In 1961, the Italian Australian Social Club of Gippsland was developed with the intention of representing the local Italian sporting fraternity in the La Trobe soccer league. IASCO changed their name to Morwell Falcons in 1964. The influence of successful construction industry businessman, Don Di Fabrizio, helped the club enormously. In 1969, Di Fabrizio assumed the presidency.
The club eventually joined the National Soccer League in 1993 as a replacement for Preston Lions. In 1994, Morwell won the Dockerty Cup.
In 1996, the club made some big changes. Their name for more than 30 years, the Morwell Falcons, was changed to the Gippsland Falcons in an attempt to associate themselves more with Victoria's La Trobe Valley region. The Gippsland board was streamlined and the club appointed high-profile former Socceroos coach, Frank Arok.
Not even Arok could improve Gippsland's success. The club folded in 2001.
