Hall of Fame[edit]

The Geelong Football Club Hall of Fame reflects the contributions of players and coaches who have made significant contributions to the club across their respective careers. The club inducts individuals into the Hall of Fame on a case-by-case basis, and although there is no provision for automatic inclusion, the individual needs to satisfy a selection of criteria to be considered for induction. Consideration will only be given once the player or coach has been retired for a minimum of three years, and individuals who have both played and coached for Geelong may have their records combined for consideration.[52]

Players generally need to meet a minimum of four of the following ten criteria to be considered for inclusion:[52]

  1. Ten years’ service as a VFL/AFL player (including on the rookie list)
  2. Played 200 senior matches (does not include pre-season, night series or representative matches)
  3. Club captain for at least two years
  4. Winner of the Carji Greeves Medal
  5. Placed in top-three for Carji Greeves Medal on at least four occasions (applies from 1960 onwards)
  6. Premiership player (with each premiership counting as one guideline being met)
  7. Selected for All-Australian team
  8. Winner of the Brownlow Medal or Champion of the Colony
  9. Placed in top-three for Brownlow Medal on at least two occasions
  10. Winner of the Coleman Medal or competition's leading goalkicker award

Coaches generally need to meet the following three criteria to be considered for inclusion:[52]

  1. Six years’ service as the VFL/AFL senior coach
  2. Premiership coach (with each premiership counting as one guideline being met)
  3. Qualified for the VFL/AFL finals series on at least five occasions as senior coach

Life membership[edit]

Whilst the club may award life membership to any person who has dedicated outstanding service to the Geelong Football Club, players automatically qualify for life membership once they achieve any of the following criteria for the club:[53]
