Club Song

Well There's A Big Big Sound
From the West of the town!
It's the sound of the mighty Giants!
You feel the ground is shaking,
The other teams are quaking in their boots before the Giants!
We take the longest strides
and the highest leaps.
We stronger than the rest!
We're the Greater Western Sydney Giants!
We're the biggest and the best, and we will!
Never surrender! We'll fight until the end!
We're greater than the rest!

Motto

Think Big. Live Big. Play Big.
