Adelaide is a destination which seamlessly transitions from a bustling hub of city activity to a focus upon outdoors lifestyle, sport and well being. Some of the Riverbank’s sporting clubs and venues are amongst the oldest in the state, while in recent times Adelaide has also welcomed our national pastime, AFL, back into the heart of the city.
Having hosted AFL and cricket since Colonial times, the iconic Adelaide Oval has been redeveloped to as world class sporting facility that pays homage to the historic and cultural roots of the arena.
With a capacity of 53 583, the Oval hosts home matches for both the Adelaide Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club, as well as Domestic T20 Cricket and International Test, One Day and T20 competitions. It is also used as an entertainment venue, having hosted the likes of the Rolling Stones and AC/DC since its redevelopment was completed in 2014.
Connected to the south bank of the Torrens by a massive 255 metre long foot bridge, Adelaide Oval is open during the day where you can take the challenge of walking on the roof of their southern and western stands, enjoy The Bradman Collection museum or take part in guided tours of the facilities.
