The Western Australian Amateur Football League (WAAFL) is an Australian rules football competition based in Perth, Western Australia. It is the largest Australian rules football competition in Western Australia.[1]

History[edit]

The competition began in 1922 with five teams as the Mercantile Football Association (MFA). The MFA changed its name in 1924 to the Perth Districts Football Association and then, in 1929, to the Western Australian Amateur Football Association. It changed to its current name in 1971.[2]

Member clubs[edit]

The WAAFL's membership grew by one to 69 clubs for the 2016 season, with ECU Jets joining the league. Wesley Curtin changed its name to Curtin University Wesley in the pre-season, in order to comply with requirements for clubs playing on the Curtin University campus.
