Founded in 1902 as Union Football Club, East Perth joined the West Australian Football League in 1906 and has since won 17 premierships, the most recent of which came in 2002 (as the final in a hat-trick of flags). Known as the "Royals", the club played their home games at Perth Oval until 1999 when they shifted to Leederville Oval, which had been vacated by rivals West Perth. The club's city "zone" includes the northern and north-eastern suburbs of Perth such as Morley, Balga and Noranda, while its country zone includes Busselton, Boyup Brook, Bridgetown, Manjimup, Nannup and Augusta–Margaret River.

East Perth has twice been the "host club" for West Coast's reserves - in the 2000 and 2001 seasons (when the club hosted all Eagles from the eastern states, but WA-born players remained with their club of origin) and again from 2014 to 2018 (when all Eagles not playing AFL were allocated to East Perth).

Eagles players to have been recruited from East Perth include games record holder Dean Cox and inaugural captain Ross Glendinning (who played at East Perth before being recruited to North Melbourne).
