Preserve and honour

The Hawthorn Football Club is shaped by the people, games and experiences that have formed its journey since 1925.

For 32 years Hawthorn was known as the easy beats, not winning a treasured premiership until 1961. Since then, we have become the most successful team of the modern era, winning another twelve premierships in the past five decades.

The Foundation is committed to preserving and honouring the past so all Hawthorn supporters and the wider community have the opportunity to understand the role the Hawks have played in shaping the Australian sporting landscape of today.
