The Green Ducks are a British team that have been fans of marble sports for a long time. Mallard, the captain of the team, won tickets to the Tour de Vellis in 2014 where she saw the Savage Speeders win the tournament for the first time. Being at the competition made Mallard very excited. She returned to her home town of Bermenghank to find her mother ill and in the infirmarblery where unfortunately she passed away two days later. Mallard's father, Bombay, wasn't working at the time and used most of the family's money to pay for the funeral. Her dad continued to struggle finding work and Mallard found herself working on the family farm looking after ducks with her dad and her brother, Billy. Billy had become good friends with farmhands Quacky, Ducky and Goose who were working there while finishing off the education. The group became good friends over the years working on the farm and especially bonded over their love for the Marble League.
Before Marble League 2017, Mallard secretly entered a bid to get tickets and won. She surprised her friends with a trip to see the games in Nijellen and watched the games from the Jungle Jumpers fan area, a team they supported as their uniforms reminded them of the grass from the farm. After they returned home, the group decided to start training to become marble sports athletes. They spoke to Bombay who quit his job in tourism to become their coach. They decided to name their team the Green Ducks. The team started competing in minor leagues across the British Isles, a place not well-known for marble sports at the time. They became the most prominent team, gaining sponsorships, leading the team to become financially stable. They moved to Diondon in 2018 and became the host team of Joshdon Stadium.
During 2018, rumors started to spread that Team Plasma were retiring from the Marble League due to not training enough, leading to an opening in qualifiers for Marble League 2019. The team, who had applied for the games already, were hoping to take their place. On 1st January 2019, the Green Ducks were accepted into the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers and managed to finish in third, successfully qualifying for Marble League 2019 after the third event.
