The MWFA was formed in 1947 and has a long and proud history of providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to play football.

The MWFA is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all players, coaches, referees, and administrators.

The MWFA was founded in 1947 by a group of football enthusiasts who wanted to create a more competitive amateur football league in the Manly Warringah area.

The league initially had just 10 clubs, but it has since grown to over 17 member clubs, including Manly United Football Club, which competes in the National Premier Leagues Northern NSW.
