Richmond

The Richmond Football Club, nicknamed the Tigers, is an Australian rules football club which competes in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Since the club’s inception in 1885, it has been based at the Punt Road Oval, formerly known as the Richmond Cricket Ground, a few hundred metres to the east of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). The Tigers have played their home games at the MCG since 1965. The club’s training and administration headquarters are at the Punt Road Oval and from 2011 is called the ME Bank Centre.

Based in a traditionally working-class area, Richmond has long-standing rivalries with cross town Melbourne based clubs, Collingwood, Carlton and Essendon.
