The Greater Western Sydney club was formed in 2009, as part of the league's long-held plan to establish a team in the Western Sydney area which had previously seen ideas such as the relocation of North Melbourne and an Irish-themed "Sydney Celtics" side floated but then discarded. The Giants spent 2010 playing in the TAC Cup Victorian under-18 competition and 2011 in the newly-formed North East Australian Football League (a combination of the Queensland state league and AFL Canberra) before joining the AFL in 2012. Like Gold Coast, the club received significant recruiting concessions as part of its start-up which it used primarily to stockpile the nation's best young talent. As a result, the Giants fielded inexperienced lineups and won the wooden spoon in each of its first two seasons.
