Inaugurated in 1877, Alberton Oval is a massive stadium that boasts a capacity of 15000 plus. Alberton Oval is more than a century old and it was initially constructed for cricket matches but it soon became popular for football. It hosted Port Adelaide Football Club's debut game in 1880 and hence the team holds the Alberton Oval in very high regards. Alberton Oval has witnessed many records being built and broken on its pitch and albeit an old stadium it has improvised from time to time to keep pace with its modern counterparts all across the state. During football and cricket season, this is one place every sports fan must explore while touring Adelaide.
