The Riverland Football League is an Australian rules football league located in South Australia's Riverland region. The league has two divisions - the first division is for the main towns of the Riverland and the second division, called the Riverland Independent Football League, is for the minor towns. The Barmera-Monash Roos were the Premiers in 2012, ending a 23-year drought by defeating Waikerie in the 2012 Grand Final. The Loxton North Panthers won the flag in 2013, beating Barmera-Monash in the Grand Final held on September 14, 2013.

History[edit]

The origins of this league was in 1909 when Lyrup, Renmark Town and Fairview Rovers founded the Murray Football Association.

The competition reformed in 1919 as the Upper Murray Football Association and later in 1952 became the Upper Murray Football League, the same name as the Upper Murray Football League based around Corryong, Victoria.

The league changed its name in 1972 to the Riverland Football League, with the league's second division changing from the Upper Murray B Grade Football League to the Riverland Independent Football League.

Season 1956[edit]

Heavy rains further up river in NSW and Victoria caused the Murray River to flood and it caused the abandonment of the 1956 football season.
