The Port Adelaide Football Club has been regarded one of the most successful football clubs in Australia because they have gone on to win an Australian record of 36 SANFL premierships including six in a row - another national record - and achieve the honour of being Champions of Australia on four occasions, the most of any club in the nation.

HistoryEdit

The Port Adelaide Football Club was first founded on 20 April 1870 and played its first match on 24 May 1870 at Buck's Flat in Glanville. Based in the north-western suburbs of Adelaide, its traditional supporter base is among the working-class residents of Port Adelaide and its surrounding areas; a strong rivalry naturally ensued with clubs of the wealthier suburbs, such as Norwood and Glenelg.
