This year saw a schism in Bendigo Football. South Bendigo, California Gully and Long Gully formed a separate competition. The BNDFA competition was more popular than the BDFA competition, which struggled with attracting crowds or interest.

When the BNDFA competition finished in mid August, a number of players moved over and represented BDFA teams.
