The Football Budget is the match-day programme of the West Australian Football League (WAFL). The magazine is distributed free with all purchased match-day tickets but is also available for sale for $3.[1]


The Budget covers news relating to Western Australian football generally, but is focused on the WAFL with names and numbers of participating players listed for all WAFL and Western Australian Australian Football League matches.


The Football Budget was first produced as McMahons WA Footballer in 1921, soon becoming known just as the WA Footballer. The magazine was rebranded in 1936 as the Football Budget after the South Australian equivalent of the same name.[2]
