The 2006 Victorian Football League (VFL) is a semi-professional Australian Rules Football competition featuring 12 teams from Victoria and one team from Tasmania.
It was the 125th season of the Australian rules football competition.
Prior to the 2006 season, the VFL–AFL reserves affiliation which had existed for the previous three seasons between North Melbourne and Port Melbourne was terminated. In its place, North Melbourne arranged to be affiliated with both North Ballarat and Tasmania, with half of its reserves players allocated to each team. Port Melbourne continued as a stand-alone senior team in the competition.
As a result, the competition stayed constant at thirteen teams: ten VFL–AFL affiliations, one AFL reserves team (Geelong) and two stand-alone VFL teams (Port Melbourne and Frankston).
Prior to the season, Springvale came to an arrangement with the City of Casey to relocate to the new Casey Fields multi-sports complex in Cranbourne East. The club changed its name to the Casey Scorpions.
