Crowds & Ticketing 2021


What is the crowd capacity at SANFL grounds?
SANFL Clubs each have an SA Health-approved Covid Management Plan, permitting between approximately 3,500 and 4,500 spectators per SANFL ground, depending on the stadium capacity. This means members and supporters should not have any issue accessing most matches. For blockbuster matches, priority will be given to members.

Do I need to wear a mask at SANFL matches?
No. As SANFL matches are an outdoor activity, under each SANFL Club’s Covid Management Plan it is not a mandatory requirement from SA Health for patrons to wear a mask.

How are SANFL Clubs complying with physical distance requirements at their venues?
By limiting spectator numbers to the one person per 2 square metre rule (50% capacity), social distancing at venues can be maintained. Club officials will be present as Covid Marshals and will be ensuring patrons are complying with social distancing.

Do I need to be seated at matches or can I stand?
No, you can choose to be seated or stand, so long as you are 1.5 metres distance from other patrons who are not members of your household. Alcohol consumption whilst standing is allowed.

What do I need to do to keep myself and others safe?
We all have a part to play in keeping the community COVIDSafe:

  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell, and seek testing if you have any COVID, cold or flu symptoms
  • Wash your hands often and cover coughs and sneezes in your arm
  • Use the COVIDSafe check-in QR Code or manual register when you arrive
  • Follow the advice of all venue and club staff
  • Maintain 1.5m physical distance from others not in your household or social group

Will canteens and bars be open?
Yes. Full food and beverage services will be available on match day, ensuring an enjoyable day or night out at the footy.

I’m a member of a SANFL Club with match access, will I be guaranteed entry?
Yes. Priority will be given to Members at blockbuster matches where crowd capacity of 50 per cent may be reached. Your SANFL Club will update you prior to match day on what you need to do to ensure you gain entry.
