The Rundle Mall Authority, the Port Adelaide Football Club and its supporter groups will join forces in 2014 to bring the city to life with the highly anticipated March from the Mall.

Following from Port Adelaide’s successful ‘March to the ‘G’ concept, where supporters gathered in Federation Square to walk to the MCG when the Power played there in 2013, the club has entered into an agreement with the Rundle Mall Management Authority to use the popular shopping precinct as the starting point for its home game march.

Port Adelaide needs fewer than 8,000 members to reach 50,000. Join the club today with an 11-game reserved seat or Essential Power membership to guarantee your place at the historic first Showdown at the Adelaide Oval at or call 1300 GO PAFC (1300 467 232)

The Power’s army of supporters - led by the Port Adelaide Cheer Squad - will congregate in the Mall prior to the match and march to the Adelaide Oval 90 minutes before the first bounce.

It’s something that will bring the city to life with a sea of black, white and teal.

Port Adelaide’s membership retention coordinator Ben Demertzis organises a number of supporter events throughout the year including the popular March to the ‘G.

He told the March from the Mall will be a great opportunity for supporters to walk as one to the new home of South Australian football and generate the exciting atmosphere the club is renowned for.

“The atmosphere we created with the March to the ‘G was phenomenal and we know it was really appreciated by our players when we finally got into the stadium,” Demertzis said.

“We drowned out Collingwood in that first final which is almost unheard of in AFL footy!

“Our marches give an opportunity for our people to meet up and set the tone for the day.

“We know the March from the Mall will create a unique Port Adelaide atmosphere that will make our city come alive and if we can carry that down to the Oval it will be a really important morale boost for the club.

“Kenny and the boys love the noise our supporters make and we’ve started to build a reputation for being one of the most passionate crowds in the league, so we want to make it even better this year.”

While the club is yet to finalise details for the March from the Mall, the club will shortly update all game day information on the membership website including details of supporter and spectator opportunities at the Adelaide Oval in 2014.
