AFLW Season 7 MVP Nominees

The nominees for Season 7 of the 2022 AFLW Most Valuable Player Awards, proudly presented by Snaffle have been revealed.

Voting for the AFLW MVP, Most Courageous, Best First-Year Player and Best Captain awards is a two-stage process, with players nominating their teammates in stage one before selecting from a competition-wide field in stage two.

Players cannot vote for a player from their own club during stage two of the voting process.

The AFL Players’ Association will recognise the achievements of the award winners with a special in person event on Wednesday November 23, and will be revealed across the AFLPA’s social media channels.

We thank the following sponsors for their support of the AFLW Most Valuable Player Awards:
