Alberton Oval, Port Adelaide

Alberton Oval is located in Alberton, a north-western suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. The ground is a public park and exclusively leased to the Port Adelaide Football Club for Australian rules football.
With the nearby Queenstown Oval built upon in 1876, the Alberton and Queenstown Council opted to construct a cricketing ground on the land adjacent Brougham Place in 1876. The land was donated by the former Mayor of Port Adelaide, John Formby. The Queen and Albert Oval was officially opened on 8 November 1877 for a game between the touring Tasmanian cricket team and a selected eleven of the Queen and Albert Cricket Association.
While several teams played at the Alberton Oval in the ground's early days, it is most famous for being the training and administration base for the Port Adelaide Football Club since it played its first game on 15 May 1880 and defeated the original, now-defunct Kensington Football Club 1-nil.
Port Adelaide still plays its SANFL games at the ground, although AFL games are played at Adelaide Oval and, between 1997 and 2013, at AAMI Stadium.
All of the club's teams, including its AFL team and its SANFL League and Academy teams, conduct their principal trainings at the ground.
