A Brief History
The Wembley Athletic Club was formed in 1926 to provide sporting services in the Western Suburbs of Perth.
The Wembley Amateur Football Club was created as a division of the WAC to compete in 1927 season of the West Australian Amateur Football League (WAAFL).
The WAFC is one of the oldest clubs in the amateur football competition and in that time has won 45 premierships across multiple divisions.
Members & Teams
The Wembley Amateur Football Club is one of the larger clubs in the competition. The club has over 200 playing members competing in one of 6 teams. The 6 teams are made up of 4 senior sides, colts (under 20) and an integrated team.
Whether you are a highly skilled competitor or a beginner we have a side that can cater for your level of experience and background.
Our newest team plays in the integrated competition. This competition assists players with special needs and disabilities to participate in community sports.
We are based at Wembley Oval (corner of Hay St & Selby St, Jolimont) where new club room facilities are in the process of being built with completion due late 2016.
We are alongside the Wembley Netball Complex where on a Saturday over 8,000 patrons and spectators are in attendance.
WAFC is an amateur club. That means we do not pay players and our committee and management are all volunteers.
The Wembley Family
The Wembley Amateur Football Club is a division of the Wembley Athletic Club that also supports the Wembley Cricket, Netball, Basketball and Baseball clubs. Combined participants are over 1000 people plus family and supporters.
The WAAFL Family
The WAFC participates in the WAAFL. The WAAFL has over 10,000 participants across 68 clubs across multiple divisions in the Perth metro area.
A new oval has been completed and will be complimented with new and modern clubrooms and social facilities by October 2016. This will give Wembley the opportunity to be the premier sporting club in the Western Suburbs.
