Unley Oval says
Unley Oval, is a multi-use stadium in Unley, an inner southern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It is used for lower-grade South Australian Grade Cricket League matches, but its main use is as the home ground for the Sturt Football Club in the South Australian National Football League .HistoryThe stadium has a capacity of 15,000 people, with seating for up to 2,000. Its record crowd is 24,000 (estimated) attending a SANFL match between Sturt and Norwood on 9 June 1924 - at the time the highest for any suburban oval in Adelaide. The highest verified attendance was 22,015 for a league game against Port Adelaide during the 1968 season. This would stand as the record SANFL attendance at a suburban ground until 22,738 saw Port Adelaide play Norwood at Port's home ground Alberton Oval in 1977.Unley Oval was the venue of one first-class match between South Australia and Lord Hawke's XI in 1903; until 2013, it was the only first class match that South Australia had ever hosted away from Adelaide Oval. The match itself was remarkable: South Australia won by 97 runs after following on, and two different bowlers (George Thompson and Henry Hay) took nine-wicket innings hauls.
