EBERT, Russell

05/11/2021

The SANFL and SA Football Commission are deeply saddened by the passing of SA Football Hall of Fame Member Russell Ebert OAM. Russell was a champion of the game in our state, leaving an indelible mark through his on-field brilliance as the only player to win four Magarey Medals.

An inaugural member of the Australian Football Hall of Fame, Russell played 392 games for Port Adelaide, earned three premiership medals and six best-and-fairests. He was an inaugural inductee into the SA Football Hall of Fame in 2002.

Russell was a true gentlemen who will be remembered for his tremendous service and contribution on and off-field to the League, football and broader community in South Australia.

On behalf of Chairman The Hon Rob Kerin, CEO Darren Chandler, the SA Football Commission and SANFL we extend our deepest sympathy to Di and the Ebert family along with the PAFC football community.
