The highlights of every autumn and winter for many in South Australia’s capital city are the footy games played at Adelaide Oval. Well, that’s not entirely true as many are solely focused on getting Adelaide Crows Tickets and would never attend a Port Adelaide game there unless it’s a Showdown game, widely referred to as the sport’s greatest rivalry. As expected, tickets for Showdown games are in high demand.
Those who pick up these football tickets get to enjoy a trip to one of the most spectacular stadiums in Australian sport, a historic venue that has been in use since 1871. Today, it is mostly used for football and cricket matches while soccer, rugby union and rugby league contests are also played here on occasion.
The club has had quite a history as well even though it is a bit newer than the facility that the team plays in. Most notably, the Crows claimed Premiership glory in 1997 and 1998, winning the Grand Final those two years. Of course, the club’s devoted supporters are hoping of a return to those glory days in 2017, and it just might happen.
The fan base that the Crows enjoy is quite significant among AFL clubs as they became the first in league history to surpass the 50,000-member mark. That occurred in 2006 while the membership count surpassed 68,000 for the first time earlier this year. And they’re among the league’s most passionate fans too, making the game day experiences quite fun as everybody excitedly makes their way to the stadium and then cheers their team on.
Taylor Walker may be the most beloved Australian Crows player. He has played with the club since 2009 and has been the team’s captain since the 2015 campaign. The Broken Hill native even comforted a crying girl prior to a game in 2015. Some of the Crows’ other popular players include Rory Sloane and Eddie Betts.
