The history of the Belconnen Magpies Football Club is one that has travelled along many different paths, at times under the one banner, and at other times simultaneously under separate banners. The various clubs in the past, that have been the Belconnen Magpies Football Club have all added their own dimension to our now great football club, and contributed to the character and spirit now experienced by our club’s current players, coaches, training staff, and supporters.

The Belconnen Football Club and The West Canberra Football Club amalgamated in the late 80’s early 90’s to create the now stronger than ever, Belconnen Magpies Football Club. Both clubs possessed their own unique culture, history and also their own origins.

This page hopes to provide a small glimpse of the two club’s past and how they came to be one. While the information on this page focuses mainly on the history of the clubs playing strip, it provides small insights into major events for both clubs along the way that brought the two clubs together to form The Belconnen Magpies Football Club.
