Collingwood and Melbourne’s three nominees have been announced in the lead up to the AFL Players’ Association MVP awards on Tuesday, September 13.
The nomination for the MVP Award is a two-stage process. The first involves players nominating three teammates for the award, before three nominees from every club are presented to the wider playing group for a vote to decide the winner. Players cannot vote for their own teammates in stage two of the process.
