The Reserves start time can vary to 15 minutes earlier if there is a special occasion or presentation prior to the League match, although this would be rare. Occasionally SANFL League games are telecast on Channel 7 and occasionally this means a change in match times (usually within an hour either side).

There is usually a Reserves Curtain Raiser match – except for matches against the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Magpies.  In this instance, the Club will plan something else in place of the Reserves match (local / school / junior / Women’s game or kids clinic / junior carnival etc.).

Pedestrian gates open approximately half an hour before the Reserves match starts (11:00am on a normal day).
