Yeundemu was one of seven clubs from indigenous Australian settlements to affiliate with AFL Central Australia in 2008. The Magpies wasted no time in establishing themselves as they claimed a premiership in their debut season, accounting for Pioneers in the grand final by 4 goals, 15.11 (101) to 11.11 (77). Subsequent seasons saw the league dividing into a Premier Division contested by the traditional, Alice Springs-based clubs, and two Country Divisions, in which Yeundemu along with the other indigenous clubs participated. The Magpies won a Country Division One premiership in 2015 when they overcame Ti Tree in the grand final by 17 points. The 2016 season brought a decline in fortunes as the side managed just a solitary win in 8 matches, a result which consigned it to fifth and last place. A year later Yuendumu again finished fifth but avoided the wooden spoon on this occasion as there were now six clubs in the competition.
