Sydney Swans

Sydney SwansOriginally founded as South Melbourne in 1874, the club relocated in 1982 to become the Sydney Swans – the first non-Victorian team to take part in the VFL. The team endured a 72-year premiership drought that ended in 2005, and won the flag again in 2012.

Sydney enjoyed a terrific season in 2016. Amidst speculation they were due for a slide, the Swans went on a rampage instead, winning 17 games to finish atop the ladder at the end of the season. But despite overcoming a qualifying final loss to the Giants with wins over the Crows and Cats, Sydney were ultimately handed their second grand final loss in three years by the Bulldogs.
