This page is a complete chronological listing of AFL Women's premiers. The AFL Women's (AFLW) is the elite national competition in women's Australian rules football.

Each year, the premiership is awarded to the club that wins the AFL Women's Grand Final. The grand final was hosted by the minor premier in the first two seasons when no finals series existed, and was hosted by the preliminary final winner with the most premiership points (percentage would have come into consideration if points were the same) in 2019 when a conference system was in place.[1]

Adelaide has won the most premierships with two, with the Western Bulldogs the other team to have won a premiership. Brisbane and Carlton are the other teams to have reached a grand final.

Premiership droughts[edit]
