Port Adelaide will play Gold Coast in China next season, Eddie McGuire has confirmed.

The match will see two teams playing for premiership points in China for the first time ever.

“They’re going to play next year a game up in China,” Eddie told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast

“That’s wonderful news – first game for points (in China). That’ll be announced at 1.30 today.”

It’s not the first time that a home-and-away match has been played overseas.

New Zealand hosted three matches in three seasons between 2013 and 2015 at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium.
