In the 2014 off-season the GIANTS added premiership stars Heath Shaw, Shane Mumford and Josh Hunt, as well as former Bulldog Dylan Addison and Swan Jed Lamb to the club.

The GIANTS, with the number one and number two selections in the 2013 NAB AFL Draft, also selected Eastern Ranges forward Tom Boyd and Sandringham Dragons midfielder Josh Kelly.

This coincided with the club moving in to their new-state-of-the-art training facility at Sydney Olympic Park. The $11.5m Learning Life Centre includes an indoor training field, gymnasium and running track and overlooks the GIANTS' training oval, Tom Wills Oval.

The 2014 season started with a bang with the GIANTS beating cross-town rivals the Sydney Swans 15.9 (99) to 9.13 (67) in the first round in Sydney.

The GIANTS finished the year with six wins, the most in their history, and ticked off a number of important milestones along the way. 

2014 saw the GIANTS win interstate for the first time when they beat Brisbane, had back-to-back wins for the first time, won on the MCG for the first time against Melbourne in Round 21 by their highest-ever margin and capped off the year with a thrilling win over the Western Bulldogs, their first at Etihad Stadium.

Jeremy Cameron finished the year as the leading goal kicker with 29 goals while ruckman Shane Mumford won the 2014 Kevin Sheedy Medal for Club Champion in his first year after crossing from the Swans.
