Adelaide United is delighted to announce it has revamped the matchday experience for supporters with the introduction of a Fans’ Village at Coopers Stadium for the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season.
The Fans’ Village will be located next to IGA Family Park or behind the Aurelio Vidmar (Southern) Stand for all supporters to attend when gates open.
Surrounded by white picket fencing, and accompanied by music, the area will be lit up with festoon lighting to enhance the festival of football atmosphere.
Three food trucks will be within the vicinity of the village along with a PIMM’s bar marquee and Coopers Bar, accompanied with barrels and umbrellas scattered around the precinct for fans to congregate while talking about the upcoming game.
New Stadium Merchandise outlet
Thanks to Adelaide Venue Management and Coopers Stadium, we have created a new merchandise outlet located in the Western Grandstand for Reserved Ticket Holders and Members, adjacent from the Coopers 1862 Bar and near the corporate entry.
The new store will open when gates open until after the match, allowing access for general admission ticket holders as well.
Moreover, there will be a merchandise van pre-game on Manton Street, as well as a merchandise marquee inside the Manton Street entrance behind the Eastern Stand, while there will be a marquee inside the Holden Street entrance.
Other Important Information
We encourage all fans and members to arrive to the game as early as possible to minimise delays, and reduce the chance of missing kick-off.
Road closures will occur before and after the game for patron safety and consequently may impact access to the stadium and parking. Please note left hand turns from Adam Street onto Manton Street will be restricted. Also please take note of the signage located on Manton Street.
Come early so you can enjoy the Fans’ Village pre-game.
Entertainment Centre Parking – simply show your membership card or match day ticket to receive a special price of just $4.
Alternatively, the Entertainment Centre tram stop is just a few minutes walk away from the stadium while the Bowden train station, on the Grange and Outer Harbour lines, is also a short walk from Coopers Stadium.
Matchday Office Information
Adelaide United Admin Office is open all day (Week day games), until 20 mins after kick-off for any membership issues. If you are planning on coming into the office with a query, we encourage you to come as early as possible to minimise delays. Weekend and public holiday matches open hours will likely be 2 hours before gates open (TBC).
