The Morphettville Park Football Club is an Australian rules football club first formed in 1958 and initial games were against sides who had forfeits or byes.[1] In 1959, they joined the Glenelg-South-West District Football Association A2 Division.

After winning the A2 Premiership in 1963, Morphettville Park were promoted to the A1 division where they remained until the competition, then known as the Southern Metropolitan Football League, folded at the end of the 1986 season. Morphettville Park transferred to the Southern Football League with the Marion and Plympton clubs in 1987 where they have remained since.

The Morphettville Park FC continues to field teams in Senior and Junior grades in the Southern Football League.
