Formed in 1908, the Tanunda Football Club’s formation coincided with that of the Barossa and Light Football Association, of which Tanunda became a foundation member.
For many years Tanunda struggled to make an impact in the competition and it was not until 1926 that it even managed to reach a grand final. Tanunda’s breakthrough premiership finally arrived in 1934 thanks to a grand final defeat of Kapunda.
Overall, the Magpies time in the Barossa and Light Football Association was successful, winning 10 senior grade flags.
Since commencing in the Barossa Light and Gawler Football Association Tanunda has vied with Nuriootpa as the competition’s most successful club, including winning four premierships in a row.
