History

The SAAFL was formed on March 8, 1911 and the first match was played on May 6 the same year. Since then the league has seen many clubs come and go, and many thousands of matches played. We have provided links below to summaries of all our past seasons, plus other significant historical information. We hope you enjoy reading about our contribution to the history and promotion of Australian Rules Football.
