AFL Canberra is the governing body for Australian rules football in the Australian Capital Territory and the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales.

Contents

In November 2010 the five AFL Canberra Premier Division clubs merged with the Premier Division clubs of the Queensland Australian Football League to form the North East Australian Football League. [1] From 2011 onwards, the AFL Canberra Premier Division together with the reserve sides from the Sydney Swans and Greater Western Sydney Giants will form the NEAFL Eastern Conference.

Today AFL Canberra acts as an umbrella to several competitions beneath it. These competitions are Seniors First Grade, Seniors Second Grade and a Rising Stars League. There is also a women's league.

History

AFL Canberra was once a very popular local league, however since the introduction of the Swans and matches featuring AFL clubs being played at Manuka Oval, the league's home ground, and the growth of local rugby union, rugby league and association football competitions, AFL Canberra has experienced the loss of clubs and spectator support.

Names

The AFL Canberra has been through a number of forms.

Australian rules football in New South Wales

Australian rules football has been played in New South Wales since the 1870s with strongholds in the Riverina, Broken Hill/Barrier region, the far south coast and a small but strong presence in the Newcastle and Hunter region. In other parts of New South Wales, it was, until more recent years, generally overshadowed in popularity as a winter sport by the rugby football codes. Until the 1980s, the sport had a small presence in Sydney. Its popularity is increasing northward, across what is known as the Barassi Line.

North East Australian Football League Second division Australian rules football league

The North East Australian Football League (NEAFL) was an Australian rules football league in New South Wales, Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory. The league was formed in November 2010, and its inaugural competition was in 2011. It was a second division league, sitting below the national Australian Football League (AFL) and featured the reserves teams of the region's four AFL clubs playing alongside six non-AFL affiliated NEAFL senior teams. Nine NEAFL seasons were contested between 2011 and 2019, before the 2020 season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the league was amalgamated into the Victorian Football League from 2021.

The 2011 NEAFL season was the inaugural season of the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL). The season began on Saturday, 2 April and concluded on Saturday, 24 September with the NEAFL Grand Final. NT Thunder were the Northern Division Champions after defeating Morningside in the Northern Conference Grand Final, whilst Ainslie defeated the Sydney Swans reserves in the Eastern Conference Grand Final to become the Eastern Conference Champions. The Cross Conference Grand Final resulted in NT Thunder defeating Ainslie, ultimately resulting in becoming the 2011 NEAFL Premiers.

The 2021 Victorian Football League season is the 139th season of the Victorian Football Association/Victorian Football League Australian rules football competition. The season commenced on 16 April and is scheduled to conclude on 18 September.
