Adelaide, South Australia
Coming from a famous South Australian footballing family, Brad Ebert was drafted by the West Coast Eagles in the 2013 National Draft. He made an immediate impact at the Eagles, earning a Rising Star nomination in 2008 and playing 76 games over 4 seasons.
Ahead of the 2012 season Ebert returned home to South Australia to play for the Port Adelaide Football Club, the club his father, uncle and cousin represented in the SANFL and AFL.
A strong midfielder, Ebert is renowned for his ability to win contested ball, tackling pressure, and outworking opponents. He finished runner up in the Port Adelaide Best and Fairest in 2012, and his professionalism, maturity and approach to the game helped keep him injury free as he played his 100th consecutive game of AFL in 2016.
A respected leader, Ebert was nominated into Port’s leadership group early into his time at the club, and his role on and off the field has been recognised as one of great mentoring. Celebrating his 250th game in 2020, Brad has made his own name as part of the Ebert dynasty and etched himself as one of the best and most consistent midfielders to have played at Port Adelaide.
