Early 2012 the Skåne Griffins, which are an amalgamation of the Australian Football Clubs in Skåne (Southern Sweden) were given the fantastic opportunity to become Giants, through an International Affiliation with the GWS Giants.

Having made contact with Lachlan Buszard the GWS Giants Academy Manager through the AFL Europe General Manager Ben McCormack, a deal was struck for playing jumpers and some footballs to get the club started. The future direction for the Skåne Giants is to develop a club from local ‘Gymnasiums’ (High Schools) in the Skåne Region that would compete in the AFL Sweden South League.

The Skåne Giants are represented by the best players from the various teams in Skåne as well as a couple of players from Sweden’s newest team Karlskrona which is just outside of the Skåne region.
