SA British FA

The first noted Official Competition as AUSC was in 1935 with the South Australian British Football Association: SABFA (prior to name change to South Australian Soccer Association SASA and then Federation: SASF) until 1983 (split of teams to CSL 1981 and then 1st team and reserves AUSC Blacks to SAASL in 1984).

*Notes
*1980 - Saw a hiatus for many of the AU Coloured teams playing amongst themselves during winter before beginning the Collegiate Soccer League with other Old Collegiate / College / Tafe / University teams not offered spots in the revamped SASF Leagues as they turned to a professional focus
**1984 - The AUSC Blacks teams then joined the SAASL in 1984 (Other AUSC teams had left to join the Collegiate Soccer League in 1981)
