Founded in 1878, the Norwood Football Club is one of the two traditional powerhouse clubs of the SANFL, the other being Port Adelaide, who together have won half of all SANFL premierships. As a result, their rivalry was the biggest in South Australian sport for over 100 years before the arrival of the Showdown. The two clubs still consistently attract the largest crowds during the SANFL minor round.

The current home ground for the Norwood Football Club is Norwood Oval. It has been the clubs home since 1901 and under current naming rights it is referred to as ‘Coopers Stadium’.

Norwood is a suburb of Adelaide, located 4 km east of Adelaide’s CBD. The suburb is in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters. Norwood is named after Norwood, London. It was first laid out in 1847. Norwood attracted many European migrants post-World War II. It still has a very high concentration of people of Italian background. This is reflected in the restaurants and fashion boutiques of The Parade, Norwood’s famous shopping precinct.
