An AFL fan has caused outrage after he was pictured wearing a swastika armband in the latest act of racism to rock the league.

Two different pictures show the man displaying the Nazi symbol on his left shoulder while wearing two different Power jumpers.

The Adelaide Advertiser understands the AFL contacted Port Adelaide yesterday after seeing the photos and the club is trying to establish whether the man is a Power member. The global political landscape has been dominated by reactionary dipshits who have emboldened the world's racists to come crawling out their holes to proudly exhibit their shitty views. Apparently, this man is not unknown in the Clayton area, with many people commenting on a post on the Facebook group South East Anti-Racists that they have seen him before walking around in the armband.

It comes a week after Port Adelaide was embroiled in another incident, when a fan racially abused Aboriginal player Eddie Betts during a match against Adelaide Crows.

Ms Spratt has since been charged by police and will face Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.

It follows another racist incident from the same Port Adelaide and Adelaide fixture in 2016, where a different woman threw a banana at Betts.

Over 5,000 Port Adelaide supporters are expected to make the journey to Shanghai, which Mr Thomas says is a significant endorsement from the club's fan base.

"To have over 5,000 of our passionate fans make the journey over - many with our new global airline partner Cathay Pacific - is a massive stamp of approval from our supporter base", he said.

'We simply will not tolerate this behaviour'.
