Adelaide chief executive Andrew Fagan expects more than 20,000 fans will be able to attend the Crows’ Round Seven match against St Kilda.
The AFL announced earlier this month that the Club would return to SA from the Gold Coast hub and host a match at Adelaide Oval on Monday, July 20.
The Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority and health experts have been communicating with the Club to determine a maximum attendance.
“We are nearly there and expect the likely attendance will be in excess of 20,000,” Fagan told Members via email on Wednesday evening.
“In addition to finalising a structure for seating, there will also be some adjusted protocols to ensure entry and exit and movement within the venue meets all necessary requirements.”
Tickets will be allocated via a ballot for eligible members who have committed to “Stand With Us” in 2020.
“Priority will be provided to those members who have pledged their support despite the uncertainty about the season,” Fagan said.
“Not that long ago it looked unlikely we would be sharing in the excitement of a home game together but now we are confident of more matches being scheduled at Adelaide Oval in the weeks ahead.
“Further information will be provided later this week about the entry process and what steps you will need to take.”
