Established in 1976 as a division of the Willetton Sports Club (WSC), the original team jumper was navy blue with a white WSC logo.

WFC president Damian Chandler said the club initially competed in the South Suburban Murray Football League then rejoined the Sunday Football League from 1984 to 1997.

The club had a year�s recess before reforming in 1999 in the WA Amateur Football League.

Mr Chandler said a new jumper was designed and the Club�s name changed to the Willetton Amateur Football Club.

�The Club progressed up the grades quite quickly and re-established itself as a strong, successful club,� Mr Chandler said.

�At the end of 2014, a planning meeting was held with the committee, sponsors, past and current players and administrators, and it was decided that we should better recognise and respect the history of the Club by reverting back to our original name and jumper, with a slight change to the monogram – WFC.�

Since the closure of the Willetton Sports Club in 2011, the football club had been without a functioning clubroom.

Thanks to state and local government funding, the building has been refurbished and reopened as the Willetton Community and Sports Centre.
