The 1902 South Australian Football Association season was the 26th season of the top-level Australian rules football competition in South Australia.

The 1902 premiership was won by the North Adelaide Football Club for the second time. Minor Premiers Port Adelaide were disqualified from the Finals and relegated to third overall after refusing to play South Adelaide due to a dispute over the umpire chosen.[1] Meanwhile, Sturt, in its second season, received its second consecutive wooden spoon.
