Formed in 1959 by a group of supporters to show their support of the Richmond Football Club, the best team in the Australian Football League. The Official Richmond Cheer Squad is not only the largest Cheer Squad within the A.F.L. but was also the first.
The Cheer Squad is an official part of the Richmond Football Club, although it is organized and run by a Committee elected by the members of the Squad. These committee members are not paid by the club and volunteer their time to help support the club that we all love.
