The Werribee Football Club was established as a team in the Victorian Football Association (VFA) in 1965. In those early years the team was in the 2nd division, and although success was not immediate, over the past ten years the Tigers have come of age. The club has played a major role in the finals for the past twenty years, being minor premiers in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1998, winning the premiership in 1993, and being runners up in 1991, 1998, 2001 and 2005.
The Werribee Football Club shared an Australian Football League affiliation with the Western Bulldogs from 2000 to 2007. The alliance allowed the club to have access to players such as Brad Johnson, Daniel Cross, Scott West and Adam Cooney. The club now has a half-affiliation with the North Melbourne Football Club (the other half shared with North Ballarat). This affiliation has given Werribee access to players such as Hamish McIntosh, Jess Sinclair, Daniel Harris, Leigh Adams and Majak Daw.
