Adelaide United Football Club and selected fans, including members of the active supporter group the Red Army, met on Tuesday night in an open discussion with Chief Executive Officer, Grant Mayer.

The open forum was a fantastic opportunity to meet with fans, discuss expectations, and address the direction of the Club.

A number of key points were tabled with player, community, and fan engagement top of the list. Further discussion points included membership, active support, player movements, stadium management, and the NYL and NPL, as well as clarifying fan questions over board structure and responsibility relating to football operations.

“This was a valuable experience for all involved and I thank the fans that were invited for coming along and talking openly with us,” said Mayer.

“The absolute number one takeaway we have from this is fan engagement - wanting the players and the Club to recognise our fans are here to support the team no matter what.

“That starts with the squad and flows right through the entire organisation.

“As a Club, we acknowledge our fans’ concerns and look forward to working together to build a stronger relationship moving forward.”

Further forums extended to the wider supporter base are to be scheduled throughout the year as both Adelaide United and the Red Army agreed to move forward in the best interests of the Club and its supporters.

“We are satisfied with the information provided and appreciate the club affording us the opportunity to be heard,” said Red Army President, Zoran Milojevic.

"We look forward to working closely with the Club in the future to build support both on and off the field."
