Collingwood has announced the long-term contract extensions of superstar brotherly duo Nick and Josh Daicos, with each committing to a six-year deal extension.

Entering the league as famous father-son prospects following in the footsteps of icon father, Peter, the Daicos' have well and truly put their stamp on the AFL since their drafting.

Josh was a Magpies father-son selection in 2016, having played 96 games since that time and establishing himself as one of the league's premier wingmen. Nick followed suit in 2021, selected No. 4 overall, playing 44 games thus far and inserting himself in the Brownlow Medal conversation in just his second season.

Nick played in every one of Collingwood's 25 games last season, a remarkable feat considering his then-status as a first-year player, and claimed the AFL's Rising Star Award.

Collingwood General Manager of Football Graham Wright expressed his joy at seeing the brothers commit to the Pies for the long term.

"Josh and Nick are both quality young men and talented footballers and we are looking forward to seeing them in the black-and-white stripes for years to come," Wright said as part of a club statement on Wednesday afternoon.

"Josh continues to impress and has really shown consistency in his form across the last couple of seasons. The work that he puts into his craft as a footballer combined with his determination to become better every day should be commended.

"Nick, in only his second season and with 44 games under his belt at the elite level, is continuing to grow as a footballer.

"Like his brother Josh, Nick's professionalism, preparation and attention to detail is consistently elite and it is these habits which will hold them both in good stead for years to come.

"Both young men are great ambassadors for our Club. They are incredibly positive and outgoing people and have an openness and appetite to continue to learn and develop as people and footballers and we look forward to continuing to support that development at Collingwood.

"I would like to also acknowledge the role of Jeff Browne, Craig Kelly and the wider Collingwood Board for their continued endorsement of the AFL program."
