North Gippsland Football League

The North Gippsland Football League is an Australian rules football league in the Central Gippsland area of Victoria, Australia, formed in 1955. This league was the result of a merger of the Cowwarr Football League and the Sale District Football League. The original name was Cowwarr Sale Football League , the league changed to its present name in 1965. The region where the league is located is home to a number of other Australian football leagues, and a number of clubs have shifted between the North Gippsland FL and others such as the Mid Gippsland Football League, Riviera Football League and Latrobe Valley Football League.

In 2008, the league received its newest club, the Woodside and District Wildcats, who broke away from the DWWWW club in the Alberton Football League. Games in the North Gippsland Football League are umpired by members of the Sale Umpires Association.

In 2012, the league will drop back to 10 clubs, with Stratford moving to the East Gippsland Football League.[1]
