The Gorillas were founded on November 5, 2012. They immediately start their recruiting activities and participate already in 2013 in the National Championship of Flag Football Fidaf, disputing in the tackle level several friendlies against Wolverines Piacenza, Academy Gaggiano, Storms Pisa and Trappers Cecina. 

In 2014, they took part in the third national Fidaf championship. They face in the group stage Hammers Monza Brianza, 65ers Arona, G-team Gallarate and Wolverines Piacenza being defeated only by the latter measure. In the playoffs they again face the MB Hammers victoriously and then give up for only 2 points in the quarterfinals against the Wolverines in Piacenza. The Gorillas are about to participate again in 2015 at the Third Division FIDAF National Championship convinced they can improve the result of the previous year.

In the meantime, recruiting initiatives have begun for the newly formed flag football junior team and the first women's football team in the city of Varese, the Jungle Queens.

From October 2014 the Gorillas are concessionaires of the sports field of Via Landro in Varese in the San Fermo district. The Gorillas wear on their helmet their logo and the letter V as a tribute to the city of Varese whose colors they defend: white and red.
