Adelaide Stadium....card only

Post by bayman on Tue Jan 09, 2018 5:53 pm

I’ve gone to the cricket today & watched an incredible finish to the womens big bash, I head out to buy some food & am told card only, well I do not possess any credit cards & being a diabetic I need food & as I was feeling a bit light headed I needed a sugar boost too, so I’ve got into my car went to a fast food place to get something for my condition before it worsened, I’m now home & ok but unless Glenelg are playing I will never go to any other sport or concerts again, what the hell is wrong with cash ? I’m just thankful I didn’t have a diabetic attack at the Stadium

Seeing I’m diabetic ( I’m having issues right now new diabetes drugs ) not quite the same re the card . Your talking about Glenelg oval I think .
Adelaide oval one finals series I was almost stopped taking subway into the oval . I said I am diabetic I need to eat better food than you sell here he wasn’t going to allow me in until another red coat said I could .
These days I now buy something there suburbs nope take my subway wrap in .

There are cash exchange points at various points at the ground. Up on level 5 of the Riverbank Stand they're in the Lindsay Head Terrace.

There's also signs everywhere on level 5 of the Riverbank Stand advising that all outlets on that level are card only, and that cash exchange points are available.

Well why wouldn’t the girl tell me that ? I was already light headed & knew I needed food & something sweet in the next 20 minutes or I was in trouble....why is it a “card only” venue? I can only think it must be because money went missing, anyway I won’t be back there for cricket, 8 hours is too risky health wise for me.....there should be two options, card AND CASH

I'm with you Bayman. I think its a way for you to buy more there and not realize you have spent all your more til the card statement comes in. I book most of my purchases on card but like to keep it in check so I carry cash to keep budget under control. AO is becoming elitist. Taxpayer paid for it but the corporates get all the benefits. I like the MCG much better. Better outlets, pay cash if you want and MUCH cheaper for products.

Probably saves the SMA on Armorguard type costs and would be considered a quicker way of processing a high volume of sales I would imagine.

Also safer for staff.

Not that you'd expect anyone to rob an outlet, but having a few thousand in each till is a risk. Card only transactions removes this risk.

Totally different but similar I talk to the boss of the cafeteria at the senior college im studying at . She told me end of the day it’s easier to do card sales than cash sales .
So it could be easier for Adelaide oval to use careless system

As I said earlier had the girl told me that then no problems & she could have clarified it as well because I told her I don’t even own a credit card, it cost me $26.00 to go to the cricket & I saw the majority of the womens match & the men’s on tv.....plus I don’t like the concrete jungle it has become

Appreciate the tip but there is no point in me getting a card to use once or twice a year, for shopping, takeaway or gambling i only need & use cash, if a card is needed for in this case going to the cricket i give my mother the cash & she uses her card to purchase the initial ticket...my quip about the $26.00 you missed, it was because i paid it & ended up watching on tv......i could not possibly stay there another 5 or 6 hours as i knew i needed food & sugar & as Mickyj or any diabetic would tell you that it is very dangerous to ignore the obvious warning signs......by the way i don't want my $26.00 back i just wish they had like most business' cash or card, anyway except for SANFL finals i will not be back as my experience was ruined

Bayman is correct about the not feeling right he’d need to watch his sugars .
I need to watch mine .

Bayman, you don't appear to have received much sympathy on this forum. the old "customer is always right" has disappeared from our society.

That’s true goddy11
If Bayman had a diabetic turn got injured and sued the SMA all heck would have gone down .
Perhaps Bayman send the sma a letter or email so you’ve got proof that you’ve told them of their staff who don’t care .

Doubt it mate - The argument would be "if you're dependent on something, why didn't you have it beforehand or bring it with you". The bars operate with a legal method of tender, so they would be safe.

Good reply but as I found out at Adelaide oval you may take plastic bottles in .
Food could be a no no
But what you don’t understand normal or non diabetic people can do what you write .
Diabetic people may be ok 4 to 5 hours between food
You just need one of those days bang your in trouble
When I was really bad I took jelly beans everywhere including to work that didn’t go down well but if you need to keep sugar handy just in case then you do .
I think here if the oval allows food like my subway wrap in no problem
But they have restrictions
Yes they sell food most of which I for health reasons can’t touch

Your other part eat before you go I do I eat breakfast and a banana at morning tea time .
But to go and watch seconds and a league game kind of got to eat I eat subway and nuts . Suburban grounds no issue I can take stuff in
Adelaide oval nope

I wasn’t looking for sympathy, I was just stating what the situation is because it possibly could help others in the future & as I said had I been told you could exchange cash for a stadium card then no problem, I wasn’t told & therefore for health reasons I left, parents who let their diabetic children go to any events there can explain to them they have too exchange money for a card

You can bring your own food and drink to Adelaide Oval.
