Summary

Volume 2 is part of a series of five volumes about the origins of Australian football as it evolved in Victoria between 1858 to 1885. This volume addresses the formation of the Victorian Football Association and the maturation of the game. By the late 1870s there were so many clubs and disputes that it was agreed to form the Victorian Football Association (VFA). The formation clubs were senior and country clubs, and included Albert Park, Ballarat, Barwon, Beechworth, Carlton, Castlemaine, Geelong, Hotham, Inglewood, Melbourne, Rochester and St. Kilda. Other clubs such as Essendon, South Melbourne and East Melbourne joined over the following years.
