It is 100% happening and will unite the two brands.

So what do people thing it will look like?

Most likely a monogram, I can't see there being a Magpie anywhere near it.

Did KT say it would only be for 2020? Or will it 2020 and beyond?
I reckon they are testing the waters for it. The way he spoke suggests they are keen to unite the logos for good (he associated it with OneClub).

Considering we’re having an anniversary and there’ll probably be a 150 years logo, expect an appropriation of the 150 logo.
Collingwood did it (100 years and 125 years), Carlton did it (150) and Melbourne did it (150)
I don't know, the way he spoke suggested a design that will bring Power and Magpies together in some way, not a heritage one.

Things that should be on it, or at least considered.

1. Port Adelaide
2. PAFC
3. 1870
4. Black and white colours
5. Maybe Prison Bars incorporated like in current AFL logo

Things that could be problematic in a combined logo
1. Teal
2. Magpies
3. Hand with Thunderbolt


Unless it's one of those logos where there is two flags one with a V design and one with the PB design or something.

Magpies shouldn't be a part of it. A monogram makes sense but not the combination of Power and Magpies. We have to question how long our relationship with the sanfl is going to last.

i expect something worse than the best 5 we've seen on this forum over the last decade. my favorite has been the PA monogram inside a Magpies-esque circular badge. surely they won't go for something too elaborate considering all the obvious great parts of multiple badges + monogram we can draw from but who knows.

it'll be a damn shame to lose the black and white stripes i love having them

Less Power, Less Magpies, More Port Adelaide.

I've been thinking along similar lines and got to the point of no reference to either Magpies or the Power (yuk) and simply the Port Adelaide logo in black and white.

Reason being, 'we' are Port Adelaide and as has often been mentioned, the Maggies and Power are teams that represent the PAFC.

Just my thoughts.

If they do a decent job of it (would love to know which agency has the task) I can see something similar to the BiB jumper happening. Bring it in for the anniversary year - public loves it - club adopts it full time.

As people have said, we don't want a Frankenstatein of branding. Needs to be less Magpie, less Power, more black and white, more Port Adelaide.

I like our current logo which seems to me already incorporates everything we’re aiming to do with the new logo. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, especially this current administration who everything they touch turns to ****.

Due to the lack of both trust and confidence in club management, I would bet my left but that the agency is from interstate or overseas who are googleling Port Adelaide Football Club as we speak because they have never heard of it. The clubs PR team will do the rest of the sell spin to supporters. That they believe they are very good at.

There is nothing wrong with what we currently have. Save the money (the cost would be massive) and put it where it is needed : in the football department, sports medicine whatever. A new logo is NOT doing anything to wins games, make finals let alone win a premiership. Talk about moving the deck chairs while the Titanic sinks.

I understand the admin sucks, but the logo of 2 logos put together is only a short term thing. We need a singular logo that represents the whole club.

Me too, but when they started using the Magpies logo as well they cancelled its effectiveness.

Change POWER to PORT and it's done for me.
