- PLEASE NOTE COOPERS STADIUM IS NOW A CASHLESS VENUE.
- As the venue transitions to 100% cashless services from the start of this season, they understand the need to assist patrons with this transition. For a limited time there will be 2 cash points of sale located in the main Western Grandstand kiosk and Eastern Grandstand kiosk to assist with those customers that might bring cash. Note that this service will only operate for a few weeks and we expect service times at those outlets to be slow. This will then cease at which time purchases can only be made via major credit cards, debit cards and mobile pay. Adelaide Venue Management will absorb the standard merchant transaction fee.
