Australian Football League (AFL) club based in Sydney, New South Wales.

The club originally founded in 1874, was known as the South Melbourne Football Club until it relocated to Sydney in 1982 to become the Sydney Swans. Sydney is the only AFL club based in New South Wales, and was also the first non-Victorian club in the competition.

The Swans play most home games at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with 'blockbuster' games played at Telstra Stadium (the former Olympic Stadium at Homebush Bay).

The club has won premierships in 1909, 1918 and 1933 (as South Melbourne), and in 2005 (as the Sydney Swans).

Sydney played in the 2006 Grand Final, but was defeated by the West Coast Eagles for the premiership title, losing by one point - the closest Grand Final result since 1966 [1]. The previous year, the Swans narrowly defeated the Eagles in the 2005 Grand Final by 4 points in an epic low scoring encounter. This had been their first Grand Final win in 72 years.
