THERE'S been very little turnover in the leadership department of clubs over the pre-season, with just Port Adelaide and West Coast appointing new captains for 2024.

Meanwhile, Sydney and Richmond will lead with a standalone captain after having co-captains in 2023.

Some clubs have opted for a streamlined two-person leadership team, while others have gone for a much bigger leadership group to lead their side into battle.

Take a look at who your club's captain, vice-captain and leadership group for 2024.

Captain: Jordan Dawson
Vice-captain: Brodie Smith, Ben Keays, Reilly O'Brien

Adelaide has added four new faces to an expanded leadership model in 2024 under skipper Jordan Dawson. The Crows will have an eight-man leadership group, with reigning club champion Dawson to captain the side for a second season. He will be supported by vice-captains Brodie Smith, Ben Keays and Reilly O'Brien. The four additions are forwards Darcy Fogarty and Lachlan Murphy and defenders Wayne Milera and Mitch Hinge, who coach Matthew Nicks described as 'standouts' for the role.

There's one new vice-captain for Brisbane in 2024 as the Lions have again gone with Harris Andrews and Lachie Neale at the top. In just his second season at the club after heading north from the Western Bulldogs, Josh Dunkley has been elevated alongside Hugh McCluggage as a deputy leader. The nine-man leadership group also contains Charlie Cameron, Cam Rayner, Brandon Starcevich, Jarrod Berry and Oscar McInerney.

Geelong has stuck to the same two-man leadership group from last season, with Patrick Dangerfield and Tom Stewart to lead the club in 2024 as captain and vice-captain, respectively. The duo were elevated to the roles ahead of last season following the retirement of premiership skipper Joel Selwood, who had led the Cats since 2017.

Gold Coast has opted for a more streamlined leadership set-up in Damien Hardwick's first season in charge, with two captains and two vice-captains rounding out a new four-man leadership group. Midfielder Touk Miller and ruckman Jarrod Witts have been retained as co-captains for 2024, while Noah Anderson has been elevated from the Suns' leadership group into the role of co-vice-captain alongside Sam Collins.

Toby Greene continues as standalone skipper in an unchanged leadership group for 2024. Greene was appointed sole captain last year in Adam Kingsley's first year at the club, with former co-captains Stephen Coniglio and Josh Kelly vice-captains under him. The increased responsibility served the 30-year-old well and he finished the year with a career-best 66 goals, a club champion award and the honour of being named All-Australian captain. Greene will be supported once again by Coniglio and Kelly, while Tom Green, Harry Perryman, Sam Taylor and Connor Idun all remain in the leadership group for a second straight season.

For the fifth consecutive year, Max Gawn and Jack Viney will be Melbourne's only official leaders, with the Demons taking the same streamlined approach that has served them well in recent seasons.

There's been a changing of the guard at North Melbourne, with a new-look leadership group on board to support co-captains Luke McDonald and Jy Simpkin this season. Young gun Nick Larkey has been elevated to vice-captain following a career-best 2023 and two seasons as a leader, while Aidan Corr, Bailey Scott and Harry Sheezel round out the Roos' six-man leadership group. Corr was previously a leader in 2022, while young guns Scott and Sheezel, who is the youngest member of the group at 19, have been voted in for the first time.

Port Adelaide has announced an all-new leadership group for 2024, with breakout midfielder Connor Rozee named captain to replace the recently retired Tom Jonas. Rozee, who will wear the club's No.1 guernsey, becomes the eighth captain in the club's AFL era. He will be supported by good mate Zak Butters as the Power head in a new on-field direction. Sam Powell-Pepper, Dan Houston and Willem Drew have been elevated to the leadership group.

Toby Nankervis has been named Richmond's sole captain for 2024 after sharing the role with Dylan Grimes over the past two seasons. The Tigers have moved back to a more traditional leadership set-up in Adem Yze's first year at the helm, with Grimes opting to step down from the captaincy to allow more energy for his own individual game and life balance. Liam Baker, Tom Lynch, Jayden Short are new deputies for Nankervis.

Jack Steele will take the reins for a fourth consecutive season at St Kilda - and his third as standalone captain - as part of a five-man leadership group for 2024. Callum Wilkie will be the Saints' vice-captain, while Jack Sinclair, Seb Ross and Rowan Marshall round out the leadership group. Marshall has been elevated into the role for the first time, while Tim Membrey comes outs of the group from last season.

In a sign of how highly rated Callum Mills is internally at the Swans, the midfielder will lead Sydney on his own in 2024 despite the fact he'll miss the first half of the year with a shoulder injury following the now infamous Mad Monday mishap. The 26-year-old has been elevated to the position of sole captain, having shared the captaincy with veterans Luke Parker and Dane Rampe since 2022. Sydney is yet to officially announce its full leadership group, but it's likely Parker and Rampe will be the lead contenders to lead the club in Mills' absence.

Luke Shuey's retirement has opened the door for the Eagles to have co-captains for just the second time in the club's 37-year history, with Oscar Allen and Liam Duggan set to lead in 2024. The new leaders will be supported by sole vice-captain Tom Barrass, who retains the role held last season, in a three-man leadership group. Premiership defender Jeremy McGovern has stepped back from the leadership group to focus on his football after being restricted to nine games last season.

Taylor Duryea, Aaron Naughton and Caleb Daniel remain from last season, while Jack Macrae has come out of the leadership group in 2024.
