History

The Mallee Football League was formed in 1997 from the merger of the Northern Mallee Football League and Southern Mallee Football League. The Northern Mallee Football League had been reduced to four clubs after Ouyen Rovers and Tempy-Gorya-Patchewollock merged to form Ouyen United. The Mallee Football League was disbanded at the end of the 2015 season due to insufficient member clubs.
