2000 fans will be allowed to attend an AFL match on Saturday between the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide.
Strict measures have been put in place, with people to be spread out across three grandstands, sitting in alternate rows with at least three seats apart. Another 240 corporate partners can attend private rooms.
“The first time we’ve had a significant crowd at any sporting event in Australia for months and months and months,” South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said.
1475 of the tickets will be given to Port Adelaide members, 475 to Adelaide Crows Members and 50 to Adelaide Oval ticket holders, chosen by ballots.
Greater Western Sydney expects to receive the same NSW Government approval as the NRL to host fans in corporate boxes.
Seven and FOX Footy are both using virtual crowd noises for other matches.
