The highest state based league is the Victorian Premier League. The league below that is the Victorian State League Division 1. Below that, State Leagues 2 and 3 are split into North/West and South/East divisions. Below that, three divisions of the Provisional Leagues follow, also split into North/West and South/East divisions. The participating clubs are almost entirely located within metropolitan Melbourne, however there are separate regional leagues organised by associations subsidiary to the FFV, such as the Geelong Regional Football Association, Ballarat & District Soccer Association and the Gippsland Soccer League.
Coverage of the VPL is provided by the local non-profit community television station, Channel 31 Melbourne, on Extra Time.

Famous quotes containing the word leagues:
“Good news about someone never gets past the door, but bad news will travel a thousand leagues away.”
“Only be admonished by what you already see, not to strike leagues of friendship with cheap persons, where no friendship can be. Our impatience betrays us into rash and foolish alliances which no God attends.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“By a knight of ghosts and shadows
I summond am to a tourney
Ten leagues beyond the wide worlds end:
Methinks it is no journey.”
