The Brisbane Lions put together a great 2019 AFL campaign. They made it from the bottom third of the ladder the year prior to finishing second and breaking through to the finals for the first time in 10 years.
The end of the season wasn't that impressive, but overall the team had a magnificent run. It will be exciting to see if they show even more improvement as the 2020 AFL season rolls around.
Chris Fagan's men added some new blood in recent months, with Callum Ah Chee, Grant Birchall and Cam Ellis-Yolmen joining the squad. As long as the Lions maintain their winning ways, it's a good time to be a fan.
How to watch Brisbane Lions AFL matches
If you're a casual Brisbane Lions supporter, you may be able to keep up with the team on free-to-air television, with some matches available on Seven Network. However, matches broadcast on Channel Seven vary from state to state.
Kayo Sports is the most affordable option, with subscriptions starting from $25/month. There's also a 14-day free trial for new customers. The platform gives you access to more than 50 sports, as well as excellent features like SplitView and Interactive Stats. There are no contracts, so you can cancel your subscription anytime. We have a Kayo vs Foxtel guide that should help you determine which provider is a better fit for you.
Alternatively, AFL fans can follow the competition with AFL Live Pass, available for free to selected Telstra customers. If you're not on Telstra, you can simply download the official AFL Live app from the App Store or Google Play and purchase a subscription for a week, month or the entire season.
Keep in mind that live streaming is limited to a seven-inch display size, so you won't be able to watch on the big screen. If you watch on the go a lot then AFL Live Pass is well worth looking into.
For more information, we have a useful guide on how to stream the 2020 AFL season, which includes a full breakdown of providers.
