Founded in 1978
The club was originally founded in 1978 under the name of Adelaide Asteras and in 1982 changed its name to Thebarton Asteras. In 1990 it changed its name to Olympians and again in 2000 to Olympic Football Club. In 2001 it adopted its current name of Adelaide Olympic.
The club played its first games in 1979 in the 6th division of the Amateur league. Its intial home games were played at Woodville West. The club won the 6th division amassing 104 goals including one 15-0 victory over West End United.
In 1981 the club joined the SASF Metro League and won the league in its first season. They were promoted to the 2nd division, finished last and relegated back to the Metro League in 1982. In 1983 they finished second and were promoted back up to the 2nd division
The club struggled in the 2nd division for the next eight years
In 1992 Adelaide Olympic dominated the 2nd division finishing seven points clear at the top of the table and were promoted to the 1st division. The topsy turvy path continued with Olympic dropping back to the 2nd division in 1994, returning to the Premier League in 1996, dropping to the 2nd division in 2000 and finally returning to the Premier League in 2001.
In recent seasons the club has steadily improved its on-field performances and added consistency to become a regular challenger for the Premier League title.
