The first club was the Melbourne Football Club, started in 1859 and the Victorian Football Association which was started in 1877. There were eight teams: Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Fitzroy, Geelong, Melbourne, South Melbourne, and St. Kilda. The game now came to be known as the “Melbourne Rules”, “Victorian Rules” or “Australian Rules” and soon began to spread from Victoria into other Australian colonies.
