Depends. The AFL derived from the VFL. The VFL started in 1897 and that premiership won by Essendon. The VFL was renamed AFL in 1990 and that premiership won by Collingwood.
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
Brisbane Lions. It was their third straight premiership.
Collingwood in 1990, because before then it was the VFL. As originally being the VFL competition, the first Aussie Rules Premiership in the VFL was won in 1897 by Essendon.
