One 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.

After a horrible follow-up to their minor premiership season, Adelaide were widely tipped to rebound last year and not only challenge for the finals, but perhaps go even further.

Instead, it proved to be another disappointing campaign for the Crows. Despite a strong 8-5 start to the year, the age of their list caught up with them as they lost seven of their last nine matches to finish 11th.

With a new coach and a heavily revamped list, most pundits think 2020 will be a year of rebuilding for Adelaide. Finals seem well off the radar, with a bottom four finish looming likely.
