Victorian Football League

Photos by Competition and Team



Introduction

The Victorian Football League (VFL, became the Australian Football League (AFL) and is the premier Australian Rules Football Competition in the country.

The AFL now has two clubs in each of Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland as well as the many Victorian teams.

This site focused on the work of Charles Boyles, roughly 1928-61, and therefore uses the historical term 'VFL' thoughout the site. During this time especially, South Austtralia and Western Australia had strong independant competitions.

There are many websites about club teams and football history. A good starting place is Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_VFL/AFL


Brief History

The Victorian Football League (VFL) began in 1897 as a breakaway from the established VFA competition by some of the most successful clubs. The competition was originally between eight clubs.

Richmond, and Melbourne University joined the VFL in 1908. The biggest change to the VFL team list occured in 1925 when North Melbourne, Hawthorn and Footscray joined.

The 1980s the VFL broadened it's focus. The South Melbourne relocated to Sydney and became the Sydney Swans in 1982. In 1987 the Brisbane Bears and West Coast Eagles joined the competition. In 1990 the VFL renamed itself the Australian Football League (AFL) to reflect the national focus. Since 1990 there have been more interstate teams join the AFL, and the Fitzroy Team merged with the Brisbane Bears to form the Brisbane Lions.

Prior to the 1980s, all VFL games were played on a Saturday afternoon. During the 1980s the League began playing matches on Friday night and on Sunday afternoons.

1924-25 Black knickers for Home team and White knickers for Away Team

1968 Introducion of country recruitment zones throughout Victoria Pre 1968 zones are Metro only

Interchange rules have changed over time. The Interchange rule can assist in identification of team photos as the player count in the photo will change, ie in the 1930s 18 + 1 substitute = 19 in most photos and from 1946, 18 + 2 substitutes = 20 in most photos.

Following for VFL only.
Prior to 1930 No Interchange, Team must play one player short
1930 allow one substitute
1946 allow two substitutes
1978 change from two substitutes to two interchanges
1994 allow three interchanges
1998 allow four interchanges
2011 allow three interchanges and one substitute
