Geelong Football Club | Cats

The co-founder of Australian Rules Football, Thomas Wills established the Geelong Football Club in July 1859, making it the 2nd oldest club of any football code in the world.

Wills formed Geelong Football Club for the same reason he and his cousin, Henry Harrison, had earlier established the Melbourne Football Club, to keep cricketers fit during the off-season.

The club assumed the Cats knickanme after a spate of losses early in the 1923 season prompted a cartoonist to suggest Geelong needed a black cat to bring it good luck, while centreman Edward Carji Greeves won the inaugural Brownlow Medal, an award for the best and fairest player instituted in memory of Charles Brownlow, who died in 1924.
