Sixteen premiership cups, seven Brownlow medals, the 1874 best & fairest trophy, the league's first premiership team, 'talking lockers' and much, much more.

Where can you see it? Only at the Essendon Hall of Fame.

Situated at the Windy Hill precinct, the Hall of Fame celebrates the history and achievements of the mighty Bombers, from 1872 to the present day.

2013 Supplements Scandal


The biggest story in AFL history saw an investigation into Essendon players being given a range of supplements to improve performance and increase recovery times duing 2011-2012. It was deemed the program was poorly managed and monitored due to a lack of care by Essendon officials and coaching staff. In August 2013, the AFL commission handed down the harshest penalty in its history.

The Essendon Football Club was fined $2m. The coach James Hird was suspended for 12 months. Other officials were fined. Essendon Football Club lost its 2013 premiership points and demoted to 9th position.
