CF WAABC Great Southern | In this country football league, every game is derby day.

The Ravensthorpe and Districts Sports Association play on the isolated south coast of Western Australia, and may be the only league in the country where players are guaranteed a ticket to the grand final before the season begins.

"As far as I know we're the only two-team comp in the country," Hopetoun Sharks captain Damon Jones said.

The competition is made up of players from the farming towns of Ravensthorpe, Hopetoun, and Lake King, but with a dwindling population Lake King only fields a netball team.

But it is the footy that draws the loudest crowd, with the Sharks and the Ravensthorpe Tigers facing off each and every week during winter.

Mr Jones, who is also the association's president, acknowledged the competition was a unique one.

"It's good to play Ravy week after week," he said.

"It is a pretty special rivalry that's been going on for years and years."
