Friday, August 10
Wesley College, St Kilda Road

The Brisbane Lions' official 'Club Hub' - located outside Gate 5 at Etihad Stadium - will be our fans' one-stop shop for the following:

  • Lions Shop Club merchandise sales and enquiries, including all the Clear the Den specials! 
  • 2018 membership and ticketing enquiries
  • 2018 member cap collection
  • Pre-arranged ticket collection 
  • Purchase match-day raffle tickets (see below)
  • Collect your limited edition ‘All for One’ guernsey (for those who pre-ordered)

The Club Hub will be open for operation from 5pm on game-day.

All Brisbane Lions fans are invited to attend our FREE pre-game social club facility located in the Legends Bar at Etihad Stadium (Gate 2, Level 2) - all thanks to Chemist Warehouse.

The Legend’s Bar will be open from 5:30pm (two hours prior to game start) giving fans the opportunity to grab a bite or drink before the game, and hear from some special guests.

Joining fans in the Social Club prior to the Pies game will be some of the first-year Brisbane Lions players and Development Coaches, who will be in Melbourne during the Club’s NEAFL bye.

Entry to the Legend’s Room is free for any Lions fan with a valid entry ticket into the ground.   

A range of food and drinks will be to purchase inside the room, with plenty of giveaways and prizes also up for grabs. 

So if you’re at Etihad Stadium, we hope you can drop into the Legend’s Bar at any time between 5:30–7:25pm on Saturday.  

Brisbane Lions VIC-based members and supporters with general admission entry can sit together in the 'Lions Only' area located on Level 3 at Etihad Stadium between Aisles 31-32 on Level 3.

Please note that this area is different to our previous games at Etihad Stadium this year, as the Lions will be entering the arena from the opposite (La Trobe Street) end as we have become accustomed to. The cheer squad will be located in Aisle 24 on Level 1 (Gate 7).    

Members wishing to upgrade their GA membership and purchase a Level 1 seat can do so directly through Ticketmaster. A Lions-Only area has been reserved on Level 1 next to the cheer squad at the La Trobe Street end of the stadium (Gate 7). 

Alternatively, you can check the availability of other seating areas around the stadium via Ticketmaster.   

All Lions members and supporters will have the opportunity to WIN their way into the team's changerooms after the game courtesy of our special match-day raffle.

Tickets are just $2 each (or three for $5) and will be available from the pre-game Social Club in the Legends Bar (Gate 2, Level 2) and the official Club Hub (outside Gate 5) before the game.

There will be three prizes up for grabs, including:

Prize 1 - An invitation for the winner and one (1) guest to visit the Lions' change rooms after the game and receive a signed guernsey from their favourite player

Prize 2 - $100 food and beverage voucher at The Royal Derby Hotel in Fitzroy

Prize 3 - Mystery merchandise item

A limited number of tickets are available, with all prizes to be drawn at half-time so that winners can be notified immediately by phone.  

The Brisbane Lions look forward to welcoming a host of ‘Women of the Pride’ members at Etihad Stadium this Saturday evening for their annual VIC-based get-together.

Limited spaces are still available for the dinner to be held in the Medallion Club. Contact the Club should you wish to book on: 07 3335 1777
