The AFL took another step towards its goal of making a mark in western Sydney by officially signing its 10,000th Greater Western Sydney club member on Wednesday.

The Giants announced the milestone with their first game in the senior competition still seven months away, to the delight of their chief executive Dale Holmes.

"This is a big achievement for us," Holmes said.

"We're well aware that there is still a long way to go and we do have some big ambitions for the future.

"But to have 10,000 people already committing to the Giants and putting their hand up to say I support the club, that's a great result.

"The passion from our supporters has been really inspiring.

"From a family of six that are just learning the game, right through to a mother and son who have travelled across the country to every game with us this year, they're all getting behind their local club."

The next major mark for the Giants will come in the AFL draft, to be held in Sydney in November.
