The Yeronga Football Club is an Australian rules football club which play in the AFLQ State Association. They are nicknamed the Devils. Previously, the club competed in the Queensland Australian National Football League (QANFL).[1]

Formed in 1928, the club comes from the Brisbane suburb of Yeronga.

The club had their best period in the 1930s when they twice made grand finals, losing to Windsor on both occasions.

After World War II, Yeronga merged with the South Brisbane Football Club, but kept their name and club colours.
