The clubs of the previously named Moorabbin Saints Junior Football League have voted in favour of changing the name of the league to South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL).
The new name was proposed by the Board and Administration of the League and it is being positioned as "Building a New Tradition" for this large football association. The league was formed in 1988 as an amalgamation of the Chelsea and St Kilda Junior Football Leagues and 21 years later the league has decided to change its name to better reflect its geographical spread.
The League found that the previous name created confusion with potential partners as the name appeared to reflect similarities to a football club rather than a league. The League was keen to propose a fresh brand that mirrored the enthusiasm of the Board and Administration of the League
