The AFL has confirmed that Port Adelaide and St Kilda will go head-to-head in Shanghai in Round 11 next year.

Since the AFL expanded into China in 2017, three games have been contested at Jiangwan Stadium in Shanghai's Yangpu District.

Port Adelaide hosted Gold Coast in the first two games and faced off against St Kilda this season.

AFL General Manager of China David Stevenson said the league decided to continue playing games in China to build new on and off-field partnerships.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to give the local AFL fans a match in their home town, encourage Australian-based football fans to travel to China and continue to introduce footy to a new set of fans,” he said.

Port Adelaide has won all three games in Shanghai since the partnership first began.
