TRAVIS BOAK will play on for an 18th season after agreeing to terms on a one-year contract extension with Port Adelaide.

The club’s AFL games record holder, Boak played all but three games this season to take his career tally to 348.

The 35-year-old is a two-time John Cahill Medallist as club champion and three-time All-Australian among various other accolades, and captained the club between 2013 and 2018.


He says he is excited to have the opportunity to go on for another season.

“I’ve still got a lot of drive and my body still feels great so I’m really excited for another year and looking forward to getting out there again,” Boak said.

“Port Adelaide has been my home for a long period of time and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I want to finish my career here. I’ve been through a lot at this club and to finish here, with a premiership hopefully, would be the dream.

“I think our group has taken a big step forward from last year, despite not winning a final. The growth as a group and in individual players has been huge, and another year together will naturally make our group better. I’m excited to be part of that.

“The fans of the Port Adelaide Football Club have been an amazing support for me, even over the last few weeks since the season has finished, and I can’t thank them enough.

“I am passionate about the Port Adelaide Football Club and still playing footy, and for the club to give me the time to make this decision and support me through that along with the fans has been incredible, and I’m now excited to go out there again and represent this great footy club.”


List Manager Jason Cripps said Boak’s professionalism and leadership meant he remained an asset for the club.

“Travis is a professional and continues to be a role model for all players on our list,” Cripps said.

“He is a leader both on and off the field and we look forward to seeing him continue his career at Port Adelaide.”
