On March 13, 2008 the idea for the AFLs newest club was born after the league won the support of the 16 club Presidents to establish an 18th side to be based at Blacktown International Sportspark in Western Sydney.

AIS/AFL Academy coach Alan McConnell became the clubs High Performance Manager and first employee on July 1, 2009.

In August the League announced Team GWS would be the campaign for the AFLs proposed 18th team and GWS would be represented in the TAC Cup Under-18 competition in the 2010 season.

In November 2009, AFL legend and former Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy was named the inaugural Head Coach of Team GWS on a three-year contract.

Club Song
Well there's a big big sound
From the West of the town
Its the sound of the mighty GIANTS

You feel the ground A-SHAKING
The other teams are quaking
In their boots before the GIANTS

We take the longest strides
And the highest leap
Were stronger than the rest

Were the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS
Were the biggest and the best

And we will never surrender
Well fight until the end
Were greater than the rest
