Formed in 1859, Geelong is the second-oldest club in the AFL, behind the Melbourne Demons. The club was a foundation member of the Victorian Football League in 1897, and has won nine premierships overall, including three premierships in five years from 2007 to 2011. Prior to the 2007 flag the Cats had endured a lengthy premiership drought, having not tasted success since 1963. As part of that dry spell they lost four grand finals in seven years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including losing both the 1992 and 1994 grand finals to West Coast.

Geelong has played West Coast 47 times for 23 wins apiece, with 1 draw coming in Round 20 2003. The two clubs have played off in finals 5 times including the two 1990s grand finals, with West Coast winning 4 of those games.

16 clashes have been at Subiaco Oval, with both sides winning 8 apiece.

3 clashes have been at the WACA, with West Coast winning 2 to the Cats' 1.

22 clashes have been at Kardinia Park, with Geelong winning 13 to West Coast's 8 (with one draw).

4 clashes (all finals) have been at the MCG, with the Eagles winning 3 to Geelong's 1.

2 clashes have been at Waverley Park, with West Coast winning both.


West Coast's biggest win against Geelong was by 80 points in the 1994 Grand Final. Geelong's biggest win over the Eagles was by 135 points in Round 13 2008, the club's second biggest loss of all time.
