AFL's Embarrassing Anthem Moment In China
The AFL broke new ground yesterday by taking a premiership match to China.
A crowd of 25 000 packed Jiangwan Stadium for the clash between Gold Cost Suns and Port Adelaide with millions more tuning in on TV.
It was to be the AFL’s biggest gamble and one that was to give them the ultimate win over their competitors.
Unfortunately the opening to the match was soured when the Port Adelaide team song was played instead of Advance Australia Fair!
