War Memorial Drive, North Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
The atmosphere at the Adelaide Oval is really something to savour. It is a very family and fan friendly place to watch all sports. Steeped in tradition, there were concerns that when the South Australian Government announced a $450 million redevelopment plan for the ground, that that history would be lost. Well, fans had nothing to worry about as the works completed have transformed the stadium to true world class status. Australian sports journalist, Gerard Whately hit the nail on the head, describing the ground as “the most perfect piece of modern architecture because it’s a thoroughly contemporary stadium with all the character that it’s had in the past”.
Both of Adelaide’s AFL clubs play their home matches at the Adelaide Oval during the winter, with the Adelaide Sixers competing in the Big Bash League taking up residence in the summer. Soccer is also getting in on the act, with 2-3 A-League matches there every year, as well as hosting the Socceroos.
