The New York team became known as the Magpies, when American expatriate and then club historian of the Collingwood Football Club, Richard Stremski, furnished the fledgling club with footballs and guernseys and have been an affiliate of Collingwood ever since. The club also has a connection with the Port Adelaide Magpies in the SANFL where some New York players have enjoyed scholarships to play with the club.[2]

About half of the players of the New York Magpies team are Australian.[3]

The New York Magpies won the Men's Division 1 USAFL National Championships Grand Final in 2010 and 2014.
