Rules and Regulations

The Adelaide Bite want to create a fun, safe, and enjoyable family friendly atmosphere. 
Please help us make this possible by observing the following Rules and Regulations 

 

Alcoholic Beverages

Please have valid Photo ID available upon purchase of beverages. The Bite and ACG Security reserve the right to have fans who appear to be intoxicated removed from the stadium.


Food and Drink 
Concessions are available to purchase inside Barratt Reserve. A wide range of food and beverage options are offered. As such, outside commercial food is prohibited. Glass bottles, plastic bottles, and cans are also prohibited.

Fans who do not possess a valid ticket will be refused entrance into the park. ACG Security may conduct a visual inspection of all bags, purses, packages and jackets/coats in order to provide a safe environment for patrons at the game.

Beach balls, horns and other distracting items

Devices that may interfere with Game-day proceedings or distract athletes or any other participants, audio/visual telecast devices

Wrapped gifts and presents

The Bite will not provide storage for such items that are brought to the game and alternative storage must be arranged by individuals attending the game.


Electronic Equipment

Electronic equipment, radios and televisions are allowed in the stadium as long as they do not interfere with other fans' enjoyment of the game. Cameras (still and video) are permitted in the stadium provided they are for personal use only and do not result in obstruction of other fans' view. Tripods are prohibited. The taping of game footage and the transmission of any description or reproduction of game activity are prohibited.

 


Smoking 
Smoking is PROHIBITED everywhere inside Barratt Reserve.


Foul Balls 
Guests are welcome to keep any foul balls hit into the stands. Please do not interfere with a ball in play, especially those guests sitting at field level. Australian Baseball League rules call for the ejection of guests that interfere with a ball in play.


Re-Entry Policy 
Fans are permitted to leave and return to the premises as long as the gates are open and they get a stamp to certify their ticket possession when leaving


Safety

Safety is the most important priority for us, and The Bite will do everything in our power to assure the safety of all in attendance at Barratt Reserve.

If you transfer your tickets to someone who is unfamiliar with Barratt Reserve safety regulations, please alert them to the aforementioned guidelines in order to best prepare for game-day procedures.


General Fan Conduct

 Appearing to be intoxicated or in a diminished capacity;

Fans will be courteous to surrounding residents and businesses at any time when attending games, including upon arrival and when departing Barratt Reserve.

Only vehicles dropping off or picking up guests with disabilities will be permitted curbside at Barratt Reserve. No other vehicles are permitted curbside. The Bite reserves the right to change or modify these guidelines without notice.

Fans must not go onto the field, throw objects onto the field, or interfere with balls in play. Violation will result in immediate ejection and/or prosecution.

This ticket may not be used for advertising, promotion, or other trade purposes without the written consent of the ABL.


Official Rain Out Policy 
If a game is cancelled due to weather before the game begins, the information will be posted prominently on the home team's website. In the case of a cancelled game, patrons with pre-purchased tickets may apply for a refund or hold their tickets to use as a rain check at another game. Information will be found on the home team's website.

If a game starts but is called early due to weather - and the game has not become regulation (as per OBR 4.10c) - it is a "no game" and tickets become a rain check that can be used at another game. No refunds will be given.

If a game starts but is called early due to weather - and the game has progressed to or beyond the point of play described in 4.10c - rain checks will not be honoured and no refunds will be given (regardless of whether the game is complete or suspended).

Rain Checks may be redeemed at a game or games nominated by the ABL. The information will be posted on the home team's website.

ABL will endeavour to have resumed or rescheduled games played during the current series in progress, but without amending the previously scheduled games (ie, rescheduled game may be slotted in before the next day's scheduled game).

Rain Checks may also be accepted at other games - but this will be solely at the discretion of the ABL & Team management.

Double-headers are a single ticket event, so if one game is regulation (per OBR 4.10c), then no rain checks or refunds will be given if the second game is not played or is called before becoming regulation.


The Adelaide Bite players, coaches, and front-office thank you for your cooperation and hope you enjoy your nights out at Barratt Reserve.
