Adama City Football Club (Amharic: አዳማ ከትማ እግር ኳስ ክለብ) is an Ethiopian football club based in Adama, Ethiopia. They are a member of the Ethiopian Football Federation and play in the Ethiopian Premier League, the top division in Ethiopian football.[1]


Adama City briefly held the top spot late in the 2017–18 Ethiopian Premier League season before eventually finishing 5th.[2]

On August 4, 2018 the club hired Sisay Abraham as manager and Dawit Tadesse as assistant coach.[3]


Their home in Adama is Abebe Bikila stadium (not to be confused with the Abebe Bikila Stadium located in Addis Ababa), the second such stadium in the country to be named after the 1960,1964 Olympic marathon champion Abebe Bikila.


Adama City (Ketema) enjoys a great support for its fans both at home in Adama and during away fixtures. The supporters have been involved in some altercation with some rival team supporters in the past.[4]


Salaries at the club have steadily risen with player like Jecko Peaze Peryze earning 165,000 Br per month.[5]
