1904-1915: Pre-war years
Coming into 1907, the league was the South Australian Football Association but in 1907, the league had a name change which turned it into the South Australian Football League. In the first season of the new name, Norwood took the championship but they would end up losing to the VFA champions Essendon in Adelaide. Norwood, Port Adelaide and North Adelaide dominated the league until the first world war with all of the titles being won by those teams.
1919-1940: The inter-war years
Sturt won the first ever SAFL after the first world war. Glenelg entered the league in 1921 but didn't win a game in their first four seasons. The league would have another change in 1927 with the league now called the South Australian National Football League. West Adelaide would win the first league under the new name. In the 1934 season, Glenelg took home their first premiership after they defeated Port Adelaide in the grand final to win their first premiership. The Second World War would stop the SANFL which would last five years before restarting in 1946.
