The Adelaide University Football Club (AUFC) is The World’s Greatest Football Club and is considered to be the largest and most successful amateur FC in Australia.

We are highly successful

The Blacks have an unsurpassed record in Australian amateur football history. 84 flags (including 28 in division 1) are a testament to that. 

We are a community

We find that those who come to the club inevitably stay: the world’s greatest football club does tend to provide a rather compelling environment. It is a place where you make friends for life.

We promote diversity

We are a proud part of the Adelaide University sporting community, however, membership is not confined to those studying at the University of Adelaide. All are eligible and all are welcome!

We like the social life

“If winning is all there is, we want no part of it”, a phrase famously coined by AUFC living legend, Chocka Bloch. Chocka once also described the footy club as “a social club loosely based around football”.

The Legend: Bob Neil #130

Bob Neil started as a player with the Blacks in the 1970s, later becoming a coach and committee member. But it was during the 1986 Amateur League Grand Final that his name first achieved legend status, when a chant of “Bobby Neil! Bobby Neil!”, was used to spur the Blacks on to victory. Soon his name began appearing all over Adelaide – on banners and over the loudspeakers at Adelaide Oval – and later, the world. When a ‘Bob Neil’ banner was spotted at an Aussie Rules match at The Oval, London, he had ceased being a cult figure and had transformed into a phenomenon.
