It was announced on Thursday that the Roosters would not be a part of the league next year after failing to satisfy governance requirements set out by AFL Victoria.

Formerly aligned with North Melbourne, the Roosters were a VFL powerhouse less than a decade ago, winning three straight premierships between 2008 and 2010.

However the alignment ended following the 2015 season, with the Roosters subsequently falling on hard times, including finishing last in 2017.

"After significant upheaval at board level in recent years at North Ballarat, AFL Victoria believes the current position the club finds itself from both a governance and on-field perspective doesn't meet the key criteria needed for a continuation of the club's VFL licence," AFL Victoria chief Steven Reaper said.
