Soccer in Western Australia is governed by Football West. In 1896, the first governing body was formed. Football West runs the NPL WA (the states premier competition), State Leagues, Sunday League and Metropolitan League.
In 1994, a group of businessmen led by Joe Claudio formed the Perth Kangaroos IFC. The club competed in the 1994 Singapore Professional Soccer League. The Kangaroos finished the league season undefeated and easily won the Singapore league title. However, with dwindling support and resources, the experiment proved to be a financial disaster and Perth Kangaroos IFC soon folded.
Perth Glory FC are the only West Australian team to compete in the current national A-League and also participated in the now defunct National Soccer League since 1996. Perth Glory also have a side competing in the W-League which is run by Football West.
