The 1937 Victorian Football League season was the 41st season of the elite Australian rules football competition.
In 1937, the VFL competition consisted of twelve teams of 18 on-the-field players each, plus one substitute player, known as the 19th man. A player could be substituted for any reason; however, once substituted, a player could not return to the field of play under any circumstances.
Teams played each other in a home-and-away season of 18 rounds; matches 12 to 18 were the "home-and-way reverse" of matches 1 to 7.
Once the 18 round home-and-away season had finished, the 1937 VFL Premiers were determined by the specific format and conventions of the Page-McIntyre System.
Geelong defeated Collingwood 18.14 (122) to 12.18 (90), in front of a crowd of 88,540 people. (For an explanation of scoring see Australian rules football).
