The Devonport Football Club was established as the Formby Football Club in 1881 and by 1890 it was formally constituted as the Devonport Football Club. For over 120 years the Devonport Football Club (DFC) has been providing a healthy and safe sporting environment for the youth of the region.

Many former Devonport players have gone on to become community leaders and outstanding citizens and in recent years the Devonport Football Club has produced AFL players of the calibre of Matthew Richardson, Jade and Brady Rawlings and Grant Birchall.

The Club fields Senior and Colts (Under 21) teams in the AFL Tasmania State League representing the eastern zone of the North West Coast that stretches from Port Sorell to Ulverstone municipalities. Along with these teams the club also fields Under 17 and Under 14 teams in the North West Junior Football League.

The Devonport Magpies previously competed in the Northern Tasmanian Football League but from 2009 it joined the newly reformed Tasmanian State League.
