Jiangwan Stadium near completion for historic AFL game

Jiangwan Stadium fly through - PTV Go inside the famous stadium in Shanghai where we'll play the Suns in 2017.

THE final piece of the Jiangwan Stadium jigsaw is being put in place today, with the construction of the temporary stands for the historic Round 8 game between Port Adelaide and the Suns underway.

With 26 days until the match takes place, the remaining preparations for the 11,500-capacity Jiangwan Stadium will be finalised in the next few weeks. 

Despite reports to the contrary on Tuesday, Port Adelaide expects no changes to preparations ahead of the May 14 game. 

Port Adelaide CEO Keith Thomas was asked whether regional tensions may impact the match at a press conference on Tuesday.

He said neither the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, nor the AFL, had suggested the game will be postponed.

"Right now, we have had no advice to suggest that the game is at risk or we shouldn't be going, and we'll just keep bowling along until we're told otherwise," Mr Thomas said.

Port Adelaide plays Gold Coast at Jiangwan Stadium, Shanghai on May 14 at 1.20pm local time.
