The Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League (MPNFL) is an Australian rules football competition, governed by the Victorian Country Football League. The MPNFL contains teams near the south eastern region of Victoria, Australia. It contains three different divisions with 32 teams in all, 10 teams in the Casey-Cardinia, 12 in the Nepean Divisions and 10 in the Peninsula Division.

History[edit]

The league was formed in 1987 upon the merger of the Mornington Peninsula FL and the Nepean FL. Football on the Peninsula region goes back to 1908, and in 2008 celebrated its centenary.

The first league, the Peninsula FA, was formed in 1908. This competition played until 1933, and then it merged with the Peninsula District FA (formed in 1920) to form the Mornington Peninsula FL for the 1934 season. Clubs from the small Peninsula Junior FL also joined.

In late 1958 the league's committee allowed Chelsea to transfer in from the Federal FL, couple with the fact the league was in the growth corridor of suburbian Melbourne the league decided on a new approach to the competition. It would form a major and minor league competitions. A new Nepean League would be for clubs that only had one open age side. The Mornington Peninsula league would have both seniors and reserves competitions.

The 1958 league ran A, B, & C grade competitions with 28 teams from 18 clubs. Some clubs were directed into the Nepean FL in 1959, and after a few years of promotion and relegation the two leagues merged in 1987.

The competition absorbed the South West Gippsland FL in 1995.
