Results and statistics for the Victorian Football League season of 1932.

Premiership season[edit]

In 1932, the VFL competition consisted of twelve teams of 18 on-the-field players each, plus one substitute player, known as the 19th man. A player could be substituted for any reason; however, once substituted, a player could not return to the field of play under any circumstances.

Teams played each other in a home-and-away season of 18 rounds; matches 12 to 18 were the "home-and-way reverse" of matches 1 to 7.

Once the 18 round home-and-away season had finished, the 1932 VFL Premiers were determined by the specific format and conventions of the "Page-McIntyre system".

Notable events[edit]

  • Rain had delayed the resurfacing of the Melbourne Cricket Ground, so Melbourne arranged to play its first three matches for the year at the Motordrome. These were the only three VFL matches ever staged at the venue.
  • In round 11, due to the effects of an extremely strong cross-wind that blew all day at the Lake Oval, the up-to-that-time-unbeaten South Melbourne lose to Collingwood, kicking an atrocious 5.17 (47) to their opponent's far more accurate 7.8 (50).
  • After the match was over, it was revealed that Richmond wingman Alan Geddes had played the entire second half of the Grand-Final with a broken jaw.
