Since joining the competition in 1908, the Richmond Tigers have won 10 premierships with the most recent win taking place in 1980.
The Richmond Tigers are iconically associated with the Punt Road Oval, located right near the Melbourne Cricket Ground, which is commonly referred to as Tigerland. Richmond has ongoing rivalries with neighbouring suburbs Collingwood, Carlton, and Essendon.
Between 1996 and 2004 the Tigers become notorious for losing many matches and continued to claim the wooden spoon victory between 2005 and 2007. The team showed some improvement for the 2007 season and started off on a note of optimism, but ended up having a terrible start to the 2007 season where they lost their first 9 matches.
Finally in 2013 the Tigers produced their best season in 12 years where they qualified for their first finals series since 2001. They made it to the finals for the next four years and even though they didn’t win a flag they certainly improved their name in the game.
