Port Adelaide’s interest in South China has been growing over the last few years and their support and sponsorship of IC14’s TEAM CHINA was phenominal! This partnership has now been upped to Sponsorship of the entire South China Australian Football League. Including Senior and Auskick teams from Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou and Guangdong province and the predominantly local Chinese GDAFL feeder league. The focus is on local development and growing the game in South China. Their sponsorship is brings a new level of growth opportunities and is very much appreciated! A huge thank you to all involved!

The sponsorship has allowed the creation of a new GDAFL team the Zhujiang Pearl River Power sporting the Port Adelaide guernseys who played their first GDAFL game last saturday.

More partnerships are still being sought to join with Port Adelaide and the SCAFL.

AFL ASIA’s Vice President and new SCAFL President Darren Whitfield said “Local talent is the key to the future growth of our game. Build it and they will come!”
