Adelaide Crows

Adelaide CrowsOne of two AFL teams based in South Australia, the Adelaide Crows entered the AFL in 1991. They then enjoyed terrific success in the late 90s, winning back-to-back AFL flags in 1997 and 1998. After playing at Football Park for most of their history, the Crows moved to the Adelaide Oval in 2014.

Adelaide enjoyed a very successful season in 2017 – winning 16 games to finish atop the ladder. The Crows dispatched of Greater Western Sydney in their qualifying final and outclassed Geelong in the preliminary, but were no match for Richmond in the grand final – going down by 48 points to finish 2017 as runners-up.

Without any huge losses from their minor premiership-winning side of 2017, coupled with the addition of superstar Carlton midfielder Bryce Gibbs, the Crows are one of the hot favourites to taste premiership glory in 2018.
