The Kapunda Football Club has been serving the community in sport and recreation since 1866 and is possibly the oldest football club in Australia to enjoy an uninterrupted identity. It values health, fitness and wellbeing to the wider community. We have pride in our past achievements and confidence in our future. 2016 brings our past and future together, marking the KFC’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary – 150 years!
Since our inauguration in 1866, our Club has triumphed in the A-Grade, winning 15 Premierships, including 2 x runs of three in a row; through 1921-1923; and 1927-1929. In 2004 we celebrated our first premiership in 30 years, then went back-to-back in 2005.
Our reserves team has also enjoyed premiership success 11 times since the reserves competition began in 1922. The year 2006 marks our most recent premiership triumph in this grade.
In 1970 junior football was separated into junior and senior colts teams. Our senior colts have won a total of 5 premierships, with 1996 being our most recent flag; and our junior colts have achieved 3 premierships, sharing 1996 as the most recent premiership success. Prior to 1970 there was a combined clots competition, where the KFC won 3 premierships.
A true pioneer of Australian Rules Football, our Club played a role in the introduction of goal umpires, goal flags, and the push-in-the-back rule.
With a new-look committee, structure and new A-Grade coach, 2015 promise to hold the KFC in good stead, in readiness to celebrate our 150th and ensure our Club is a part of our community for the longest haul. We plan to celebrate this landmark achievement through 2016, and we call on our community to come support and be part of something special. Go the Bomber!
