The 25-year old leaves the Gold Coast after being part of the Suns inaugural AFL squad and playing the fourth most senior games since the club’s inception.

Port Adelaide list manager Jason Cripps says McKenzie will add important depth and experience to the Power’s 2018 list.

CEO Update: Nov 2

CEOheader_2016_updated-temp.jpg

Dear Members and Supporters, 

We seem to have been very busy and quite high profile in the month that has elapsed since the AFL Grand Final.

Virtually everything we have been involved in will be of real significance to the long-term future of the Club, so I thought it may be worth spending a minute or two reflecting on some of those big moments. 

Firstly, we were absolutely thrilled to be able to pen a deal to extend the tenure of Ken and his family here with us at Port Adelaide. The senior coaching position of an AFL Club is not an easy gig, but as we think back to 2012 when Ken and Donna first arrived in
Adelaide, there can simply be no doubting the profound changes that have taken place at our Club. From 14th position, we have enjoyed three years of finals participation and significant growth in the past five years. Several of those finals have been absolute epics, including this...

TRENT MCKENZIE is excited to reunite with former coach Ken Hinkley after signing a one-year contract with the Power yesterday.

The delisted free agent was picked up as a 17-year-old access selection in the inaugural Gold Coast team, where Hinkley was an assistant coach.  

McKenzie said the relationship he formed with Hinkley in his time at the Suns and the opportunity to reignite his career were important factors in his decision to relocate to Alberton.

“I spoke to him pretty early and he was keen to get me across,” McKenzie told Fiveaa’s Rowey and Bicks on Thursday afternoon.  

“It will be great to get to [Port Adelaide] and...

PORT ADELAIDE will be putting in the kilometres next year with plenty of travel booked for the 2018 season. 

An exciting 2018 fixture with trips to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Ballarat, Tasmania and China will give Port members from around Australia - and China - a great opportunity to watch their team play live.

Sydney at the SCG in Round 2 marks the first away trip of the season, with the Power looking to repeat last year’s courageous win in the opening round of 2017. Sam Powell-Pepper was inspirational in his first AFL game, leading the side to a 28-point victory.

Vote for Alberton upgrade

PORT ADELAIDE has applied for a grant with the Fund My Neighbourhood initiative - but we need YOUR help to secure it!

The grant would see significant upgrades to the Alberton Oval precinct, providing much better facilities for local community groups and better security while also improving the experience at Alberton for families and children.

If successful, the $150,000 would be put towards;

- Installation of new canteen facilities to assist local community and sporting groups with their fundraising
- A children’s playground to provide a family friendly experience when visiting the club and on game days
- Installation of security cameras and lighting to ensure Alberton Oval is a safe and secure venue for members, supporters and families

But the club is up against a number of other great community organisations in the Port Adelaide Enfield City Council area for the grant – and only your...

Power welcomes 2018 fixture

2018 Fixture - PTV Jump on the big bird and fly through our 2018 fixture!

Exactly one week after the AFL confirmed Port Adelaide will clash with the Gold Coast Suns in Shanghai next year, the full AFL fixture for 2018 was today announced with Adelaide Oval set to host a blockbuster series of Port Adelaide home games in June.

Three consecutive Port Adelaide home games kick off on 8 June when the Power hosts reigning premiers Richmond on a Friday night in Round 12.

This is immediately followed by a Thursday night clash against the Western Bulldogs in Round 13 and then a Friday night meeting with Melbourne the following week, when new Port Adelaide recruit Jack Watts could potentially face up against his former club for the first time. 

Significantly, all three of these home games will be broadcast standalone and free-to-air nationally on the Seven Network. 

Besides the blockbuster...

2018 season on TV

shanghai 2048.jpg

Foxtel will cover the 2018 Shanghai match

This story originally appeared on afl.com.au. The views represented are not that of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

FANS will be able to watch AFL at least once on every day of the week in 2018, after the AFL released its schedule for next season.

Channel Seven, Fox Footy and Telstra's AFL Live App will have every game covered, as they enter the second year of the six-year $2.508b media rights agreement. 

There is one less Thursday night game than last year – seven in total – because Easter occurs in round two as opposed to round four.

There are two weeks of consecutive Thursday night games to open the season, followed by five games in the lucrative timeslot from round 13 through to round 17.

There'll be a historic Tuesday night game featuring Melbourne and Richmond on Anzac Day Eve, the fourth season in a row the teams have met before the...

AFL: Your 2016 draftees, one year on

A detailed assessment of how last year's draft crop and rookies performed in 2017. This story originally appeared on afl.com.au and does not represent the views of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

Pick 15: Jordan Gallucci
Made his AFL debut in the Crows' round nine win against the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba, gathering 11 possessions and kicking a goal. It was his only senior appearance of the season as the midfielder spent the rest of the year in the SANFL where he played 13 games. The Victorian is yet to sign a new contract beyond the end of 2018.

Pick 44: Myles Poholke
Played 16 games in the SANFL alternating between the midfield and half-forward. Has the physical attributes for senior football already, but needs to improve his tank, ball use and defensive responsibilities to take the next step. Rewarded with a two-year extension until the end of 2020.

Pick 51: Elliott Himmelberg

Port farewells trio

farewell_hero.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE has finalised its list ahead of the AFL’s deadline for first list lodgements on Tuesday, 31 October.

Matthew White, Jesse Palmer and Brett Eddy have been told they won’t be offered new contracts for the 2018 season.

General Manager of Football Chris Davies thanked the players for their contributions at Alberton.

“Matthew came to Port Adelaide in 2014 and has been a really important member of the squad with his speed and ability to hit the scoreboard,” Davies said.

“Regrettably, injury robbed Matthew of all but a few minutes of football in 2016, but he fought back to make an impact in the AFL in 2017 and was also a great leader with our young SANFL team.

“Jesse finished 2016 strongly, earning his AFL debut in Round 21 and holding his place for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to break into the Power side this season despite solid form with the...
