Following State Government and SA Health’s announcement of eased restrictions for South Australia, Adelaide United is excited to confirm Coopers Stadium attendances will be at 75% capacity for the start of the A-League 2020/21 season.
In welcomed news for the Club, its players, coaches, members, and the South Australian football community more broadly, over 12,000 people will have the opportunity to watch the Reds at Coopers Stadium when the team takes the pitch for the first time at home against Melbourne City on Sunday, 3 January 2021.
Adelaide United Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Kosmina, said: “The recent easing of restrictions by State Government and SA Health is terrific news for our members, fans, and corporate partners.
“It will have been 294 days since we last played a competitive game at Coopers Stadium, so to welcome back up to 12,375 Adelaide United fans on January 3rd is going to be a very special occasion for the club and for football in South Australia.
“What’s equally exciting is that our dedicated members who have renewed their commitment to the Club will be guaranteed their same seats for the upcoming season.
“And for those who are yet to do so, now is the best time to get on board as, on the back of a very productive pre-season, the team is well positioned for success in 20/21.
“Of course, patrons should expect necessary health and self-hygiene requirements at Coopers Stadium, but these will be in-line with SA Health guidelines.”
Adelaide United will commence its 2020/21 campaign away from home against Western United on Monday, 28 December, before returning to South Australia to host the aforementioned Melbourne City at Coopers Stadium on Sunday, 3 January.
