Help build the Lions legacy at Springfield

The Brisbane Lions are seeking support from the Queensland footy community to help build a legacy for Australian football at their new home in Springfield Central.

Brighton Homes Arena, will greatly enhance development pathways for aspiring Australian footy players with the new facility providing Lions Academy boys and girls from across southern Queensland with expansive, dedicated training facilities and access to elite gym and education spaces. 

The Arena will also provide our football community with year-round access to a professional stadium to support community football, with plans to host AFL Queensland finals, representative matches and school programs across two ovals.

It’s an $80 million project and will leave a legacy lasting a lifetime, a legacy that each Queensland footy supporter can be part of.

The Lions have raised 95% of the necessary funds via Government grants, partner contributions and early support by Club benefactors and they have embarked on a public fundraising campaign to raise the remainder.

You can help to ensure that the Lions have the right equipment at Brighton Homes Arena to develop their athletes and keep footy thriving in Queensland’s capital.

Brisbane Lions Chairman Andrew Wellington urged AFL supporters from across Queensland to get behind the Lions Legacy project.

“We are excited to launch the Lions Legacy project, which is an opportunity for our AFL community to build a strong future for our game by fitting out Brighton Homes Arena to showcase community matches and develop our best youth players,” he said.

“You can make donations that are tax deductible, there are special categories of donations, including having your name on the fence of Michael Voss Oval, having your name on one of our grandstand seats and having your name on one of the lockers in the AFL and AFLW changerooms.

“We can’t wait to invite the footy community out later this year to see the Legacy they have helped build.”

You can join fellow like-minded, passionate football supporters and support the project via a donation to the construction of Brighton Homes Arena. 

All donations over $2 will be recognised on the Lions’ website and are tax deductible. Donations over $100 will be recognised on the Donor Wall at Brighton Homes Arena.

You can also have your name etched on our players’ lockers, on a grandstand seat or on the fence surrounding Michael Voss Oval.

Your name will be proudly displayed on each asset and you will be recognised with an exclusive, coloured wedge on the Arena Donor Wall and on the Lions website.
