The Brisbane Lions and the Brisbane Roar today announced a historic collaboration that will allow members of both clubs to enjoy a top-level cross-code experience.
Lions Chief Executive Greg Swann and Roar Chief Executive David Pourre said the initiative had set a new benchmark of co-operation among Queensland sporting clubs and would deliver a unique and FREE opportunity for up to 10,000 members across the two organisations, which have both won their respective national competition crowns three times.
The Lions-Roar cross-code collaboration will mean:
- When the Roar hosts Hyundai A-League Champions Melbourne Victory at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, 12 March (6:30pm), up to 5000 existing Lions season ticket-holding members can each receive a FREE ticket to the match.
- In return, when the Lions host Collingwood at the Gabba on Saturday, 14 May (7.25pm), up to 5000 existing Roar season members can redeem a FREE ticket to that match.
“This State's very unique,” Swann said.
“I think most people barrack for the Queensland teams. If you're a Brisbane boy you barrack for the Roar, you barrack for the (Brisbane) Broncos, you barrack for the Lions, and (Queensland) Reds.
“The Roar provide a great product during the summer months and the Lions do the same in winter, so we see this as a good partnership that can benefit both Clubs and our members.
“We’re really happy to working with the Roar and I’d encourage fans of both codes to get involved.”
Eligible members will be directly emailed the offer this week.
The offer is available to eligible club members who signed on prior to Monday 22nd February 2016 with season game entry to the Gabba. Terms and conditions apply – email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
