The Port Adelaide Football Club, nicknamed The Power, is based in Port Adelaide, South Australia, which plays in the Australian Football League (AFL) and the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) where they are known as the Magpies. Port Adelaide is the oldest club in South Australia playing in the AFL and one of the oldest football clubs in the world. Since the club’s first game in 1870 it has won 36 SANFL premierships, including six in a row. The club also won the Champions of Australia competition on four occasions.
From its foundation in 1870 to 1996, the club representing Port Adelaide competed in the SANFL as the “Port Adelaide Football Club”. The club has had various nicknames over the years, including: the Cockledivers, the Seaside Men, the Seasiders and the Magentas, before finally settling on the Magpies in 1902. In 1997, the club joined the Australian Football League. On entry, Port Adelaide adopted a new nickname, “The Power”, and added two more colours (silver and teal). Since joining the AFL, Port Adelaide have added the 2004 AFL Grand Final to their premiership wins, thereby bringing the total premierships to 37 (one AFL and 36 SANFL), as well as the four Champion of Australia wins. The club’s AFL licence is held by the SANFL.
