Adelaide UnitedAdelaide United joined the A-League in its inaugural 2005-06 season, after being formed at the beginning of the final NSL season. They are regarded as one of the more consistent A-League clubs, securing two championships and a record two FFA Cup triumphs.

The Reds recovered from a rough start to the season – where they won just one of their first six matches – to qualify for the A-League finals in fifth position. They struck first in their elimination final with Melbourne Victory, but two late goals to the home side saw them run out 2-1 victors and bring Adelaide’s season to a close.

With quality acquisitions in the offseason offset by some big-name departures, the South Australians are predicted to be a finals contender – but the jury is out as to whether they can do any more damage than that.
