Global Stadium Awards recognise A-League Grand Final as ‘Event of the Year’
The 2016 A-League Grand Final at the Adelaide Oval has been recognised as 'Event of the Year' at the Global Stadium Awards – the only Australasian nominee to secure an award at a presentation overnight in the Irish capital of Dublin.
Presented during The StadiumBusiness Summit at Dublin’s famous Croke Park, Adelaide Oval claimed the international award for the Event of the Year for the 2016 Hyundai A-League Grand Final between Adelaide United and the Western Sydney Wanderers.
The event overcame tough competition including Allianz Stadium’s Sydney 7s event, a boxing world title fight at Goodison Park in Liverpool and big ticket events in Twickenham Stadium (UK), Levi’s Stadium (USA) and Estadio Azteca (Mexico).
Adelaide Oval SMA Chief Executive Andrew Daniels, who was in Dublin to accept the award, stated “we’re delighted the hosting of the Hyundai A-League Grand Final has been recognised on the global stage, not only because it was a brilliant event but also because it underlines Adelaide Oval’s credentials in terms of the world game.
“We have now hosted the likes of Liverpool, two World Cup qualifying games and a number of A-League games including the final and each has been an outstanding soccer event in its own right.
“It’s a credit to Damian Hough and our grounds crew as well as our entire team for the practiced way in which the Oval is able to seamlessly switch between events and bring the best of everything to Adelaide.”
More than 51,000 fans packed out Adelaide Oval to see Adelaide United take out the A-League title with a convincing 3-1 win over the Western Sydney Wanderers.
Now in their eighth year, The StadiumBusiness Awards recognise leadership, innovation and achievement in the delivery, operation and management of sports facilities globally.
Adelaide Oval has now received 43 State, national and international awards since its redevelopment.
