A Short History Of The Brisbane Lions
The Fitzroy Football Club was established in 1883 and won eight VFL premierships, with the club also boasting six Brownlow Medal winners. The Brisbane Bears started in 1987 and enjoyed limited success, resulting in financial struggles for the team. Following a tumultuous period for Fitzroy, the decision to merge the two teams came in 1996, with the Brisbane Lions officially joining the AFL competition in 1997. As the most successful club of the 2000’s, the Brisbane Lions appeared in four consecutive Grand Finals from 2001 to 2004, winning three premierships. Due to its Fitzroy origins, the team enjoys a large supporter base in Victoria. The club’s song ‘The Pride of Brisbane Town’ is based on the original Fitzroy club song and is sung to the music of the French national anthem. The Lion’s club mascot was Bernie ‘Gabba’ Vegas until 2016, when he was replaced by Roy the Lion. In 2021, the club introduced their new mascot, Auroara the lioness.
