Don’t have Matildas’ tickets? Here’s the best events and places to watch the game in Adelaide

This Friday the CommBank Matildas are set to alight Adelaide Oval for the first time in history, as they face China PR. With tens of thousands set to fill the stadium in the sold-out match, plenty of amazing venues will be welcoming fans to view the game, or ready to host you for a pre or post-match bevvy and bite to eat. There will also be free transport to and from the city for fans holding valid match day tickets starting from 4pm until the conclusion of the last service.

With the match kicking off at 7:40pm, we’ve compiled a list of where to enjoy the evening if you don’t have tickets, or if you’re looking for pre or post match bevvies.

The Tillies Bar in Rundle Mall

For the sold-out game, Rundle Mall will be hosting a live viewing in their pop up Tillies Bar, where fans can don their finest green and gold whilst soaking in all the excitement.

For those who missed out on snapping up tickets, this is the perfect time to bring your mates and cheers together and watch as our beloved Tillies dominate on field. The match will be shown live, on the big screen in the Gawler Place Canopy and Blend Etiquette will be providing the drinks. The bar will be open from 11:00am so get in early and score a seat. There will also be a DJ playing tunes before the game.
