The Hawthorn Football Club (Hawks) competes in the Australian Football League (AFL).
The Hawthorn Football Club has a proud history, having grown from a small suburban club to become one of the powers of the national league.
The Hawks' started at Glenferrie Oval joining the VFL in 1925. The Mayblooms (name before the Hawks) became the perennial whipping boys of the competition.
In 2006, Hawthorn's training and administration facilities were relocated to Waverley Park. Since 2007 Hawthorn have played 4 games a year at York Park in Launceston, Tasmania, with the remaining games played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (home ground).
