i'm making a rare appearance.....Grand Final weekend is the same weekend that Australia play India

as for the question i keep hearing it is Thebarton Oval because its neutral & in close proximity of the city

i have a far more better option for a Grand Final, this arena will hold substantially more people than Thebarton would, is in close proximity of the city with plenty of public transport options & has been an SANFL ground in the past......




my option is the Wayville Showgrounds

your thoughts please.....

Why not since Adelaide Oval isn't available and there is no show this year

Im thinking the actual surface at the showgrounds would be way to small.

I did see a footy game there many years ago as a one off.
The track around the edge would be the main issue as it reduces the ground dimensions from what a normal sized ground needs.

Whether enlarging it is feasible, I don't know, but otherwise it has all the facilities you would need I guess. Not sure about its overall patron capacity. But not many options exist now.

I guess a crowd of 30,000 is going to be difficult anywhere other than AO.

Good to hear form you Bayman...come back more often! Smile

I've been an advocate for a late season Friday night game at Wayville for years - held during the first Friday night of the Royal Show to capture a captive audience full of the demographic the league needs to capture - the youth market. It would be a perfect chance to take the game to the people rather than wait for them to come to the product.

That opportunity doesn't exist this year BUT the overall idea of Bayman's is good. There are certain logistical issues in terms of oval sizing (as Chambo mentioned above) but with no Show being held this year - this could be an opportunity to sort the turf/oval issue with widening the ground slightly without any worry about impinging on the existing gravel track going around the circuit affecting Show activities (eg the Stunt Cars). A central location with plenty of standing room and grandstands as well as food outlets already on site. Not sure of how much room under the stands for changing rooms etc but that could easily be adapted in the near vicinity. Car parking is ample across Greenhill Road also.

An excellent substitute venue to consider at the very least.

Definitely worth the consideration.
According to AusStadiums website 15 years ago its measurements were 191 x 104

The talk is Thebarton oval, that’d be a “one off” too

After studying at Thebarton senior college in 2017/18 they’d need to improve the car parking around Thebarton oval . Most of the streets there is very limited parking .

If it is just one week they are out of whack to have the GF at Adelaide Oval, could they not just schedule a mid-week round and have the GF a week earlier, so it can be played at Adelaide Oval? Saturday Round, then Wednesday night Round, then Sunday Round?

The T20 World Cup is now postponed.

This should see the Australia v India T20 series shifted a month, clearing the way for the SANFL GF to be at Adelaide Oval.

Here's a thought.

With next week's Port Prelim (Friday Night) and then a SANFL GF (Sunday), will the SMA have time to do a clean of the stadium to the standards that venues / facilities need to do? IE Surfaces etc.

They are essentially going to have 24 hours to do this.

I confess to being a bit lost in the shifting sands of Covid precautions that facilities need to maintain.

They’ll have the cleaners go through it Friday night after the match, it’ll be ready for sure
