That is absolutely remarkable. I had no idea such a large scale project was being under taken.

It was perfect as it was!

It's a monstrous act of vandalism. The world's finest cricket ground being turned into a characterless football stadium. Disgraceful.

This is the vision for the new stadium.

At least they haven't blocked the view of the Cathedral out.

Clem Hill Stand and grass bank (river side) to be replaced by a large stand.

They'll be going to drop in wickets too which will further add to the loss of the Adelaide Ovals characteristics.

Not sure if this has been resolved yet but the last I heard because they new stadium will be shared with the two Adelaide football clubs, the respective members were arguing over the naming of the stands. The Bradman Stand could no longer exist and maybe named after some AFL football player that no one outside Australia has ever heard of.
