1989 - 1990 was the transition from VFL to AFL. The Collingwood football club won the first AFL premiership in 1990.
well if you mean "what year did vfl stop and afl start?" then the answers is 1990 and collingwood won the first afl premiership in 1990
I'm pretty sure it started with 10 teams in 1897
it started in 1877
Well AFL or VFL before AFL there was VFL, it has been around for years in Australia.
1977 had a VFL Grand Final Draw - Collingwood and North Melbourne. North Melbourne prevailed the week after. There has not been one in AFL before. (VFL became AFL in 1990)
The first season known as the AFL was 1990. Previously the competition was known as the VFL. The first VFL season was 1897. This was a name change only, and all records, premierships etc. were carried over from the VFL to the AFL.
the afl started in Victoria with the vfl and it has grown Eva since
The 'AFL' (Australian Football League) name has been around since 1990. The 'VFL' (Victorian Football League) change its name after expansion outside Victoria. The first season of the VFL was 1897 after team left the VFA to form a new league. Australian Rules Football (the SPORT played in the AFL) was first played in 1859.
I' believe it was in 1897; but it was merely VFL state football back then. The previous [opening] year of the VFL, in 1896, the top team of the league after the home-and-away matches won the 'flag' with no finals. The AFL commenced in 1990: Collingwood won the premiership that year.
Yes and they wont be playing finals this year!
Richmond's first season in the VFL (renamed AFL in 1990) was 1908.
Hawthorn first entered the afl in 1925 when the competition was the VFL
