The role of the Hall of Fame is to recognise and enshrine players, coaches, umpires, administrators, media representatives, events, teams and venues that have made a most significant contribution to the game of Australian Football in Queensland since its inception in 1866.
In 2008 AFL Queensland held the inaugural Queensland Australian Football Hall of Fame at which 150 players, coaches, officials, umpires and media representatives were inducted. Seven legends of the game were also inducted at that time – Arthur Collinson, Jason Dunstall, Harry O’Callaghan, Michael Voss, Leigh Matthews, Tom McArthur and Dick Verdon. Since 2008 a further three legends have been inducted Alan “Doc” Mackenzie, Marcus Ashcroft and John Blair.
A number of new Hall of Fame inductees have also been inducted over the past 11-year period at the annual J.A Grogan Medal Presentation Dinner.
In 2020, AFL Queensland will be conducting a Hall of Fame event. The event will be a great celebration of Queensland football where we will honour our past and present greats of the game in Queensland.
The Queensland Australian Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee’s function is to select and enshrine former players, coaches, umpires, media representatives, administrators and any other significant events or iconic feature associated with Queensland Australian Football. The committee is Chaired by AFL Queensland Chairman Darryl Bray and includes Peter Cummiskey, Dr Alan Mackenzie, Peter Blucher, Murray Bird and Jason Cotter.
