The Kyabram District Football League (KDFL) is an Australian rules football league in Victoria. It is made up of 13 teams, following Yea's departure in 2007 to join the Yarra Valley Mountain Football League, and Longwood's admission in 2010 following the collapse of the Benalla District Football League. The KDFL is made up of smaller country town football clubs in the Goulburn Valley. The majority of these towns have a population base of around 500 people, each of these clubs fields three football sides in the Senior, Reserve and Under 18 divisions of the KDFL as well as five netball sides in A-Grade, B-Grade, C-Grade, Under 17 and Under 15 divisions of the KDNL.

The KDFL season is made up of 20 rounds in the home and away season, with each side playing 18 games, at the conclusion of the home and away season, the top five teams in each division face off in the finals series. The top three teams in this series are assured a second chance at making the Grand Final, however the fourth and fifth placed teams have no such luxury and are eliminated after any loss, this system works to reward the teams who have performed better over the home and away season.

During the season, each club will play nine home games and nine away games, in finals however, venues are designated to different clubs on a cycle. In 2007, for the first time, the grand final was staged in the larger Goulburn Valley Football League ground, Mooroopna in the hope that it would attract a larger crowd, in excess of 3,000 people turned up to watch the game.

History[edit]

The Kyabram District Football Association was formed in 1932, changing its name to Kyabram District Football League in 1960.[1]
