Hall of Fame

The Centenary Season saw the formation of the Hall of Fame, with 136 inducted, 100 players, 10 coaches, 10 umpires, 10 administrators and 6 media representatives who had made a significant contribution since football's inception in 1858.

Twelve of the 100 players were elevated to Legends of the Game status. Four have been added subsequently.
