World’s first Day-Night Test matchHistory will be made at Adelaide Oval when Australia takes on New Zealand in the world’s first international Day-Night Test match from today.

 

Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said good tickets were still available for the significant cricketing milestone.

 

“This is an historic occasion for international cricket and very fitting it’s at Adelaide Oval – one of the world’s best grounds,” Mr Bignell said.

 

“Cricket fans from all over the world will be watching Adelaide to see the Kookaburra pink ball used for the first time at international level.

 

“Our state’s reputation for staging world-class sporting events at Adelaide Oval continues to grow.

 

“It’s been a massive year at the Oval with the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, Liverpool Football Club exhibition match and AFL matches, not to mention all the incredible concerts.

 

“The World Cup alone pumped about $80 million into the state’s economy and attracted nearly 34,000 international tourists.

 

“Our hotel, hospitality, small business and taxi industries are feeling the flow on benefits once again.

 

“More than 60 per cent of public pre-purchased tickets for the Day-Night match have been sold to fans from interstate and overseas.

 

“This Test is about making cricket more accessible for fans and it has been structured to
accommodate spectators.

 

“The second session of the match will start at 4.30pm and the third begins after dinner at 7pm so there is still plenty of action for those who are arriving in the afternoon.

 

Tickets still available today include twilight tickets – with access to the ground from 4pm – at a reduced price.
