The Adelaide Football Club could be set for a major shake-up as the club falls to one of its lowest points in its 30 year history.

Three board members could be exiting West Lakes, according to The Advertiser.

Chairman Rob Chapman previously signalled that he would step aside from the role he has served since 2008, however, two others could also step aside.

Chapman’s deputy Jim Hazel is also rumoured to be considering his future at the club, while a third, unnamed board member could also leave the club.

However, it appears that football director Mark Ricciuto is digging his heels in, despite public pressure for him to step aside.

The former Brownlow medallist and premiership player has come under fire for his recent public attacks on former Adelaide players.

Among the potential replacements on the board are former SA politician Christopher Pyne as well as Thomas Foods’ CEO Darren Thomas.


The news comes as the Crows slump to 0-5 in the 2020 season, following Sunday’s loss to fellow cellar dwellers Fremantle.
