The Round 9 2018 Toyota AFL Premiership Season match between the Gold Coast Suns and Port Adelaide Football Club will be held right here in Shanghai on Saturday May 19. That's right, a proper game of Aussie Rules, for proper Premiership points. This is such a big deal the Jiangwan Stadium is even being renamed the Adelaide Arena at Jiangwan Stadium for the occasion.

Sorry AFL fans but tickets have officially sold out. But that doesn't mean you can't partake in the festivities. This week, The Camel will be hosting two events in honor of the big game. On Thursday May 17 and Saturday May 19, Fox footy stars and Port Adelaide officials and players will take to The Camel stage and you can join 'em! 

Tickets are still available for both events. Though space is limited, so we highly recommend swooping them up while you still can. To purchase tickets, click here. 


May 17: Port Adelaide FC Take Over The Camel

Dwayne Russell, Ben Dixon, Tim Ginever and Russell Ebert will be gathering at The Camel on Thursday night to get you pumped up for the big match. There will be two hours of free flow drinks and canapés. Plus, you get to hang out with the stars.

Thurs May 17, 7-9.30pm; RMB298. The Camel, see event listing. Buy tickets here. 

May 19: AFL Before the Bounce at The Camel

Port Power meet the Gold Coast Suns at Jiangwan Stadium on Saturday at 1.15pm.

Tickets get you a buffet breakfast with free flow coffee or beer, depending on how big you want to go. There will also be a free shuttle to and from the stadium.
