Owner description: Adelaide Oval is widely regarded as one of the most picturesque sporting grounds in the world. Home to cricket, football, concerts, functions and major events.

The Adelaide Oval is still the best sporting venue in Australia for mine. No doubt there will be some inconvenience this summer, as teh new stand is completed, but if the Western Stand is anything to go by, it will be awesome when it is complete. The Members area is fantastic, not only for cricket and football (SANFL only at this stage), but concerts as well (we saw the Fooeys earlier in the year & that was awesome, sun setting over the old scoreboard).

Only 1 complaint - they don't sell Coopers beer :-(

Scenic Adelaide Oval has been the setting for a great number of sporting events. From local football Aussie style for decades, AFL at times, Rugby in the heady days of the Adelaide Rams, soccer locally and internationally, and of course the home of Cricket here in South Australia. The HILL is historic and will continue to hold its position as the cornerstone of cricket in Adelaide. Many tests have been held there and every country that plays here is thrilled to play at the historic ground. New redevelopments will only make it even greater.

First time I went to the oval was for an Adelaide Utd Football match, against Sydney on John Kosminas first return to Adelaide as an opposing coach, and the atmosphere was flat to say the least. I will not return unless the tickets I get are free.

I di return to the oval for the Foo fighters concert and that was excellent. Drinks and concessions were poorly managed but the concert itself was great

There is nothing like going to the cricket and sitting on the 'hill' enjoying a bevvie with mates. Alternatively the members stand is quite an experience in itself... Pimms anyone?

traffic is difficult in the area, no public access at the moment. It will be a world-class venue when finished.
