Johnny Warren Medal

Johnny Warren Medal Betting

The Johnny Warren Medal is the award given to the best player in the Hyundai A-League. It was first awarded in the National Soccer League in 1990, and upon the NSL’s demise in November 2004, was carried forward into the A-League. It is named after former Australia national football (soccer) team captain and tireless promoter of football (soccer) in Australia, Johnny Warren.

The most interesting fact about the award is that it’s voted upon by the actual players of the game. This is much different to the Brownlow Medal, AFL Football’s best and fairest award, which is voted on after each game by the umpires.
