The 2018 divisional structures seek to re-establish balance and consolidate the respective divisions, whilst providing clubs with their optimum environment for sustainability.

Measures have been put in place to address what was a six-team Division 2 competition in 2017, with Division 2 set to return to an eight-team competition in 2018.

2018 will also see Glen Orden FC re-emerge as a senior entity, whilst Point Cook FC will figure for the first time from a senior perspective.

In determining the divisional make-up, consideration was given to the feedback and requests from all clubs as well as analysis on a number of fronts that included:

  • 2017 ladder position;
  • Existence of an Under 19’s program;
  • Extent of junior program;
  • Player age profile;
  • Club’s financial position and details pertaining to the club’s Allowable Player Payments Cap.

The league will re-examine the consolidated competition structures in 2018 with the view to returning to a standardised promotion and relegation ahead of the 2019 season.
