The Gold Coast Suns have spent the last couple of years trying to make headway in the Chinese market.
They have played two games against Port Adelaide in China over the last two seasons.
However, this appears to no longer be the plan going forward.
Speaking at the Club Champion last night, chairman Tony Cochrane said that there were no plans to go to Shanghai next year.
“(2018) was our last foray to China.”
“The board have decided that to give the playing group every possible chance in the future that the trip is too onerous and too difficult."
He also had a swipe at Port Adelaide, saying “we have stepped away from repeating the trip again to China and we will leave the Port Adelaide chairman (David Koch) to argue with someone else about the colour of their jumper.”
