The Werribee Football Club was established as a team in the VFA in 1965. In those early years the team was in 2nd division, and although success was not immediate over the past ten years the Tigers have come of age. The club has played a major role in the finals for the past eight years, being club minor premiers in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1998 and winning the premiership in 1993, and being runners up in 1991, 1998, 2001 and 2005.

AFL Affiliation

The Werribee Football Club shared an Australian Football League affiliation with the Western Bulldogs from 2000 to 2007. The alliance allowed the club to have access to players such as Brad Johnson, Daniel Cross, Scott West and Adam Cooney. The Club is now affliated with the North Melbourne Football Club.
