Brief history[edit]

The Far West Football Association was formed in 1909, with founding clubs including Charra, Denial Bay, Goode, Koonibba, Murat and Penong. Prior to World War I the league changed its name firstly to County Of Way Football Association and then to Murat Bay Football League.

In 1962 The Murat Bay Football League changed name to the Far West Football League.

The Koonibba Roosters are regarded as the oldest Aboriginal community football club in Australia, having named their Team of the Century in 2009.[2]
