The King Island Football Association (KIFA) is an Australian rules football competition held in Tasmania, Australia. Three clubs from small communities on King Island compete for the premiership every year.

History[edit]

The formation of the competition was in 1908.[1]

One of Australia's most isolated, and almost certainly its smallest football league, the three teams play ten games each in a fifteen round competition plus finals.[2]

The King Island Football Association played under the Victorian Football Association's rival throw-pass rules from 1946 until 1948, meaning that throwing the football in general play was legal during those years.[3]
