Whyalla Football League logoAbout
The Whyalla Football League is based in the town of Whyalla on the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula region of South Australia.

Whyalla is the third most populous city in the Australian state of South Australia after Adelaide and Mount Gambier. The town is known as the “Steel City” due to its integrated steelworks and shipbuilding heritage.

The Whyalla Football Association was formed in 1939 with founding clubs including Central Whyalla, North Whyalla and South Whyalla. In 1961 the Whyalla Football League (together with the Great Northern Football Association and the Port Pirie Football Association) formed the Spencer Gulf Football League. In 1967 the Whyalla-based clubs left the Spencer Gulf Football League and reformed the Whyalla Football League.

Champion past SANFL players from Whyalla include triple Magarey Medallist Barrie Robran and inaugural Adelaide Crows coach Graham Cornes, while 4 time SANFL Premiership coach Neil Kerley spent two seasons as Captain-Coach of the North Whyalla Magpies, leading them to the premiership in both seasons (1954 and 1955).
