The team was formed in 1980 as the Coburg Giants and were renamed in 1987 as the North Melbourne Giants. After a successful run in the league, with two championships and four grand final appearances, the club merged with a cross-town rival, the South East Melbourne Magic, for the 1998/99 season. The resulting Victoria Titans were as successful as their predecessors, but after succumbing to financial difficulties were rebranded the Victoria Giants in 2002 and ultimately folded as such in 2004.
