The 1992 AFL season was the 96th season of the Australian Football League (AFL), the highest level senior Australian rules football competition in Australia, which was known as the Victorian Football League until 1989. The season featured fifteen clubs, ran from 21 March until 26 September, and comprised a 22-game home-and-away season followed by a finals series featuring the top six clubs.

Prior to the season, the AFL stopped serving as the administrator of state-level football in Victoria, and the Victorian State Football League (VSFL) was established in its place. The Victorian AFL clubs' under-19s competition and zone-based recruiting were abolished, and the reserves competition came under VSFL control.

The premiership was won by the West Coast Eagles, after it defeated Geelong by 28 points in the 1992 AFL Grand Final. It was West Coast's first premiership, and was the first premiership won by a non-Victorian club following the league's interstate expansion.

Finals series

Main article: 1992 AFL finals series

The AFL used a modified version of the McIntyre Final Six, after criticism of the original Final Six system. The difference to the original version was that First Semi-final would be contested between the loser of the Qualifying final and the Elimination Final winner which had finished in a lower qualifying position on the ladder, while the Second Semi-final would be contested between the winner of the Qualifying final and the Elimination Final winner which had finished in a higher qualifying position on the ladder. This system would be retained for the following season before being replaced by the McIntyre Final Eight System.
