Powerade Breakthrough Player Award

Introduced in 2007, the Powerade Breakthrough Player Award is designed to recognise and reward the best emerging young talent in SANFL’s League competition.

To be eligible, players must be aged 23 and under as well as having played 10 Statewide Super League games or less at the start of the year.

Each season, one player receives a weekly nomination with an overall winner chosen from the weekly nominees by a panel headed by SANFL’s General Manager Football and Head of Talent.
