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.

HistoryEdit

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.

NamesEdit

The AFL Canberra has been through a number of forms.

  • 1924–1926 Federal Territory Australian Rules Football League (FTARFL);
  • 1927–1974 as the Canberra Australian National Football League (CANFL);
  • 1975–1999 Australian Capital Territory Australian Football League (ACTAFL);
  • 2000–2010 AFL Canberra
  • 2011–future North East Australian League - Eastern Conference
