History

The competition began in 1922 as the Mercantile Football Association, with six teams and Mallochs-Brennans winning the inaugural premiership. 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

The WAAFL's membership has remained at 68 clubs for the 2015 season, with Forrestfield and Yanchep joining from the Hills Football Association and Metro Football League respectively, while Beechboro and Hills Rangers have withdrawn from the league. Southern River have also changed their name to Piara Waters, to coincide with their relocation.
