A Short History Of The Richmond Tigers
Born in Richmond in 1885, the Richmond Football Club won two premierships in the VFA before joining the VFL (now known as the AFL) in 1908. The club has gone on to enjoy sensational success, winning 13 premierships, with the most recent one coming in 2020. To date, five Richmond players have been inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame, including Kevin Bartlett, Jack Dyer, and Ian Stewart. The club made its first Grand Final in 1919, losing to Collingwood. The Tigers exacted their revenge the following year, defeating Collingwood to secure their first flag and then went on to defeat favourites, Carlton in 1921 to claim back-to-back premierships. After finishing 13th on the ladder in 2016, Richmond went on to win the Grand Final in 2017, marking the biggest ladder jump from one season to the next. That same year, star player, Dustin Martin, became the first player to win a Premiership medal, Brownlow Medal and the Norm Smith Medal in the same season.
