Port Adelaide Football Club (SANFL)

The Port Adelaide Football Club, nicknamed The Magpies, is an Australian rules football club which competes in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL). Originally established in 1870 for the local competition, the Port Adelaide Football club existed as two entities between 1997 and 2010: the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club, which continued the club's presence in the SANFL; and the Port Adelaide Football Club, which competed in the Australian Football League (AFL). These two clubs shared the same history but existed as separate legal entities. In 2010 this changed when the two clubs merged to form the current Port Adelaide Football Club, fielding teams in both the SANFL and the AFL.

Since it was founded in 1870, the Port Adelaide Football Club, in its various forms, has won a record 36 SANFL premierships and finished as runner-up in the SANFL grand final 35 times, finishing runners-up in the AFL Grand Final and winning their first AFL Grand Final in 2004, making it the most successful football club in the AFL.

Famous quotes containing the words club, port and/or football:

    In another year I’ll have enough money saved. Then I’m gonna go back to my hometown in Oregon and I’m gonna build a house for my mother and myself. And join the country club and take up golf. And I’ll meet the proper man with the proper position. And I’ll make a proper wife who can run a proper home and raise proper children. And I’ll be happy, because when you’re proper, you’re safe.
    Daniel Taradash (b. 1913)

    In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Idon’t enjoy getting knocked about on a football field for other people’s amusement. I enjoy it if I’m being paid a lot for it.
    David Storey (b. 1933)
