Since 1995, the Sydney Swans are the only club not to have missed the finals in consecutive seasons, and have made the finals more years than any other club in the same time, only missing the finals in 2000, 2002 and 2009.
The South Melbourne Football Club was founded in 1874 and won three premierships in 1909, 1918 and also in 1933 before experiencing 72 years without a premiership. In 2005, however, the Swans finally broke the league's longest premiership drought of any club, by winning the Grand Final against the West Coast Eagles in a tight, low-scoring game by a margin of just four points. The following season the two teams met in the Grand Final once again, but this time Sydney finished as runners-up by a single point. In 2012, the Swans won their fifth premiership by defeating Hawthorn by 10 points in front of 99,683 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
