Riverbank Bridge

The Riverbank Bridge is open, however as a result of the construction works on the south side of the river, access will be limited.  People are encouraged to use either King William Road or the Morphett Street Bridge to access the stadium and when leaving the venue after the event, as these will be the quickest routes. You can find more information on the Adelaide Riverbank Appavailable here


While Adelaide Oval has adequate toilet facilities for a capacity crowd, there will be an additional overlay of bathrooms at the northern and southern end of the ground and behind the western stands to help cater to the large number of fans who will be seated on the Oval.


Limited parking will be available in the East Car Park and University Lane, located off Pennington Terrace.  Persons with disabled permits will be able to park in the East Car Park.
