Brunswick Street Bash – Report
April 9, 2018
The Fitzroy spirit was alive and well on Sunday 8th April as more than 1,000 people flocked to the Brunswick Street Oval for the Brisbane Lions’ first-ever Brunswick Street Bash.
Fans made the most of a warm Autumn weekend in Melbourne by flocking to Fitzroy’s spiritual heartland to watch a total of 86 players across six teams battled it out in an AFL 9s tournament.
Among the teams were some familiar faces from Fitzroy and Lions days gone by, coupled with eager supporters of all ages and abilities and a sprinkling of representatives from Fitzroy FC’s senior men’s and women’s teams.
Even some of the Fitzroy Junior U12 players trialled the modified AFL 9s format in the Bash’s own version of Little League.
