ONE MUST PLAY
FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME

Ludendum gratia amoris est

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Kaurna people, the traditional custodians whose ancestral lands we play and gather on. We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of the Kaurna people to country and we respect and value their past, present and ongoing connection to the land and cultural beliefs. We pay respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

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. 101 Premierships/IV Championships (including 28 in division 1) are a testament to that.

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 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 LIKE TO BE SOCIAL

“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”.
