Sir Doug Nicholls is recognised as one of our Clubs greats with his contribution to our Club and society more broadly.

The annual Sir Doug Nicholls Round, formerly known as AFL Indigenous Round, sees the AFL community celebrate and recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their contribution to Australian Football.

Each year the Brisbane Lions commemorate this round with an Indigenous guernsey designed by local artists and current/past players. These guernseys are worn during the AFL seasons Sir Doug Nicholls Round as well as the AFLW Indigenous Round.
