Results and statistics for the Victorian Football League season of 1910.

Premiership season

In 1910, the VFL competition was comprised of ten teams of 18 on-the-field players each, with no "reserves", although any of the 18 players who had left the playing field for any reason could later resume their place on the field at any time during the match.

Each team played each other twice in a home-and-away season of 18 rounds.

Once the 18 round home-and-away season had finished, the 1910 VFL "Premiers" were determined by the specific format and conventions of the amended "Argus" system".

* The 1910 VFL Premiership team was Collingwood.
* The VFL's leading goalkicker was Dick Lee of Collingwood with 58 goals.
* "The Argus" newspaper's "Player of the Year", Dick Lee of Collingwood, was declared 1910 Champion of the Season.
* St Kilda, took the "wooden spoon" in 1910.

Notable Events

* T.W Sherrin manufactures special footballs for the Premiership Finals.
* In the last quarter of the round 4 match between Carlton and South Melbourne, Carlton's George Topping king-hit South Melbourne's Bert Streckfuss behind the play, causing spectators to jump the fence and particapate in an all-in melee. Topping was suspended for the remainder of 1910 and all of 1911 as a result of the incident.
* Field umpire A. Noseda awards 100 free kicks in a single match (round 8 match between South Melbourne and St Kilda).
* VFL conducts an inquiry into allegations that particular players from Carlton, Fitzroy, Melbourne, and South Melbourne had been paid to play "dead". In particular, Carlton's Doug Gillespie, Alex "Bongo" Lang, and Doug Fraser were investigated (the inquiry dealt with Lang and Fraser behind closed doors). Gillespie was exonerated, while Lang and Fraser were each suspended for five years.
* Carlton player/Secretary Arthur Charles "Shooter" Ford was charged with abusing and physically threatening the field umpire (off the field) after Carlton's round 14 match against Fitzroy. Ford was suspended for 12 months and was debarred from his role as Club Secretary. There was speculation that the issue between the two was connected with the suspension of George Topping earlier in the season.
