About the League

The Renegade Pub Football League is a not-for-profit incorporated association that runs an Australian Rules Football league in Melbourne's Inner North.

We welcome players of any gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, religion or skill level, however, all players must be 18 years or older.

We play nine rounds between April and September each season at Victoria Park in Abbotsford. Game day is a family friendly event which offers music, bars selling beer and cider and a meat/vegan BBQ, also dogs are always welcome.

We are all about grassroots footy and community spirit. We pride our league on providing a safe and inclusive environment for our community to enjoy getting together for a day of footy. All profits from our BBQs are donated each round to a local charity through our Community Engagement Program.

Good Sports

Sporting organisations such as the RPFL play a significant role in the community and have a responsibility to their members.

We have chosen to join over 7000 clubs across Australia taking part in the Good Sports program.

Through Good Sports we are committed to managing alcohol responsibly and ensuring smoke free areas, which we believe will help us to provide a healthy, safe and family friendly environment.
