Mark started his career at the AIS before moving to Adelaide United in 2008. He made his first team debut against Queensland Roar on 17 October 2008 helping Adelaide to a 1–0 win. Aurelio Vidmar praised the young goalkeeper after the game saying "I think Birighitti played well he's got a really good future,he had big shoes to fill and I think he did an outstanding job tonight." 
His second successive A-League start came against Perth Glory at Hindmarsh Stadium after Adelaide's number one goalkeeper, 28-year-old Eugene Galekovic, was injured during the Asian Champions League game against FC Bunyodkor. Despite conceding the game's first goal at the near post, Birighitti played his part in the 2–1 win taking Adelaide to the top of the league table.
