Adelaide Football Club - Crows History Locker

2017

Adelaide used the Club’s distinctive navy blue, red and gold hoop design when it was one of the eight inaugural teams in the new AFL Women’s competition in 2017. Compared to the main men’s jumper, the women’s home guernsey had marginally wider hoops, used red as the base panel on the chest, had a thicker blue hoop with Crows logo watermarks, and the order of the hoops was different. There were four bands on the front, with gold on the top then navy blue, red and gold at the bottom. Crows great Andrew McLeod designed the indigenous and away guernsey to celebrate the club’s first women’s team and its partnership with the Northern Territory. The predominantly white “away’’ jumper was worn in Adelaide’s interstate clashes and also in the 2017 AFLW grand final. The AFLW club uniforms were supplied by Australian company Cotton On Group.

2018

The front of both jumpers remained almost the same in 2018 but there was a change of number font and sponsor on the back of the home guernsey. The AFLW logo also featured above the numbers, below the neckline, and the front AFL logo had a gold background to honour the 2017 premiership.

2019

Adelaide made slight changes to its home uniform for the 2019 season, with a bigger red panel on the chest and hoops of similar size, although the blue band remained slightly thicker than the gold and red. A thin white outline returned to the numbers but the large AFLW logo disappeared from the back. Gold trim was added to the blue shorts. There were changes to the colours on the front logo of the Indigenous jumper. The Crows wore the home guernsey in the 2019 AFLW grand final at Adelaide Oval.

2020

The Northern Territory flag was removed from above the number after the end of the Club’s arrangement with AFLNT. The AFLW logo returned to the back and the Crows continued to wear the Indigenous guernsey in away games. As in 2018, the front AFL logo had a background colour of gold to recognise the club as reigning premiers.

2021

A new indigenous/away jumper was launched for the 2021 season. Adelaide also had a guernsey specially designed for the inaugural AFLW Pride Round. It featured the rainbow flag on the front. The Crows wore their home jumper (with a grand final badge) in the AFLW decider at Adelaide Oval.

2022 (Season Six)

Adelaide’s AFLW Crows were the first to wear the Club’s new Indigenous design on their new yellow-based away/clash guernsey in 2022. The same design was to be used by the AFL and SANFL teams. Adelaide also wore a commemorative guernsey for AFLW Pride Round and then the following home game. It again featured the rainbow flag colours on the front and this time also had these colours on the shoulders.
