About this title


The Collingwood Football Club, nicknamed the Magpies or less formally the Pies, is an Australian rules football club which plays in the Australian Football League (AFL). Formed in 1892, the club was named after the inner-Melbourne suburb and city of Collingwood, and was originally based at Victoria Park in Abbotsford; the club is now based in the nearby Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct in Melbourne, playing its home games at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and with its training and administrative base at Olympic Park Oval and the Holden Centre. Collingwood is the most supported club in the AFL,[2][3] and has consistently attracted much higher than average crowds to its home games than other clubs in the league,[4][5] and had a league record of 71,516 members in the 2011 season. This spike in membership registration can mainly be attributed to the winning of the 2010 AFL Premiership.[6] This record was again broken in 2013, with club reaching a new high of 80,000 members. Collingwood is regarded as one of Australia's most popular clubs, being the highest attended and most viewed professional sports club in the nation.[7] Collingwood's home guernsey consists of black and white stripes, matching the colours of an Australian magpie. Throughout its history, the club has developed rivalries with cross-town Melbourne based clubs Carlton, Richmond, Essendon and the Brisbane Lions despite being based two states away. Historically one of the most successful clubs in the league, Collingwood has won 15 VFL/AFL premierships, the third-most of any team. Collingwood has played in a record 43 grand finals (including replays), winning 15, drawing two and losing 26 (also a record). The club fields a reserves team in the Victorian Football League and a women's team in the AFL Women's competition. It also owns and operates a netball team in the National Netball League.
