Following the AFL’s commitment to hold a Toyota AFL Premiership Season match in Shanghai for another three years, Tourism Australia has announced it will continue its support as the AFL’s official tourism partner.
In 2015, the Australian Government launched its International Sports Diplomacy strategy to support the development of closer relationships with countries around the world, and putting on AFL matches in China is part of that strategy in action.
After seeing two matches between Port Adelaide and the Gold Coast, Shanghai’s sport lovers and travelling fans in 2019 will witness the ‘Shanghai Showdown’ between Port and the St Kilda Football Club.
