In 2004 a local supporters group was formed, “LFC Downunder” and then in 2008 LFC Adelaide was officially launched and became part of the Official Liverpool Supporters Club (OLSC) network, with founder Matthew Selby being chair and a committee formed at a meeting at a meeting in PJ O Brien’s in Adelaide.
The first official venue for gatherings and match viewings was the Brecknok Hotel in King William St, until it’s closure.
After that a short stint at the Maid and Magpie followed, until we found a new permanent home in the Arkaba in 2014.
LFC Adelaide grew year on year in which time our branch played a significant part in bringing many former LFC players to Australia.
Our membership peaked at almost 1000 financial members in July 2015, when Liverpool FC, as part of their pre-season tour played against Adelaide United at the iconic Adelaide Oval – and a three day party was had by all!
After the tour, Matthew stood down and the secretary Steve Trickey took over as Chairman with Tom Denny becoming secretary.
In that time Adelaide welcomed many legends including Bruce Grobbelaar, Robbie Fowler, Ian Rush and John Barnes. We have continued to strengthen our Partnerships with Claymore Wines and The Arkaba and we continue to host Adelaide’s biggest football supporter events.

In 2020 a new extended committee was formed and Matthew again become Chairman, after Steve decided to hand over the reins.
Due to Liverpool’s branding requirements LFC Adelaide has now become OLSC Adelaide…..
