The Adelaide Adrenaline are a semi-professional ice hockey team based in Thebarton, South Australia that play in the Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL).

History[edit]

The club was formed at the start of July 2008 to replace the Adelaide Avalanche after they folded in June. In a deal with the AIHL the A's picked up the Avalanche's team list and fulfilled the existing game schedule for the remainder of the 2008 season.[1] After the 2008 season the A's were renamed the Adelaide Adrenaline for the upcoming 2009 season.
