About the league

Sport is not just about winning. Sport brings people together. It helps build stronger, healthier, happier, and safer communities, and this is why the OMFNL exists.

Based in the north-eastern region of Victoria and southern Riverina region of New South Wales, the OMFNL is country Victoria’s premier Australian rules football and netball competition. The League’s name is derived from the Ovens River, in north-eastern Victoria, and the Murray River, which runs along the border of Victoria and New South Wales.

The League features three grades in its Australian rules football competition: Seniors, Reserves and Under 18s. In the netball competition, there are four grades: A Grade, B Grade, C Grade and Under 17s.

Our communities live and breathe Ovens and Murray football and netball, and the League exists to service these communities through sport. For over 128 years, the League and its member Clubs have been an integral part of North East Victoria’s sporting landscape.
