Adelaide Oval is the primary sports ground in Adelaide hosting cricket, AFL, football (soccer) and NRL as well as various other forms of entertainment concerts. The ground was established in 1871 and is regarded as one of the most picturesque cricket venues in the world. The oval is located in the parklands, just north of the city centre, overlooking the River Torrens and the charming Adelaide city skyline.
The capacity of the Ground has changed many times over the years as the oval has been upgraded but it is currently 25,000. This will change rapidly as the ground is in a stage of re-development. The Western, Eastern and Southern stands are all being newly developed to deliver a world class 21st century sports venue.
At the present time, only the western stand is completed with work having commenced on the Southern and Eastern ends. Once Adelaide Oval is finished it will be able to host close to 55,000 people, and it will become one of the largest stadiums in the country.

Who should go?
The Adelaide oval has something to offer for everyone whether it is sports or music.
How to get there:
Public transport options to the Adelaide oval are limited at the moment because of its awkward location in the parklands. The State Government is putting together a comprehensive, transport strategy to make it easier and more convenient for people to travel to a fully redeveloped Adelaide Oval.
