Sunday June 1st will see the return of the Federal Football League as Cheltenham host Bentleigh in the 2014 Federal Football League Reunion at Jack Barker Oval, Cheltenham.
This is a celebration of the Federal Football League and a chance for all past players, officials and supporters to reminisce about their time in what was Melbourne’s strongest metropolitan football league.
Please see the poster below for full details. We look forward to seeing a big crowd on Sunday!

LEGEND has it the Federal Football League was so strong in the mid-1960s that Channel Seven wanted to telecast Federal games on Sunday to counter the growing TV audience Channel 0 was gathering in VFA broadcasts.
But only a decade and a half later the Federal League folded and now is just a faded memory.
On Sunday June 1, that memory will be revived when Cheltenham meets Bentleigh at Cheltenham.
