AFL: 4 (1975, 1977, 1996, 1999)

North Melbourne Football Club, nicknamed The Kangaroos, is the fourth oldest Australian rules football club in the AFL and is one of the oldest sporting clubs in Australia and the world. It is based at the Arden Street Oval in the inner Melbourne suburb of North Melbourne, but plays its home matches at the nearby Docklands Stadium.

The club is characterised by its inner-city location, its working class background, the doggedness of successive administrators and a iron-like vision to survive and eventually succeed, despite the odds. The club's mascot is a grey or red kangaroo, dating from the middle of the 20th century. The club is also unofficially known as The "Shinboners", a term which dates back to its 19th century abattoir-worker origins. The club's motto is "Victoria Amat Curam", Latin for "Victory Demands Dedication".
