New South Wales Australian National Football League

Season 1957

 

Season notes

Full playing time for first grade matches was for quarters of 25 minute, plus added time.

However, a local arrangement of the NSW ANFL meant quarters were reduced to 22 minutes during the months of June and July, to ensure games concluded before darkness set in.
