The panel will be chaired by Ben Buckley and include some FFA Board members, former players and media representatives, including FourFourTwo.

The new Australian Football Awards recognise players at a professional and non professional level, as well asĀ volunteers, coaches andĀ referees, and we see itĀ as an important way of bringing the various strands of the football family together.

Part of the new awards is the Team Of The Year accolade. It doesn't matter about age or theĀ level your team plays at, providing your club is registered with the FFA you are in with a chance to winĀ at the Australian Football Awards Gala Dinner on 11 June in Sydney.Ā 

The winning team will be invited to attend theĀ Gala Dinner, which will also include the Qantas Socceroos, as guests of FFA.

However you'll have to be quick as nominations close Friday 15 May. Click here for further details.
