The Queensland Australian Football League (QAFL) is an Australian rules football competition for clubs from South East Queensland.


Previously known as the Queensland Football League (QFL), Queensland Australian National Football League (QANFL), Queensland Australian Football League (QAFL) and AFL Queensland State League (AFLQSL) the QAFL is the premier semi-professional competition in Queensland.

The QAFL is one tier below that of the North East Australian Football League, the premier QLD/NSW/ACT/NT competition below that of the Australian Football League.

Recent history

In November 2010 the AFL Queensland's Premier Division merged with AFL Canberra to form the North East Australian Football League, featuring all of its previous teams as well as the Gold Coast Football Club and Brisbane Lions reserve teams in the Northern Conference of the league.

As a result, the QAFL was disbanded in favour of localised competitions throughout Queensland. The structural changes to the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL) competition at the end of the 2013 season resulted in several clubs being relegated from the NEAFL, giving rise to a rebirth of the QAFL. As of 2014, there are 10 clubs who compete in the QAFL, most of which are based in South-East Queensland.

List of premiers

The complete list of premiers teams is detailed below: In 2010, the QAFL competition was disbanded and its teams became part of the NEAFL Northern conference. In 2014, the QAFL competition resumed with several former clubs of the NEAFL being relegated to the competition along with several newly promoted teams.
