The SA Athletics Stadium at Mile End, hosts a range of events including school carnivals, athletics competitions and training  for all ages, and soccer games. 

Athletics SA received a Special Purpose Grant in 2013 -14 to develop detailed design work for enhancing spectator viewing and accomodation of visiting teams and schools for all types of events.

This grant also delivered works including:

  • 196 new seats undercover and adjacent to the main grandstand
  • upgrade of the eastern spectator tiers, providing  6 tiers with easier access and improved shaded areas
  • turf regeneration
  • upgrade of the athlete marshalling area adjacent to the 200m start.

Another second grant in 2015 through the State Facilities Fund will include a further 135 meters of tiers and shaded areas being improved.  Completion is projected for January 2016 in readiness for the Adelaide Track Classic in Feburary 2016.
