The Western Australian Football Website - aka footballwa.net - made its' first appearance in September 1997. Founded by Jacob Aufdemkampe, the website has continually evolved over the years to become established as the prime source of news, information and historical data on grassroots football in WA.

Picking up on the lack of publicity afforded to the local game, Aufdemkampe set-up the website with the expressed aim of raising the profile of football in WA. Through word of mouth alone the local community embraced the website to the extent it is now the most comprehensive single source of on-line information on the game available.

In early 2000 the website 'staff' was doubled with the addition of Brett Klucznik whose priority has been the compilation of the weekly news updates and the provision of photographs. Three years later Peter Simcox came on board as the website broadened it's coverage of the semi-professional game.

Over the years we have been able to establish a network of contributors who give their time each week to provide match details and club news for the website. It is only through these contributions that footballwa.net is able to provide you - the football community - with the latest information on the game you love.

footballwa.net is totally volunteer-driven - everyone who contributes is employed full-time in occupations outside football. As such, we invite all players, officials, fans and administrators to have your say on the game in WA. Please contact us to to find out how you can help this website, and the game, progress and grow.

Note on statistics 'Page Views' are widely considered the most accurate assessment of the number of people who visit a website. Some websites gauge their popularity by the number of 'Hits' received, a method which dramatically inflates the number of actual visitors. footballwa.net collects only the 'Page Views' on our homepage.
