Every Fitzroy and now Brisbane Bears and Lions player (whether they played in the firsts, seconds or thirds), official, trainer, medico or committeeman who officiated in any game or assisted in any capacity, automatically qualifies as a member of the Fitzroy-Brisbane Lions Past Players & Officials Association, the minute they stop playing or officiating.

We welcome all-comers, who at some stage of their lives were part of either Fitzroy, the Brisbane Bears, or Brisbane Lions, and are interested in keeping in contact with players from their own playing period.

Like any club or association, we rely heavily on membership, and the return of annual subscriptions to assist us to meet our yearly operating costs, and provide a range of benefits for those who sign-up each year.

So if you know the whereabouts of ex-players or officials, then please contact Robert Allen on the details below so we can make contact with them, and hopefully get them along to one of our social functions and reunite them with some old acquaintances.
