The global expansion of the GIANTS continues in 2019 with the Orange County GIANTS the latest club to don the orange.
Formerly known as the Orange County Bombers, the Southern Californian club will officially relaunch on Saturday, March 9, at Balboa Bay Club, Newport Beach with star forward Jon Patton in attendance.
OC GIANTS President Kosta Condous said 2019 is shaping as a big year for the club in the USAFL.
"Everyone at the club is ecstatic to become part of the GIANTS family,” said Condous.
“We have a proud history dating back to 1998 when the Orange County Bombers became one of the first Aussie Rules clubs formed in the US.
“This new partnership and our re-branding as the GIANTS is a huge opportunity to further grow our great game in Southern California and improve the long term prospects of our club.”
The OC GIANTS are the latest team in a strong network of clubs around the globe including:
South London Giants (England)
Skane Giants (Sweden)
Zaprude Giants (Croatia)
North Leinster Giants (Ireland)
Greater Glasgow Giants (Scotland)
Wurttemburg Giants (Germany)

Notre-Dame-De-Grace Giants (Canada Women’s)
Sydney Giants AFC – Nova Scotia (Canada)
Indianapolis Giants (USA)

The OC GIANTS are looking to strengthen their 2019 playing list via a player exchange program and are currently accepting applications from experienced and talented Australian players aged 21 years and over.
Many GIANTS players based in Sydney have enquired about the involvement of Ryan, Seth, Marissa and Summer, who became favourites of Australian fans in their hit TV show named after the beautiful Southern California region over a decade ago.
All parties are still in negotiations.
