Hawthorn have honoured the work of those on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second annual Emergency Services Match in Round 17.

In a year like no other, the 2020 match was particularly pertinent to the club’s partner Emergency Services organisations in Victoria. The services have been considerably tested, first in response to the devastating bushfires at the beginning of the year and since then as they work on the frontline response to the pandemic.

Each year, the club's Emergency Service Match is an opportunity to thank these dedicated people while also raising awareness of the impact this work can have on the mental health and wellbeing of all of the people working tirelessly in these fields.

ROUND 17, 2020 Emergency Services Match

Blue Ribbon Cup


The Blue Ribbon Cup is played each year in honour of the courage and sacrifice of all Australian police officers and those that have fallen in the line of duty.

The long running match was first established in 2000 as a tribute to Victoria Police members, Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rodney Miller who were killed in the line of duty in 1998, the match continues to honour these fallen men as well as the courage and sacrifice of all Australian police officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

Players receive Blue Ribbon medals, with the best player from each team (voted by the opposing clubs CEO) awarded Silk-Miller Memorial Medals.

The Blue Ribbon Foundation was formed in 1988 to preserve the memory of Victoria Police members killed in the line of duty through the support of worthwhile community projects and programs. The foundation provides funding to Victoria’s public hospitals for the building of new and improved emergency facilities that can remember lives by saving others.
