In 1871, Adelaide Oval was created after the formation of the SA Cricket Association. A few years later it hosted a Test match – the first in a fabled history.
Since then it has been a rollercoaster ride (literally for a brief period in the 1800s), with the redeveloped Oval now front and centre for AFL and top-line cricket.
Today we talk to veteran journalist Michelangelo Rucci about the tough negotiations to come between stadium managers and the AFL clubs, and hear an interview with outgoing stadium boss Andrew Daniels and his successor Nick Addison, conducted by InDaily reporter Thomas Kelsall.
