The league was formed in 1970 under the name Portland Port Fairy Football League, as the result of a merger of the Portland and District Football League and the Port Fairy Football League. The Glenelg FL had decided to disband and the continuing clubs needed a competition to play in.

Of the 14 founding clubs, eight came from the Portland and District Football League, three from the Port Fairy Football League and three from the Glenelg Football League.

The league was renamed the South West District Football League in 1983.

Clubs[edit]

Current[edit]

7 of the current 9 teams were present in the league on formation in 1970 (Branxholme and Wallacedale as separate teams). Coleraine joined from the Western Border Football League in 1995 and Heywood commenced in 2012.
