2400 games: Collingwood played their 2400th match for premiership points in Round Four, joining the then-VFL as a founding member of the competition in 1897. Collingwood is the first club to reach this mark, with an overall record of 1463 wins through Round Four, 911 losses and 26 draws

Most Father-Son combined games: Essendon's Jobe Watson played his 158th game in Round Four, bringing his and his father Tim's combined tally to 465 games. This puts them equal seventh on the all-time list for combined father-son games. Ahead of them are Fletcher 632 (264 for Ken and 368 for Dustin*), Tuck 591 (426 for Michael and 166 for Shane through Round Four), Silvagni 551 (239 for Sergio and 312 for Stephen), Cloke 511 (333 for David and 178 for Travis through Round Four), Scarlett 498 (212 for John and 284 for Matthew), Ablett 484 (248 for Gary Snr and 236 for Gary Jr through Round Four).
