Football Australia have opened nominations for the Hall of Fame class of 2022.
The Football Australia Hall of Fame recognises extraordinary accomplishments over a career by players, coaches, referees, administrators, media and participants who have made a significant contribution to the game in Australia.
Nominations close on 30 August 2022 at 11:59pm AEST, with the football community encouraged to submit their recommendations for the next inductees.
A panel of Football Australia historians will judge the nominations which should meet the following criteria:
- Players have to be retired for a period of five years
- Coaches, referees, administrators or media representatives may be recognised for their overall sustained contribution to the game
- Recipients of an Australian Football Award may also be considered
- Nominees must be Australian citizens
- All nominations must be for individuals
Names will be sent to the panel for deliberation on 2 September, with an announcement of inductees to occur on 16 September.
A presentation will be made to inductees at an Australia Cup final pre-match event on 2 October.
