Port Adelaide is set to go through one of its most significant changes in recent time with a redevelopment of Alberton Oval.

Port Adelaide is set to go through one of its most significant changes since its move to become an AFL club from the SANFL in 1997 with a redevelopment of Alberton Oval.

For the club to push forward with its plan, it needs its more than 60,000 members to express their support from any location to the City of Port Adelaide Enfield Council.

Alberton Oval has been the home of the Port Adelaide Football Club for more than 140 years and it needs the redevelopment to help enhance both its AFL program and its brand new AFL Women’s program, set to be competing in 2022 for the first time.

The vision of the club is to create a community and recreation hub, while providing modern, elite training and rehabilitation spaces that support the needs of current and future players.

The proposed upgrade will not only benefit the club itself, but the community, with local basketball, junior soccer and other community facilities planned in the change.

The club also intends to take care of the environment through the redevelopment with a 100 per cent increase in trees and a 92 per cent increase in off-street parking, which will make attending AFLW and SANFL matches that much easier.
