drums - mighty talented! Good songs excellent singing good show! The show was five star Adelaide oval needs more width between rows though. It'd be nice when it's cold lol! Otherwise amenities were great and staff polite.
  • Saw the Adelaide Strikers T20 cricket, it was the best night out and an electric atmosphere. Its the best stadium in Australia, functional and architecturally beautiful as well. Take the tour and climb the roof if you want to have a better look around Adelaide Oval.
  • Coming from India, this is by far the best stadium I have been in terms of facilities for spectators.. it's just world class . Although it is close to 40 degree temperature, it's hardly feels so with the giant fans on the roof.. Truly spectacular..
  • A world class sports stadium with easy to navigate facilities and a beautiful playing field. The grass seating area is a great touch for families and adds to the beauty of the oval. I cannot forget to mention the historic cricket scoreboard which is very well maintained and really brings out the sporting history at the Adelaide oval. Adelaide Oval is one of the best stadiums in the world.
  • Don't go to an evening game on the East side (facing West) without sunglasses and sunscreen. I almost fried when I was there for a cricket match. However, the stadium is really well-kept and in a really cool area. My sister-in-law's wedding was there in the conference room behind the luxury boxes and it was really cool, too. Great view of the big church nearby and cool atmosphere.
