Brisbane Lions NEAFL side will kick start their premiership defence in the Northern Territory against the NT Thunder at TIO Stadium on April 7th.

Round 2 marks the side’s first home game of the season, at Burpengary, with a grand final rematch against the Sydney Swans.

The first curtain raiser at the Gabba is Round 8’s clash against the Swans, before the Lions’ Seniors also take on Sydney in Round 10 of the AFL Premiership season.

All up the NEAFL side will play four times at the Gabba, with three of those appearances curtain raisers before the Senior side.

The team will also play AFL curtain raisers at GWS GIANTS’ Spotless Stadium in Round 4; Metricon Stadium against the Gold Coast Suns on July 28 and Round 18’s clash against the Sydney Swans at the SCG.

AFL State League and International Manager, Simon Laughton said, “We are confident the 2018 fixture will allow for a competitive season, coming off a thrilling Grand Final between Sydney and Brisbane at the SCG in 2017.”

All clubs will have three byes, with the NEAFL to retain a three-week finals series featuring the top six teams.
