Hall of Fame
Inaugurated by Football Victoria in 2010, the Hall of Fame recognises extraordinary performance over a career by participants who have made a significant contribution to the game in Victoria. Having deliberated on the concept since its formation in 2008, Football Victoria's Historical Committee received strong support from Tony Dunkerley, President of Football Victoria at the time. Momentum continued via the input of revered historian Roy Hay and former Australian international Ted Smith, who helped establish the Football Australia equivalent over a decade earlier. Nomination and selection criteria were soon drafted and ultimately ratified in early 2010, with the Hall of Fame officially launched as part of the Gold Medal night celebrations later that year. In all, 28 individuals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, from influential founding figures in the early establishment of the sport to modern day greats on the pitch.
