The Metro Stars is a football (soccer) club from Adelaide, South Australia which plays in the South Australian Super League. It is based at the T.K Shutter reserve in the north-eastern suburb of Klemzig. It has generally been a strong club and has dominated in the top division of South Australian Football.



The club was initially known as the "Metro Knights" before a name change to the MetroStars in 1998. It started playing in division 2 of the Saturday Amateur league in 1995, won promotion into Division 1, and quickly became the dominant side in the league. The club entered the SASF State League in 1999 and won promotion to the Premier League in its first season. Metro Stars has subsequently cemented its position in the top South Australian football league and has developed into one of the league's leading clubs. During the formation of the FFSA and the Super League, Metro supported the federation, and in early 2006 was the first club to become a member.

They have recently become a more dominant force in the Super League over the last few years winning in both the senior and reserves squads. They have also produced young talents such as Jason Spagnuolo, Fabian Barbiero and Francesco Monterosso, all who have been recruited by Adelaide United F.C.
