The North Adelaide Football Club, nicknamed the Roosters, is an Australian rules football club currently affiliated with the South Australian National Football League (SANFL). The club plays its home games at Prospect Oval, located in Prospect, a northern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. The club was formed in 1888 as the Medindie Football Club, changing its name to North Adelaide in 1893. North Adelaide's first premiership was won in 1900, and the club has won a total of thirteen senior premierships during its time in the league, most recently in 1991.
Formed in 1888 as Medindie, in 1893 the club renamed itself to North Adelaide. It is the fourth oldest club still in operation in the SANFL. Although several other early clubs used the name of "North Adelaide", none of them bore ties to the current club ().
North Adelaide started playing at Prospect Oval in 1922 and it has remained their home ground ever since.
