Port Adelaide will wear its heritage guernsey for its elimination final against Richmond on Sunday.
Port Adelaide will be wearing its traditional black-and-white ‘prison bar’ guernsey in Sunday’s elimination final against Richmond after apparel supplier ISC confirmed it would meet deadline for production.
The Power applied to wear its heritage guernsey after the AFL stated the club would have to wear its white clash strip in its home final as Richmond did not have a suitable alternative strip for the do-or-die clash between the two clubs at Adelaide Oval.
Port Adelaide chief executive Keith Thomas said the club were happy that it is able to wear its traditional strip after the AFL denied the Power the opportunity to wear its normal home strip.
“On behalf of the club I want to reiterate our thanks to the AFL for their willingness to seek a satisfactory resolution and to Collingwood for their pragmatic approach to our prison bar guernsey in the best interests of Sunday’s final,” Thomas is quoted in a club statement.
“And I extend a massive thanks to our apparel supplier ISC for their ability to produce these guernseys at such short notice.
“Their team is working around the clock to get these guernseys produced in time and we are very grateful for their effort.”
