RESERVED SEATING

Netball SA reserves the right to amend seating arrangements at its sole discretion where necessary due to stadium build changes and membership demands, or any other reason deemed necessary by Netball SA.

Members will be notified if there is a change to their seating and alternative arrangements will be made before the member is moved.

All members are given a seat at Adelaide Entertainment Centre comparable to their seat at Netball SA Stadium. This factors in membership category, proximity to aisles and number of seats in the group.

 

MEMBERSHIP ADD-ONS

Car Park – Members can purchase a discounted car park pass for $60. This is valid only for games at Netball SA Stadium.

Inner sanctum experiences – Some membership categories will have access to functions and player meet and greets. The nature of these experiences is subject to player availability and can be amended by the Adelaide Thunderbirds as needed.

 

MEMBERSHIP TRANSFER POLICY

All memberships are transferrable. If a member wishes to transfer their membership to a friend or family member to use, they are permitted to do so. The patron who uses the membership card must be in the same membership type category. (E.g., an adult must use an adult membership and a concession must provide proof of concession at the door. An adult is not permitted to use a junior ticket).

If the patron that is using the membership is not in the same category, they are able to upgrade at the ticket office. (E.g., if an adult wants to upgrade from a junior ticket to an adult ticket, they can pay to upgrade).

 

MEMBERSHIP REFUND POLICY

Netball SA will not issue refunds or credits in the case of missed games, team performance or a change in personal circumstances.

The impact of COVID-19, or any other unforeseen event, on the 2021 SSN season is currently unknown. If the season is interrupted, members will be provided a series of options relating to their 2021 membership.

Should the venue capacity at Netball SA Stadium be less than 100%, alternate measures may be put in place for members to attend games.
