PORT ADELAIDE has secured Todd Marshall until the end of 2029 after the key forward agreed to terms on a long-term contract extension. 

Already contracted until the end of 2024, the new five-year extension will see Marshall tied to Port Adelaide well beyond his initial eligibility for free agency. 

Marshall said he couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else. 

“This club gave me my first crack at AFL and has supported me through some tough times both on and off the field,” Marshall said. 

“I want to repay the club for the faith and support they’ve shown me from the day I was drafted. 


“We’re building something special and very few players want to leave our club because of the culture we’ve created. 

“I never considered leaving and I’m thrilled to have locked away my long-term future here at Port Adelaide.” 

Since debuting in Round 22 2017, Marshall’s development as a key forward has fast-tracked. 

Known as a sharpshooter, Marshall kicked 36.16 from 21 games in 2023, finishing just behind Jeremy Finlayson as the club’s leading goal-kicker.

The tall and agile Marshall, having played alongside key forward Charlie Dixon for the duration of his career, has booted 138 goals from his 97 games. 

Port Adelaide List Manager Jason Cripps said it was a focus to secure Marshall’s signature. 

“We all know how important key forwards are, so to lock away Todd until the end of 2029 is very pleasing,” Cripps said. 

“He has elite forward craft and his skills are excellent for a player of his size.  

“Todd continues to grow as a leader and we think his best footy is still in front of him. 

“He is a very important member of our young squad moving forward so to have him commit long-term is a huge positive for the club.” 

Twenty-five year old Marshall arrived at Alberton with pick 16 at the 2016 AFL National Draft.
