The North Adelaide District Football Association (NADFA) was an Australian rules football competition based in the northern and north-eastern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia until it merged with the East Torrens Football Association to form the Norwood-North Football Association at the end of the 1968 season.[1] It was formed in 1921 under the patronage of the North Adelaide Football Club with complete control over its own affairs.[2]

The association came into controversy in 1927 when a player, J. Warming, was not permitted to play for league club West Adelaide due to a 12-month suspension received for striking an umpire whilst playing within the North Adelaide District Association.[3]
