Noarlunga Oval

Alan Hickinbotham Oval (originally Noarlunga Oval) is an Australian rules football oval in Noarlunga Downs, South Australia, a southern suburb of Adelaide. It has been the home of South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club South Adelaide Football Club since 1995.

The stadium has a capacity of 12,000 people, with seating for up to 1,000. Its record crowd is 10,123 attending an SANFL match between South Adelaide and Glenelg on 6 May 1995 - the first SANFL match played at the venue.

The venue was re-named from Noarlunga Oval to Alan Hickinbotham Oval in 2005 to honour former Panther and successful property developer Alan Hickinbotham.

In late 2010 the SAFC installed light towers at the oval with the intent to host night SANFL games at the venue. The first official SANFL night game was played at the oval on May 14, 2011 with home team South Adelaide defeating rivals Sturt.
