NAB Cup[edit]

The 2010 NAB Cup was disappoining for the Crows, being eliminated in the first round by rivals Port Adelaide. Adelaide never threatened and went down by 56 points, in line for a hot country warm-up via the NAB Challenge route. The Crows travelled to Traeger Park in Alice Springs and were welcomed by torrential downpours. Collingwood defeated the Crows by 20 points, 11.10 (76) – 8.6 (54).

Adelaide came back to South Australia for a clash with last seasons wooden spooners Melbourne. The game was played at Elizabeth Oval, home of local club Central District, and Adelaide prevailed by two points for their first win of the new season.

The last match of Adelaide's pre-season was played against Carlton at Visy Park. It was another close affair, with the Crows prevailing by a point.
