Supporter Groups

Port Adelaide has many supporter groups, with every state or territory containing at least one supporter group. In addition, many country towns within South Australia have their own supporter group, many of which travel to both home and away games.

  • Within metropolitan the official supporter group is known as the Port Adelaide Cheer Squad Supporters Club (PACSSC). The group members must pay an annual fee to join the group with majority funds being donated to the PAFC, usually going towards sponsorship of a player. In addition to this the PACSSC also create banners for home matches and some away games and can be seen and heard from behind the Northern End goals of AAMI Stadium. The name Port Adelaide Cheer Squad Supporters Club derives from a merger of the Port Adelaide Cheer Squad and the Port Adelaide Supporters Group in 2008 in an effort to create a larger official group.
  • The Outer Army which, unlike the PACSSC, is not officially aligned with the PAFC. Despite this the Outer Army still provide funds to the club through sponsorship. The name Outer Army comes from the group’s original position at AAMI Stadium, choosing to sit on the eastern side which is also commonly known as the "Outer". The core group of the Outer Army's members most often take up position in Bay 132, though numerous much smaller groups of Outer Army members of affiliated supporters sit in various other areas around the stadium.
  • The Alberton Crowd have been an active supporters group since the start of the 2011 season. Founded by, run by and geared towards younger supporters and a younger audience, the group takes a more proactive stance of support for the team on game days, particularly with football-style chants and various tifo works, beginning with the large "1870: Forever Port Adelaide" display.
