The W-League is the top division of women's association football in Australia. Established in 2008, the league is composed of eight teams of which seven are affiliated with clubs in the A-League. The eighth team based in Canberra.[1] As the league is sponsored by the Westfield Group, it is now known as the Westfield W-League.

W-League (Australia) History



W-League (Australia) Establishment

After the Australia women's national football team qualified for the quarterfinals of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China for the first time, head coach Tom Sermanni felt the establishment of a professional league was vital for continuing the development of players.[4] The Football Federation Australia established the league the following year. The W-League was initially composed of eight teams: Adelaide United, Brisbane Roar, Central Coast Mariners, Canberra United, Melbourne Victory, Perth Glory, and Sydney FC. Seven of the eight teams were affiliated with the inaugural Australian A-League clubs, and shared their names and colours to promote their brands. The eighth club was the Canberra-based Canberra United.[5]

The Central Coast Mariners were forced to withdraw from the 2010–11 season due to a lack of funding and have yet to return. When the Western Sydney Wanderers joined the A-League for the 2012–13 season, they also entered a team into the W-League, returning the competition to eight teams.

W-League (Australia) Inaugural season, 2008

The W-League's inaugural season commenced on 25 October 2008, with Perth Glory hosting Sydney FC at Members Equity Stadium.[6] After ten rounds, Queensland Roar were the top-placed team, becoming the first W-League premiers, and advancing to the semi-finals along with the second-, third- and fourth-placed teams. They faced Canberra United in the W-League Grand Final 2009, defeating them 2–0 to take the champions trophy.

One game per week (the 3:00 pm Saturday game) was broadcast live nationwide on ABC1.[7] The teams in the W-League have a salary cap of A$150,000 for the entire squad. By comparison, the salary cap for clubs in the corresponding men's competition, the A-League, is A$2.35 million.[citation needed]
