A Gem of a tour
Oct. 2021 • Friends
This is such a gem of a tour. Highly recommended.
We should be so proud of this amazing stadium.
Such a good value tour as well. Even if you are not a sports fan it is interesting & the volunteer tour guide. Bob, was awesome.

Pretty Good Stadium
May 2021
well i have attended every Adelaide Crows Game since it was renovated and a few port games Its a nice stadium not as good as optus stadium in perth but one of the better in australia the only downside is the criminal prices for food and drink you defiantly dont get what you pay for and you really should just bring food and drink from home if you are going to a sports game or concert at adelaide oval
or if you are going to buy food and drink and god forbid alcohol at adelaide oval it would be wise to refinance you're home first

its okay
Apr. 2021
for a new stadium it lacks so much. The seat are pathetic price of tickets seats could be much better. The food facilities are under staffed and don't allow for a good flow for quick service. The most frustrating to line up for 15 mins only to get third from service to be told they ran out f beer then have to line up again at another bar. Not good enough

Heart of a genteel city
May 2021
Adelaide is said to be a "city of parks and churches." It'a a city with a genteel culture. This certainly matches the Adelaide Oval, which is said to be the most attractive sporting venue in Australia. Adelaide Oval has held Test matches against England for many years. The games against the English tourists are a feature of the Australian summer.

Australia's most beautiful stadium
May 2021
Adelaide Oval has the reputation for being Australia's most most beautiful stadium. Rather than being a coloseum like the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), it resembles an English county cricket ground. Its main functions are to host Test cricket and Australian Football League (AFL) matches. Following the recent upgrade, it is certainly more attractive for spectators. This year, the Oval will host an Ashes Test with England, amongst other games. By the way, the scoreboard is a well-known feature of the Oval. Entering the ground may take longer than previously due to Covid precautions.

Picturesque and Historic
May 2021
Travelled to Adelaide for my first visit to the famous oval for a football match. There were long queues outside the ground with covid restrictions, but the flow was good. Once inside, the setup was very impressive but our seating was at the ground level which makes it difficult to tell what is happening at the other end. The price of $89 for a basic seat was also extremely expensive. It was well worth a visit to see the oval from the inside but wouldn't go again due to the price and viewing options.

Great game of footy!
May 2021
Great venue, we had the best seats, however the price of refreshments is ridiculously high! Also I think the seats are too small and too close together at $90 a ticket which is what we paid I think they should offer a bit more comfort!

Showdown!
May 2021 • Solo
Port Adelaide sure know how to put on a show, I think that might be half the reason their diehard supporters go every week and that’s a great thing!
I found it a little tricky finding my seat but staff were happy to help.
Food and beverages are extremely expensive and stalls aren’t manned with enough staff meaning long queues but I did go on the busiest night Adelaide Oval sees during the AFL season.

Staff were very curt with patrons refusing to wear a mask when having left their seat which was good to see as social distancing was impossible.
