Brisbane Lions 2022 AFL TV schedule, squad and team guide

This squad is teeming with talent and hungry for a premiership.

Brisbane have firmly established themselves as one of the competition's elite clubs. Charlie Cameron plays some of the most exhilarating football in the country, Lachie Neale is just 2 years removed from a Brownlow medal and Cameron Rayner will be back on the field after missing the entirety of last season.

The Lions might have been a little disheartened at their 33-point loss to Melbourne, until they saw the terrors the Demons went on to unleash against the Cats and Bulldogs. So despite losing a nail-biter against the Bulldogs in the semi-final, the Lions can walk away from the 2021 finals saying they played the Dees closer than anyone.

It's very likely Brisbane will delight fans yet again with another strong season. But you do have to wonder when they will start to expect a little more finals success from this roster.

How to watch Brisbane Lions AFL matches

If you're a casual Brisbane Lions supporter, you can keep up with the team on free-to-air television through the Seven Network. The matches broadcast on Channel 7 vary from state to state, but a number of major blockbusters will not be shown on Channel 7 in Queensland.

Brisbane Lions squad

Brisbane Lions history

The Lions were formed in 1996 from the merger of the Fitzroy Lions and the Brisbane Bears, joining the national AFL competition in 1997. They soon found great success, appearing in 4 consecutive AFL grand finals from 2001 to 2004, winning the first 3. That squad stands right among the best ever in VFL/AFL history.

The club also has a women's team that competes in the AFLW. The Brisbane Lions play their home matches at the Gabba and are captained by Dayne Zorko.
