Since joining the competition in 1908, Richmond has won ten premierships, the most recent victory being in 1980. This currently sees the club ranked sixth in terms of premierships won.
In recent times, unstable administration on and off the field has troubled Richmond, none more so than in 1990, when a large debt almost forced the club to fold. Richmond has since regained a strong financial position, but with the exception of finals appearances in 1995, 2001 and 2013, the club has underachieved on the field.
Since the club's inception in 1885, it has been based at the Punt Road Oval, formerly known as the Richmond Cricket Ground, just a few hundred metres to the east of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Tigers have played their home games at the MCG since 1965. The club's training and administration headquarters are at the Punt Road Oval and from 2011 are called the ME Bank Centre.
Based in a traditionally working-class area, Richmond has long-standing rivalries with cross town Melbourne based clubs, Collingwood, Carlton and Essendon.
