Welcome to the Former Tigers
This site has been created to help past players and officials of the Richmond Football Club keep in touch with each other, and informs everyone about the events and gatherings of the association.
Every past player of this great AFL football club who has played at least one senior, reserves or U-19 match with the Richmond Football Club is entitled to become a member. Any former official, whether they were in club management and administration, a member of the medical team, a trainer, doorman, runner or bootstudder, is also welcome to join.
More importantly, the Former Tigers are here to help and support past players and officials. Mostly this is by social engagement and friendship, but if there ever was a mission for the Former Tigers, it would definitely include caring for those past players and officials in need, whether it is financial, health and wellbeing or any special need at a certain time.
