South Adelaide Panthers Football Club are a football (soccer) club from the southern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. Panthers play in the FFSA South Australian Premier League. Their home ground is at the O'Sullivan Beach Sports Complex, known affectionately as Panther Park.


One of the youngest clubs in the FFSA league. The club was founded in August 1997 to provide opportunities for the advancement to senior level for players associated with the South Adelaide Colts Club. The club was originally an attempt to utilise and dominate the south as Noarlunga United and Seaford had limited success despite good youth talent in the area. although they were initially successful many player disputes with management led to much of the youth telent obtained leaving before playing much first team football for the club. The Panthers F.C. as they are affectionatly known are the hated rivals of Noarlunga United as a result of player movements, transfer plolitics and club proximity.

When the club was formed it was jointly owned by the Sporting Star and South Adelaide Colts. The club's initial games were played at the Cove Sports Community Centre - a ground known for its heavy winds. The club has since moved to the O'Sullivan Beach Sports Complex.

The Panthers have fielded young teams in the SASF 2nd Division. After initially struggling the Panthers have steadily improved to become a regular mid table side in the 2nd Division (called the Premier League). The Panthers are currently coached by Aldo Maricic.

In 2008 the club debuted a tourneament to mark the passing of Tony Macentagert a club president at the time which they named after him inviting local teams from the area. Included were Seaford Rangers F.C., Noarlunga United F.C. and Hallet Cove F.C.(amatuer club). South Adelaide beat Noarlunga on penalties in the inaugrial tourneamnet and hope to make it an annual event.
