7 Top tips for a family day at the cricket


1. Don’t get run out!

So you’re able to pick your field, don’t rely on traffic when getting to Adelaide Oval and opt for public transport. The additional buses, trams and trains will be a sea of #BlueEnergy (with some People’s Choice lime green and red of course). 

You can never arrive too early to an Adelaide Strikers home match. The Big Bash isn’t your traditional cricket. There’s music, dancers, mascots and a huge atmosphere before and during the match!

2. Want to watch from the Pavilion?

The People’s Choice Pavilion, that is. Each Strikers home match, we’ve got the best seats in the house to give away – honestly, your view would be better than the players’.

If you’re all about chilling out with included refreshments and food, and of course a VIP view of the match, make sure you’ve entered our competitions each home match to try your luck at joining us in the Pavilion!

3. Opt for the wide brim over the classic baggy green

It’s hot out in the middle and in the stands, so make sure you slip, slop, slap and slide! Opt for the wide brim hat over the classic baggy green, and slap on the zinc like the players – even pick a nice royal blue to match your gear!

While you’re dressing to cater for the heat, keep in mind that Adelaide Oval has specific dress codes. Some sections require a collared shirt and have a no thongs policy so do your homework before you arrive!

4. Keep your eye on the ball

Jake Weatherald hit 19 sixes in BBL07, with the Strikers hitting a massive 72 in total. That’s a lot of runs, but when those sixes finally come back to Earth, they’re straight into the crowd.

While you’re welcome to have a go at a catch, we recommend keeping your eyes up at all times, especially if you’re sitting in the first 20 rows. Cricket balls hurt!

5. Prepare for your innings break

The players get an innings break, why can’t you? Spectators are allowed to bring snacks into Adelaide Oval.

Leave the bigger items at home though. Eskies, cans, tins, metal and glass containers, or glass drink bottles won’t be allowed in with you. There are bag checks at all Adelaide Oval gates.

6. Get your head in the game

The Adelaide Strikers have their own phone app, with a People’s Choice Fan of the Match competition included.

Make sure you’ve downloaded it from your phone’s app store before you arrive. Entering our competition gets you into the draw to upgrade your seats to the People’s Choice Pavilion for the next match!

7. Don’t get caught behind!

If you are planning to buy food and drinks at the game remember that Adelaide Oval is a card only venue, so make sure you’ve got your People’s Choice card handy.

If you want to feel even lighter at the crease, install your phone’s digital wallet. All People’s Choice cards are eligible to use with Apple Pay, Google Pay™ and Samsung Pay to use at all EFTPOS terminals accepting Visa PayWave™.

Caught behind and left with no payments options? Make sure your PayID is setup on your People’s Choice account. Hopefully you’ve formed a solid partnership out in the middle and a mate’s willing to shout you lunch. You’ll be able to pay them back before the next one goes flying over the fence!
