The Collingwood Football Club has a rich and storied past, full of characters and colour, soul-stirring highs and heartbreaking lows, magic moments and unforgettable memories.
We honour that past without being mired in it. It informs much of what we still do.
Our history is important because it helps makes us Collingwood. Everything that has happened to us along the way since 1892 – both good and bad – makes us who we are as a footy club. So it's worth knowing about, and celebrating. That’s why we’ve introduced this special History & Heritage hub.
This is where we’ll keep you up to date with all that’s happening in the world of Magpie history – whether that be celebrating milestones, honouring past players, revealing things we’ve learned about our past, or unveiling new finds that we’ve added to the collection. You’ll find all that – and much more – included here.
Of course, if you just want to find out something about a particular player or check out some stats and records, then follow the links from this hub or go straight to our history website, Forever. It contains records and stories of every Collingwood player, stats and records from every season and every game, plus a plethora of feature articles and interesting stories. It's well worth a look.
In the meantime, keep coming back here to find out more about what we're doing to celebrate our history. Get involved through the Magpie Faithful or the Archives, or simply by getting in touch. This is our club, and its past belongs to all of us.
