Story: Designed by Triple Premiership Player and Proud Eastern Arrernte Man, Darryl White, our 2022 Indigenous guernsey is a representation of both Darryl’s heritage, and the rich history of the Brisbane Lions, including the merging of the Brisbane Bears FC and Fitzroy Lions 25 years ago and a representation of it being 20 years since our triumphant Premiership win in 2002.

The design features lion and bear footprints meeting at the three home grounds: Turrbal and Yuggera, Yugambeh and Wurundjeri country (The Gabba, Carrara and Brunswick St Oval), along with the names of Indigenous AFL players and trainers who have represented the Cub with dignity and pride, including Ringo Hood, who was a trainer for the Fitzroy Lions FC before the merger and is one of only a handful of Indigenous trainers involved in the AFL.

 

The design also includes a nod to Darryl's father, who sadly passed away in 2002 and drove from Alice Springs to the MCG for the 2001 grand final to support his son.

 

The handprints are Darryl's own.
