PORT Adelaide will head to the Gold Coast on Sunday for what it plans to be a seven-week stay to reboot its season.

The club, along with Adelaide, West Coast and Fremantle are all set to be based in Queensland for the resumption of games due to their states' respective strict border controls in dealing with COVID-19.

Power football boss Chris Davies said the club will relocate this weekend for a training block before games resume on June 11.

However, it is unlikely families and partners will join the players until after the initial two weeks.

"We go Sunday and from a players' perspective, partners probably won't come for the first couple of weeks," he told SEN radio station.

"We've only got four players who have got children, so it will just then depend then on whether other partners decide they want to come up. Sunday is D-Day for us."

While details of the first four-to-six weeks of the fixture will be released in coming days, the Power already beat the Suns in round one at Metricon Stadium before the season was paused, while there is a chance the 'Showdown' fixture between the South Australian clubs could be held until later in the year.

Davies said the club's stay in Queensland isn't expected to be open-ended.

"We're planning at the moment to go for about seven weeks – three weeks of that pre-season phase, and then the first four games, probably," he said.

"[That's] unless in between time the government here in South Australia make a change to their border restrictions and then we'll probably have a conversation with the AFL at that point."
