The Yarra Junior Football League is pleased to announce Swinburne University as its Naming rights Partner for the next three years.
The partnership, established in 2023, extends to see Swinburne become the league Major until 2026.
The three-year deal, which will see the league be known as the “Swinburne University Yarra Junior Football League” is the most significant partnership in the leagues history.
The university, already assisting the league with participation research, personal development and mental health support, will continue to be the event capital of the YJFL hosting major league events including season launch and League Best and Fairest events.
