The Central Highlands Football League has withdrawn from the AFL Victoria Community Championships.
A recent vote of league presidents sealed the fate of the interleague program, which was reignited back in 2012.
CHFL president Eddy Comelli said the vote had been strongly in favour of pulling out of the annual statewide competition and personally felt comfortable with the decision.
"Our position is that we would revisit interleague provided the AFL took the lead on it statewide and come up with a different format," Comelli told The Courier on Monday.
"The current format is not working anywhere in the state, we don't think.
"...under the current format, we weren't interested in continuing."
Comelli said he had thought for a while that the AFL Victoria Community Championships had been "broken" statewide.
"I've got no qualms about not going on with it," he said.
The CHFL returned to senior representative football in 2012 when Shane Skontra coached the team to victory over Ellinbank and District Football League.
After that, Skontra guided the side to a win over Ovens and King in 2013 before Greg Middleton took charge and landed triumphs over Loddon Valley (2014) and Horsham District (2015).
Clive Raak then took charge and suffered narrow defeats against Geelong and District (2016), Southern (2017) and Riddell District (2018).
This year, Rohan Brown and Heath Pyke served as joint coaches as the CHFL was beaten by North Central.
The decision to abandon the program means there won't be any netball interleague clashes played in the AFL Victoria Community Championships.
