Preliminary List of Geelong College Footballers VFL/AFL (Australian Rules) for the period 1897 to 1989 and AFL from 1990 to 2016. The list does not include VFA players or VFL players from the period 1996 onwards after the VFA changed its name to VFL nor does it include VFL players after the establishment of the AFL.

Please note that this is not the final list. Assistance with identifying the pre-1897 and post-1897 lists have come from many individuals, and especially Mark Pennings and Col Hutchinson.
