From its inauguration in 1909 to its demise in 1981, the Federal Football League (previously know as the Federal Football Association) was one of the premier football competitions in the south east of Melbourne.
The FFL is one of the three precursor leagues that helped form the current Southern Football Netball League, with many Federal clubs still competing in the SFNL today.
