The Museum continues to develop a collection which documents the Australian Football League Women's competition, which was launched on 3 February 2017. In 2023, the season commences in September, with 14 rounds including ten home and away matches and four finals.

The women's AFL competition has been recognised for its culturally and socially inclusive culture, and its community connections, which see it played at suburban football grounds and attended by families and grassroots fans.
