The Northern Football League (formerly known as the Diamond Valley Football League) is an Australian rules football competition based in the Diamond Valley region of suburban Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The league changed its name on 1 May 2007. The league was founded in 1922 originally having seven clubs, four of whom are still participating. In 1941 the league went into recess for five years as a result of World War II, the competition recommencing in 1946. After the war the league continued to grow. In 1981 it was split into two divisions.

The entire DVFL board resigned over the summer of 2006–2007 and was replaced by officials from AFL Victoria until suitable replacements were found prior to the commencement of the 2008 season.

In 2008 the NFL added an open-age Netball competition and announced an intention that a third division would be added for the 2009 season with the old 14-team 2nd division to be split into eight and six-team divisions. Three junior clubs, Yarrambat, St Marys, Keon Park Stars, announced plans to field Under-19s teams for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons [1] Reversing the prior decision the league decided that division 2 would be split half way through the 2009 season based on ladder position after the 13th round and a permanent division 3 for 2010 would dependent on at least one more club joining the league. [2] With St Marys to field a senior team in 2010 the NFL have announced a stand alone division 3 to commence from 2010.[3] [4]
