In 2013, the Adelaide Titans Football Club will compete in the Premier Division (Saturday) of the South Australian Amateur Soccer League (SAASL) after gaining promotion in 2012.
The SAASL is the major organisational body for non-professional football in South Australia. With over 100 clubs, competing in 17 Divisions annually in competitions held on Saturdays and Sundays, the SAASL is South Australia’s largest management body for men’s senior level Amateur football.
The SAASL was incepted in 1965 and has clubs as far as Port Pirie in the North, Murray Bridge in the East and Victor Harbour in the South. Member clubs of the SAASL have various origins. Many of the longest standing members have their origins as factory-based teams, others originated from various sporting or social clubs, many of which represent immigrant groups. Community-based clubs are growing in numbers and clubs are being formed from the growth of senior ranks or former junior league clubs.
Our home ground is John Mitchel Reserve, Henley Beach. Located in the western suburbs only a short drive from the Adelaide CBD, our home ground is ideally located to attract players from across the Adelaide Metropolitan area.
Already for season 2013 we have attracted interest in our Club from other amateur players from within the SAASL. We also have attracted interest from current Premier League and State League players who compete in the Football Federation of South Australia’s competitions.
Currently the Adelaide Titans Football Club has more than 75 registered players. In 2013, we will be fielding a minimum of three (3) men’s teams who will be competing in senior, Reserve and C grade competitions.
Our long-term objective is to actively attract interest into our Club from players of all cultures, backgrounds and sporting levels allowing us to establish additional men’s teams as well as junior teams and women’s teams, all of whom will compete at the highest level possible.
The Adelaide Titans Football Club Inc. is a South Australian grassroots football club competing in the Premier Division (Saturday) of the South Australian Amateur Soccer League.
Our Club’s key objective is to create a community and family orientated environment in which our players, members and supporters can actively partake in the world game of football.
We strongly believe that the measure of our success, as a community and family orientated sporting club, is our ability to serve the needs of our players, members and supporters to the highest quality and provide them with the real sense that the Adelaide Titans is ‘their’ club.
We aspire to create a professionally administered club which promotes excellence in football through a culture of passion, pride, success and a united spirit.
The Adelaide Titans recognise the invaluable support which our sponsors contribute to the success of our Club on and off the field. We sincerely thank all our sponsors who have provided their commitment and support to our Club in the past and we take this opportunity to invite your organisation to be a valued sponsor.
Our Club is not merely looking to sponsors to contribute financially but we are eager to establish long lasting relationships with our sponsors. In doing so we can, through our supporter base, offer our sponsors incentives and our Club’s support of their businesses, products and services.
