This week, Port Adelaide Magpies welcomed their new sponsor, French shipbuilder DCNS which is working alongside the club, City of PAE and State Government to regenerate the Port Adelaide region with new jobs and new pride.
City of PAE Mayor Gary Johanson said, "It's fantastic to see the Port undergoing a huge redevelopment at the moment with so many new businesses opening, renovations and construction projects. It's great have DCNS getting involved locally alongside the football club which is already so deeply embedded in our community."
Port Adelaide CEO Keith Thomas told the Advertiser yesterday, "Both the club and DCNS want to regenerate Port Adelaide. DCNS will do that with jobs. We as a club are deeply rooted in the Port Adelaide community and will do that by encouraging youth to follow education paths in science, maths, engineering and technology to take up the long-term jobs delivered by DCNS."
The City of PAE has had a long running partnership with the Port Adelaide Football Club to deliver a number of programs in the community.
