Adelaide Oval has hosted both cricket and football at the highest level since Colonial times and its iconic, historic and cultural presence remains today. Now, cricket and football are bringing the two sports together at a newly developed Adelaide Oval - delivering an internationally renowned, world-class venue for the 21st Century.

The $535 million redevelopment of Adelaide Oval into a multi-purpose stadium is set to revitalise the city’s riverbank precinct. Hames Sharley is working in a JV with Cox Architecture (lead) and Walter Brooke, and the project involves the construction of a new southern and eastern stand, and will retain the heritage scoreboard, grassed northern mound, views of the St. Peters Cathedral and the famous Moreton Bay fig trees nearby.
