As we come towards the end of the 2007 footy season for the majority of leagues around the world, for the first time WFN has decided to publish a list of the premiers in all the major Australian Football leagues around the world - starting from the 2006 season. In fact this is the third year in a row we've intended bringing you a full season wrap of premiers, but the time and effort was yet to match the good intentions. Hopefully this will stand as a good record for recalling the top teams at a glance. Later in the year we intend bringing you the 2007 wrap-up.
Of course in a place like Australia there are dozens of leagues of good standard, so here we've limited ourselves to the national competition and the major leagues in each state and territory. In other countries there are sometimes smaller city-based leagues, such as metro competitions in many US cities. Again, we've limited ourselves to the major interstate championships. Results are for men's senior competition grand finals unless otherwise stated. Note that the majority of leagues around the world play through the middle of the calendar year (centred on winter in the southern hemisphere, summer in the northern hemisphere), but in a few cases such as Australia's Northern Territory and parts of New Zealand, matches are played spanning two calendar years (the end of one and the start of the next). In these cases the season completed earlier in the year is listed here. Thanks to the officials and volunteers who helped us compile this list. Let us know if there are any major league results we've missed.
