“It’s an honour to receive this medal. I remember watching Harry Kewell and to be presented this award is phenomenal and I’m truly blessed. To be recognised by my peers, the fellow players in the competition, is a great privilege.”

Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) recently held an online ceremony for the 2020 PFA Players’ Awards, ‘celebrating the significant contribution of the game’s established and emerging players’. It’s the Logies of Footballers in Australia if people actually cared for the Logies.

Just to give you an overview, the 2020 PFA Players’ Awards were voted on by the PFA’s members with consideration on the performances of PFA members during the 2019/20 Australian football season.

“Last season was unique in many ways, so I think it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate the extraordinary achievements and efforts of our members on the Australian and global stage during a period like no other.”

– Alex Wilkinson, PFA President

Since they could not be there in person, due to COVID-19, the PFA engaged in local and global designers to create unique illustrations of each of the award recipients. The aim was to help celebrate the winners and promote the game’s diverse football culture in Australia and it’s place in the world of our beautiful game.
