The St Kilda Football Club, nicknamed The Saints, is an Australian rules football club based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The club plays in the Australian Football League, the sport's premier league.

The football club was established in 1873 and its name originates from the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda. St Kilda were a foundation team of the Victorian Football Association (VFA) in 1877 and later, in 1897, became a foundation team in the Victorian Football League (VFL), which was renamed the Australian Football League (AFL) prior to the start of the 1990 season.[1]

Despite being a foundation team in the league, St Kilda have only won a single premiership, a famous one-point win in the 1966 VFL Grand Final.[2] St Kilda have, however, had various other achievements including, most recently, being the minor premiers of the 2009 AFL season[3] and 2009 and 2010 grand finalists.

St Kilda developed a reputation as perennial underachievers,[4] much of this attributed to their record of finishing last more often than any other club in the league,[5] as well as having the lowest all-time win percentage of any team still playing in the league.[6]
