Bio

The Sports Group is proud to deliver exclusive global commercial management services on behalf of Hawthorn midfielder and AFL superstar, Tom Mitchell. 

In 2018, Tom Mitchell was awarded the Brownlow Medal – the game’s highest individual honour. Since joining the Hawthorn Football Club at the end of 2016, Tom Mitchell has twice won the Peter Crimmins Medal for Club ‘Best and Fairest’ and earned selection in the 2017 and 2018 All-Australian team. In the ultimate commendation from his peers, Tom Mitchell was also named the 2018 AFL Players’ Association’s ‘Most Valuable Player’. 

In season 2018 Mitchell notched up an astonishing 848 disposals – the most ever recorded in a premiership season, and almost 100 disposals ahead of any other player. On 11 occasions throughout the season, he amassed 40 or more disposals, including a record 54-disposal outing against Collingwood in Round 1.

Tom Mitchell’s decision to leave the Sydney Swans for Hawthorn signalled the start of his stunning transformation from a very good player into a fully-fledged star. He is now considered the game’s premier player.

Hawks Coach Alistair Clarkson has said he sees his gun midfielder as a 10-year player for the Club. It would be tough to find a more credentialed future leader than Tom Mitchell.
