The Leven Football Association (LFA) was an Australian rules football competition in Tasmania, Australia. Four clubs from small communities in northern Tasmania compete for the premiership every year. The games were played on Saturday and both matches were at the same ground in the form of a double header.

History[edit]

Founded 1924 to provide a competition for teams in the Ulverstone Municipality.

This Association succeeded various earlier Associations, it has been a valuable feeder ground for NWFU and NTFL clubs in particular Ulverstone.

Forth won the first premiership of the competition in 1924. Several clubs started in this association before moving into a stronger competition after establishing themselves, Turners Beach and West Ulverstone are now both in the NWFA however Railton and Mole Creek both moved the other way.

The association went into recess when Upper Castra couldn't field a side for the 2016 season. The association was supposed to be absorbed by the NWFL and be its Central Division.
