Brownlow Medal – Australian Sports

The Brownlow Medal is a prestigious award in Australian sports given to the best and fairest player in the Australian Football League (AFL). It’s been awarded since 1924 and the winner announced at the AFL Awards Night.

The Chas Brownlow Trophy is better known as the Brownlow Medal or simply as the Brownlow. This award is given to a player judged to be the “fairest and best” in the Australian Football League (AFL) during the regular season.

This prestigious award is considered to be the highest honour an individual player may receive in the AFL. The Brownlow winner is determined by votes cast after each game by the officiating umpires.
