We are pleased to announce that Martin Southern has been appointed General Manager at Adelaide City Football Club!

Martin joins us with a wealth of knowledge and experience in range of different sports:

– Manager Adelaide University Cricket Club
– GM of Sports Development at Netball SA
– From 2003 to 2015 worked in UAE and Dubai ranging from working with Arabian Golf Union to General Manager of East Sports Management.

Club Chairman, Greg Griffin, had this to say:

“The appointment of an experienced and well credentialed General Manager of the Club has been a priority of the Board. The Club has undertaken a thorough recruitment process and has now identified the successful candidate for this most important role.

I am delighted to announce that Martin Southern has accepted the position as the General Manager of Operations. Martin comes to us with extensive international and local experience in management of flourishing sporting organisations. His enthusiasm to be involved in all levels of the playing ranks and the administration of the 3 Venues we operate from made him the outstanding candidate.

I trust you all welcome Martin to the Adelaide City family when he starts with us this week. Before he even started I found Martin at the very successful Junior Trials run over 3 nights last week. Martin was impressed with not only the numbers trialing but the obvious input of many parents and volunteers that made these trial such a success.”

On his appointment, Martin had this to say:

“I’m excited to be appointed as General Manager at Adelaide City. The club has massive potential and I see my role as helping realise that potential especially with connecting the seniors, juniors, men, and women.”

Congratulations and welcome, Martin!
