The 50:50 Draw
Back in 2018 is the 50:50 Draw where one lucky person could win up to $5,000 on game day! The proceeds of every ticket purchased enter into a jackpot, then a random ticket is selected to win 50% of the prize pool! Make sure you get your tickets early - sales will close when the prize pool reaches $10,000, or at the start of the final quarter. Buy your tickets online here or keep an eye out for roaming sellers in bright pink from the gate opening time!

General admission members
General admission members including 3-game, 11-game GA, country, flexi and interstate have access to this match, even if the game is declared a sellout.

General admission memberships are subject to capacity on the day. A minimum number of seats and standing room positions are always held for general admission members, but should this number be reached, no further general admission members will be able to enter the ground.

The club recommends general admission members arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Western stand guest passes are also available to purchase for Essential Platinum, Essential Gold and Adelaide Oval 22- game member via the Ticketek website.

Parking, transport and security

Security
Adelaide Oval patrons are being advised to arrive early for all future events due to an increase in security measures. 

Additional security staff and search technology will be present at entrance gates and other key locations by the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority. Patrons are being asked to remember five key things ahead of their next visit to Adelaide Oval: 

1. Arrive early: 
Increased security measures will have an impact on the time taken to admit patrons into the stadium. Please allow an extra 20 minutes and don't leave your arrival to the last minute. 
2. Be patient: 
Security inspections take time, so please understand it will likely take a little longer to move people into the stadium. 
3. Limit the number of bags you bring: 
Each bag has to be inspected, so the more you bring the longer it will take. Please prepare your bags for inspection by staff. 
4. Cooperate with staff at all times: 
Adelaide Oval's security and event staff are doing an important job, so please help them by being cooperative at all times. 
5. Be the stadium's eyes and ears: 
If you see something you think is suspicious, immediately inform Adelaide Oval staff or police. 

Adelaide Oval - Card ONLY
Adelaide Oval wish to advise patrons that food and beverage outlets now accept payment by card only. This assists with speed of service and also reflects the strong consumer trend towards increased use of ‘tap and go’ payment facilities. All credit, debit and EFTPOS cards are accepted and all are exempt of surcharges. Patrons attending Adelaide Oval with cash only will be able to exchange it for a complimentary ‘Cash Card’ via Card Exchange booths located around the stadium. Any un-used ‘Cash Card’ credit can be used at future events or redeemed in full at any time. 

Festival Plaza Redevelopment
If you're heading to the footy at Adelaide Oval this weekend, here are some tips to help you get around during the Festival Plaza redevelopment:
- Allow extra time - arrive at least one hour before the game
- If you're arriving by train, the northern entrance of the Adelaide Railway Station will be closed. Please use the North Terrace exit instead or better yet, join us on the March down King William Road!
- The shortcut via Station Road is also currently closed

Road Closures
War Memorial Drive will be closed from several hours before the game starts.

For further information about road closures and parking restrictions, please see here.

Parking
There is extremely limited parking available at Adelaide Oval. However, the club has partnered with UPark to offer members a bargain season footy parking pass at selected UPark locations, starting at just $88 – click here for more info.

Transport
The MAC Footy Express will again operate in 2018 to Adelaide Oval and is free on game day for supporters with a membership card or game day ticket.

MAC Footy Express services make things easy for you and will get you to and from the game safely and conveniently. So leave the car at home and get a free ride to the game.
