Davo's venue guide

ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Adelaide Oval

  • Capacity: 25,000
  • Home team: Southern Redbacks
  • Other info: The ground was built 132 years ago

  • Excuse me for getting all emotional about Adelaide, but it is the hometown of Davo and his clan.

    The Adelaide Oval has witnessed some classic encounters over the years, but mostly in cricket and Aussie Rules - the staple diet of South Australian sporting fans.

    But they take to any quality sporting action and will support the Wallabies in droves when they face Namibia on 25 October.

    Set in the beautiful parklands on the bank of the River Torrens just north of the city, the Adelaide Oval is a top spot for the avid spectator.

    Fixtures
    25 Oct: Australia v Namibia (Pool A)
    26 Oct: Argentina v Ireland (Pool A)
