Tickets to the highly anticipated Matildas v China at Adelaide Oval will go on sale this week.

Football Australia, in collaboration with the State Government, have secured Adelaide Oval as the venue for an international friendly clash against China on Friday, May 31st, with kick-off scheduled for 7:40 PM.

Mark your calendars as tickets for this historic match go on sale, exclusively for Football Australia Football Account holders on Friday, March 8th, followed by general public release on March 12th, 2024 via Ticktek.

With ticket prices starting at $20 for Juniors, $25 for Concessions, $35 for Adults, and Family Tickets beginning at $90, securing your spot at Adelaide Oval promises an unforgettable experience.

Scheduled in the prime time Friday night slot, this match presents a unique opportunity for football enthusiasts to catch Australia’s beloved women’s national football team live in action before they head to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. With the CommBank Matildas riding high on their recent success at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, stadiums across Australia have been witnessing sold-out crowds, and the showdown at Adelaide Oval is expected to be no exception.

The last time the CommBank Matildas graced South Australian soil was during a friendly against Chile in November 2019, drawing a record attendance of 10,342 at Hindmarsh Stadium. Now, with their return to the state’s premier sporting venue, anticipation is soaring.

“Off the back of their incredible performance in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the CommBank Matildas are the hottest ticket in the country, so this is a significant coup for our state,” Premier Peter Malinauskas said.

“The CommBank Matildas have packed stadiums in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane and now it is South Australia’s turn to host them at our world class Adelaide Oval.

“This will be one of the last opportunities for fans to see the CommBank Matildas play before the Olympics, so I’d encourage everyone to book their tickets fast because they will be in high demand.”

Beyond the thrill of the game itself, this event promises a significant economic boost for South Australia. Set against the backdrop of the onset of winter, traditionally a quieter period for tourism, the match is poised to attract visitors to the city, injecting vibrancy into the local economy.

Hosting China’s women’s football team further adds to the allure, spotlighting South Australia in one of its key tourism markets. Recent data underscores the significance of Chinese visitors, who contributed $77 million to the state’s economy in the year ending September 2023, solidifying their position as the fourth-largest market.

“Major events like this put South Australia in the international spotlight and showcase our beautiful state to the world while boosting South Australian businesses,” Minister for Tourism Zoe Bettison said.

“There’s no doubt the CommBank Matildas have inspired the nation with their exciting brand of football and I’m so excited that Adelaide gets a chance to host them before they head to Paris for their Olympic campaign.

“Their visit to South Australia is not only good for the fans but also good for the tourism sector, as people flock to the city booking out accommodation and hospitality venues and the eyes of one of our key markets are on our state.”

Recalling China’s last appearance in Adelaide, a sold-out match against England during the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the event garnered unprecedented viewership in China, with 53.9 million tuning in to witness the action unfold.
