Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Collingwood Football Club (nicknamed The Magpies) is an Australian rules football club which plays in the Australian Football League (AFL). Formed in 1892, the club traditionally represented the inner-Melbourne suburb of Collingwood; however it has now moved its training and administration base to Gosch's Paddock and the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Centre, at Olympic Park in Melbourne. In 2000, Collingwood moved its home games from its traditional suburban home ground, Victoria Park, to the much larger Melbourne Cricket Ground. Collingwood is the biggest and most supported club in the AFL, and it is the most supported club in any sport in Australia. It has consistently attracted much higher than average crowds to its games than other Victorian clubs in the league. In 1970, 121,696 spectators watched Collingwood and Carlton contest the Grand Final, the record attendance for a football game of any code in Australia. In 2010 Collingwood beat their previous membership record of 46,430 members to reach 57,617 members, the largest membership base of all the AFL clubs. In 2011 that mark was beaten before the opening round to 60,000+.show more
