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.
