MG Motors unveils Port Adelaide new high-performance facility

The federal and SA government funded project is set to provide world class facilities for the Port Adelaide Football Club

MG Motors Australia and the Port Adelaide Football Club have unveiled a new training and recovery and community precinct at Alberton Oval. 

MG Motors Australia and New Zealand CEO Peter Ciao was joined by Senator Mark Butler and Port Adelaide chairman David Koch for the unveiling of the facility. 

The MG High Performance Centre includes an indoor training field, two international-standard basketball courts, gymnasium, lecture theatre, player wellness space and medical amenities. 

“We are incredibly proud that the venue will be named the MG High Performance Centre and is a step towards our future,” Ciao says. 

“This is a major milestone for our business and history in Australia. 

“Most people see us as an automotive manufacturer, but we offer solutions to community needs and support the community that supports us.” 

The project has been supported by a $15 million investment from the federal government along with a $3 million commitment from the South Australian government and additional funding from the AFL, City of Port Adelaide Enfield, MG and GFG Alliance. 

“With the $15 million investment by the federal government, Port Adelaide will have world class, high-performance training, recovery and matchday facilities for its AFL, AFLW and SANFL programs,” Butler says. 

“It won’t just benefit the club – the redeveloped precinct is going to have flow on benefits for local sporting clubs with two new basketball courts and a soccer pitch.” 

Koch says the facility will become a space for the community, its members and fans to enjoy for many years to come. 

“This whole redevelopment is the biggest project we’ve ever undertaken, and it will leave a lasting legacy for the future,” Koch says.
