Eastern Football League (Australia)

The Eastern Football League, or Eastern Districts Football League (EDFL) as it was formerly known, is an Australian rules football League, based in the eastern suburbs of metropolitan Melbourne, for both seniors and juniors.

The league has a growing following and regularly attracts large crowds upwards of 3000 due to a high standard of local physical football and beer drinking. [ [http://realfooty.com.au/news/news/heritage-all-year-round/2007/07/04/1183351291547.html Heritage all year round] from realfooty.com.au]

History

The Eastern Districts Football League was established in 15 February 1962, but its origins can be traced back to the Reporter District Football League established in 1903.

In the 1920s until World War 2, the league was known as the Ringwood District Football League. It was known as the Croydon District Football League and the Croydon Mail Football League between World War 2 and 1949. In 1950 the league became known as the Croydon-Ferntree Gully League.

In 1997, the Eastern District Football League and the Knox Junior Football Association united to create the Eastern Football League.
