Founded in 1877, Sale began playing official competitive football in 1889 when they joined the Gippsland Football Association, as a junior side.[1][3] In 1900, the club entered the senior competition and were premiers for the first time the following year.[1]

One of the greatest players produced by the club, Brownlow Medal winner Norman Ware, came to Footscray from Sale in the 1930s.[4]

Sale were a foundation member of the Latrobe Valley Football League in 1954.[5][6] They were the dominant team in the early years of the competition, with four premierships in the first six seasons.[1][7] More recently, Sale defeated Maffra to win the 2012 grand final.[8]
