In February 2022, during a major auction event, the franchise made its first player acquisitions. Notable signings included K.L. Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi and Marcus Stoinis. Subsequently, Rahul was appointed as the team’s captain, and former Zimbabwean cricketer Andy Flower was appointed head coach. Additionally, Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian cricketer, joined as the team mentor.

During the 2022 season, the franchise finished third in the group stage and secured a spot in the playoffs. However, they were eliminated in the eliminator match by the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Similarly, in the 2023 season, they again finished third but lost the eliminator, this time to the Mumbai Indians.

Eventually, the Sanjiv Goenka-owned RPSG Group won the rights to operate the Lucknow franchise with a bid of ₹7,090 crore.

To decide its name, the team conducted a competition, ultimately selecting “Super Giants” in January 2022.
