Western Region Football League

--- Western Region Football League

The Western Region Football League is the premier Australian Rules league in Melbourne's western suburbs.

The mission of the Western Region Football League is to promote, co-ordinate and administer Australian Rules football through its member clubs in Melbourne's west for the benefit of participants, no matter what level of skill, age or cultural background. 

With 29 clubs ranging from Under 9's through to Senior Level, the league boasts one of Melbourne's largest and strongest football competitions.

The league was formed in 1931, as the Footscray District Football League. In 1988 the league absorbed clubs from the West Suburban Football League and in 2000, to reflect the fact that the league had expanded across the western suburbs, it changed its name to the Western Region Football League.
