The Gold Coast SUNS made their official bid for an AFLW license in June 2017, a process completed alongside AFLQ to further the development and growth of women’s football in Queensland.
On September 27, 2017 the SUNS successfully obtained an AFLW license for the 2020 Season. It was a momentous occasion for the club.
