The AFL Is Set To Head To China!

Port Adelaide and the AFL have today revealed their plans to play for Premiership points in China.

The amazing move to play a Port home game in China was revealed in Shanghai, where AFL boss Gillon McLachlan and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball attended the historic announcement with Port''s chairman David Koch.

It is not yet known who will play Port in China or where it will be played but it is know it will be during a bye weekend in 2017.

China will become the second foreign country to host an AFL game for points after New Zealand became the first, which now has St Kilda as it's home team.

The announcement follows the news that Port Adelaide had struck a deal with Central China Television to have a weekly highlights programme broadcast in China.
