Adelaide’s scoreboard has always been admired for its elegant simplicity and efficiency. And it’s not as if the new stadium lacks the latest in digital screens. As a number of people have observed, at least the old scoreboard provides constant, reliable information and is mercifully free of the flashy advertising and gratuitous messaging of its digital companion. Effective and iconic, the old board looks like it has at least another century in it. It was first heritage listed by the National Trust in 1984 and added to the State Heritage Register in 1986.
