About the project

Port Adelaide is the oldest League Football Club in South Australia and the most successful senior football club in the nation. We were a foundation club of the original South Australian Football Association and are the only traditional, local club outside of Victoria to be admitted into the AFL.

When it comes to cultural institutions in South Australia, few compete with our club. When it comes to Premierships and success on the football field, no-one compares to the achievements of the Port Adelaide Football Club. That is why it’s important we are able to document, display & celebrate the rich and varied history of Port Adelaide football in a museum.

The Port Adelaide Football Club's 150th year in 2020 will be a historic celebration of the club's enviable history of success and the deep roots in our community heartland as a South Australian cultural institution. 

There is no better time to ensure current and future generations are able to celebrate past and future successes via the establishment of a long-awaited Port Adelaide Football Club Museum, to be constructed at our heartland, Alberton Oval, within the ground level of the existing "Port Club" Social Club. The museum will integrate within member hospitality, merchandise and administration facilities and will respectfully and uniquely display the Club's unparalleled history and also feature interactive exhibits for all supporters to enjoy.

This exciting and ambitious project will cost a total of $4 million with the first two stages being completed for $2 million. Stages 1 & 2 will be funded by this campaign where we offer supporters the opportunity to assist the Club to create a wonderful legacy in the form of a Club Museum. We are proud of the past and confident of the future and your contribution will ensure both are preserved for generations to come.

The ambitious project will see the museum launched on the back of a concerted fundraising campaign, with anticipated completion in our historic 150th year in 2020.

Port Adelaide Football Club has partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation so that donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Please join us in celebrating the past and future successes of Port Adelaide Football Club by making a tax deductible donation today.
