Graduates Red is one of three current Adelaide University teams who were founding members of the Collegiate Soccer League in 1981*.
At the very beginning, Grads Red had league and cup victories in what was a consistently strong competition where only the best and most consistent teams had more than transient success.
Fast forward more than 30 years and Grads Red continue to flourish in the CSL.
In 2015 they finished second in Division 1A and qualified for the 2016/17 FFA Cup preliminary rounds in which they progressed to the Round of 16 beating State League opponents en route.
*The other two are AUSC Black and AUSC White.
