Should be interesting to see the crowd and tv ratings next season for the Port Adelaide vs Gold Coast game in China.

AN AFL oval launched in China with much fanfare and a $1.5 million investment has been sitting unused with a power pole in the field of play.

Would really like to see the AFL test the Indian market as well. Plenty of oval shaped grounds/stadiums available there and no real dominant winter sport I can think of.
AFL boss Gillon McLachlan said he was excited to see the first game in China next year.

“We believe we have the most exciting and athletic game in the world and the chance to showcase our game in China is too good an opportunity to pass up,’’ McLachlan said.

“This event is part of our broader strategy to reach into new markets both inside Australia and across our region.

“There is no full stop in our (global) vision.”

McLachlan said if the Power delivers in China, the AFL will look ahead to new markets, most obvious being in India and South Africa.

Naw, poor Ange is upset with the PM and the AFL in China. :(/ :(/ :(/
Ange Postecoglou slams Malcolm Turnbull for using AFL to engage with China instead of football
3 days ago
by Anna HarringtonSource: FOX SPORTS

THE AFL may be proudly promoting its first clash for premiership points in China with their 2017 Fixture announcement on Thursday.

But in his new book, Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has slammed Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull for attempting to use AFL — rather than football — as a means of engaging with China, referring to Turnbull’s April 2016 visit, where he led 1,000 business leaders on what was reported as the largest-ever trade mission to the country.

“When it was announced by the AFL that it intended to host a match in China between Port Adelaide and Gold Coast Suns, the prime minister couldn’t help but clamber all over the possibiltieis, exalting the greatness of Australia’s native game,” Postecoglou says in his book Changing the Game.

If a prime minister, on behalf of a trade mission and business leaders, is going to impress the Chinese in the world of sport, surely he should use a sport common to both, like football, where Australia and China actually have relations and that the Chinese actually care about.”

Turnbull actively spruiked Australian Rules Football as the “most exciting” football code at the game’s launch in April

“AFL is the most exciting football code,” Turnbull said.

“An enormous field, extraordinary athleticism, it is the leaping, jumping, flying game, where the big men fly — as they say.

“Where possession is everything, possession is everything, it is a game that moves faster than any other. So exciting.”

The dust bowl oval was 2013-14

That's a bit after the laughable lions game
Didn't they have to drag someone out of the mainly expat crowd to play as there weren't enough players .

So this laughable game ...2010
The failed 1.5 mill .....dust bowl oval with a telephone post in the middle ..a few years after

Lol
Do you ever get tired if being shown you're wrong ....delusional & a perfect fumblefan
Swallow that propaganda down .

Well our game in China got over 7,000 watching at the ground and has led to millions more Chinese watching our game on tv.

You lot got a little over 5,000 for the world dominating Kangawhos vs Scotland this week. Laughable indeed. :(/
