About The Richmond Football Club Former Players & Officials Association
The Richmond Former Players and Officials Association ('Former Tigers') was formed in 1959. It celebrated its 50th birthday in 2009, with a great function at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The Association is a strong, vibrant and active group with events being held throughout the calendar year.
The RFPO&A enjoys a stable annual membership of over 300 members but it is always keen to involve all past players and officials of the Richmond Football Club and add to its membership.
More than anything else, 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.
