History

On 4 July 1996 the Australian Football League (AFL) approved the first ever club merger in VFL/AFL history. The Brisbane Bears and the Fitzroy Lions combined to form the Brisbane Lions. The merged entity played its home games at The Gabba.

Prior to the merge the Brisbane Bears had enjoyed a successful season, losing a preliminary final to the eventual premiers, North Melbourne. In contrast, Fitzroy had finished in last place for two successive seasons, although they contained a number of promising young players.
