This is the story of the group of footballers who took the Gold Coast SUNS' first steps.

'Throw out your birth certificates, boys. This game couldn't care less how old you are.' Guy McKenna Gold Coast SUNS Senior Coach

AFL is a fiercely competitive game built on a more than a century of tradition. On April 2, 2011, the Gold Coast SUNS, the AFL's newest club, set out to forge their very own. This is the story of the group of footballers who took the Gold Coast SUNS' first steps. It's the story of the community that banded together and cheered them on. It's a story about brilliant victories, horrible floggings, freakish talent, wasted chances, tireless enthusiasm and limitless determination. It's also the story of the game's expansionist frontier told from the very front row. Exciting, revealing, tragic, funny, and always tinted by the raw, unbridled emotion so unique to Australia's indigenous code, this is the up close and personal tale of a club's first steps in a brave new sporting world.
