Hawthorn Hawks 2022 AFL TV schedule, squad and team guide

Can incoming coach Sam Mitchell lead the Hawks out of a difficult rebuild?

AFL fans who lived under the tyranny of the Hawks from 2008-2015 have been enjoying the club's recent woes. But Hawthorn fans most certainly are not, and are ready for a return to the finals. A fairly miserable 2021 campaign was characteristic of the club's latest seasons, but there are some bright spots to look to.

Last year, the Demons showed us just how damaging an elite defence can be. Hawthorn seem to have all the makings of an intimidating back line, and we'll see just how far they can take the club in 2022.

It's a new era for the club with 4-time premiership-winning coach Alistair Clarkson being succeeded by protege Sam Mitchell. The 39-year-old has big shoes to fill, but luckily he knows a thing or two about winning flags.

Hawthorn Hawks history

The Hawks were founded in 1902 and are the youngest of the Victorian teams in the AFL. So far, they have won 13 VFL/AFL premierships.

The Hawks enjoyed a particularly successful run in the early 2010s, winning consecutive premierships in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Since then, they've made the finals twice more but lost in the semi-finals to the Western Bulldogs in 2016 and the Demons in 2018. They finished 15th on the ladder in 2020 and 14th in 2021.

The club's current home ground is the MCG. They also play four games per year at their second ground of York Park in Launceston.
