The 2007 NAB Cup was the pre-season competition of the Australian Football League's 2007 season. It culminated in the Grand Final on 17 March, which was won by Carlton.

Prize money[edit]

A$220,000 was awarded to the winning club (by comparison, the prize money for the winner of the AFL Grand Final in 2005 was only nominally larger at $250,000). Smaller amounts were awarded to clubs based on participation and progression through the competition.

  • Runner-up: $110,000
  • Losing semi-finalists: $55,000
  • Week 2 losers: $27,000
  • Week 1 losers: $16,500
  • Total prize money: $682,000

It was announced that if a club could win both the pre-season and regular premierships in the same season, that the club would receive a bonus $1 million. Half will be distributed among the players, while the other half goes to the club.[1] The last club to win the double was Essendon in 2000.
