Founded in 1969, the Manly-Warringah Australian Football Club (MWAFC) started in the SFL Under-20 competition. The following year the club joined the newly formed Sydney District Association.
The Wolves have been a dominant performer in the Sydney AFL First Division competition. The Wolves were promoted to Premier Division in 2013 after an undefeated 2012 season in Division 1 and a percentage of over 500. They also had an astonishing average winning margin of over 100 points per game.
In 2014 the club formed an alliance with the GWS Giants AFL club to become the Manly-Warringah Giants, to help promote and develop footy in the region. The club is now known once again as the Wolves.
