Note: The premiership was determined by the final ladder standings. No finals were played.

 

A protest from Port Melbourne in relation to two games against North Melbourne was dismissed by the VFA at a meeting on Friday 24 September 1898.

If upheld, a play-off for the premiership would have been required between Footscray and Port Melbourne.
