Hall of Fame: Gala Dinner
Bienially, usually on the first Friday in July, AFL Tasmania hosts a gala dinner to celebrate the Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame. Guests attending this black tie event enjoy a superb dinner matched with fine wines and bask in the great stories of our game. At the gala dinner we cherish the uniqueness of our Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame, which remains the only football event in the nation that enshrines great contributions from individuals, clubs, teams and games on a truly whole of state basis. We also recognise the special and distinctive elements of our great game in Tasmania such as Queenstown’s Gravel Oval and the King Island Football Association. Individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Tasmanian football on and off the playing field are inducted and a selected current inductee is elevated to ‘Legend’ status while a current Legend joins the exclusive rank of ‘Icon’. Their greatness in our game is enshrined forever.
