The 1908 Victorian Football League season was the 12th season of the elite Australian rules football competition.

Both Richmond Football Club and University Football Club were admitted to the VFL competition.

Premiership season

In 1908, the VFL competition consisted 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 1908 VFL Premiers were determined by the specific format and conventions of the amended "Argus system".
