Since 2017 the AFL have organised three games at Jiangwan Stadium in Shanghai’s Yangpu District.
AFL General manager of China David Stevenson said that the league wants to keep playing games in China to build new on and off-field partnerships.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to give the local AFL fans a match in their home town, encourage Australian-based football fans to travel to China and continue to introduce footy to a new set of fans,” he said.
Attendances for the games have been recorded at 10,689 and 10,118 for the first two and a crowd of 9,412 this year with several busloads of fans being taken to the wrong stadium by mistake.
Since the partnership started Port Adelaide have won all of their three games in Shanghai.
