Please note: The Christmas Pageant is taking place on Saturday 9 November, so please plan for the city to be busier than usual and account for planned road closures. See ‘Car Parking’ below for full details, but we suggest planning to arrive before 12.30pm to avoid being caught up in the pageant activity.

Seating:
Patrons are encouraged to bring their own seating or a picnic rug as only very limited seating is available. For this match, patrons will not have access to Level 1 of the pavilion (upstairs) due to match broadcast requirements. Shade marquees will be erected around the oval, but there will be no shade on the East Hill for this match due to Cricket Australia activations.

Car Parking: 
Limited free parking is available in the north car park or Oval #2 for $8.50. Both car parks are accessible from Port Road. Note: you cannot turn right from Port Road into the Karen Rolton Oval car parks if you are heading towards the city. The car park will open from 11.00am on Saturday 9 November and from 9.00am on Sunday 10 November and will close 30 minutes after the match is completed. Alternate parking is available through various Wilson Parking locations.

Please note: The Christmas Pageant is taking place on Saturday 9 November, so please plan for the city to be busier than usual and account for planned road closures. From 12.30pm on Saturday 9 November, after the pageant ends, SAPOL will be escorting the pageant floats along West Tce and then Port Road. It will take approximately 40 minutes for the floats to pass and traffic will be impacted. We suggest planning to arrive before 12.30pm to avoid being caught up in this activity.
