Formed in 1956, the Esperance District Football Association is based in the city of Esperence in WA.
Esperance is a town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of WA, on the Southern Ocean coastline, located 720 km east-southeast of Perth. Its major industries are tourism, agriculture, and fishing. French explorers are credited with making the first landfall near the present day town, naming it and other local landmarks whilst sheltering from a storm in this area in 1792. The town itself was named after a French ship, the Espérance. Espérance, is French for “hope”.
