Zac Bailey will call the Lions home for a further two years after penning a new deal securing him until 2026.

The news comes after a career-best year booting 37 goals in total, highlighted by a haul of six coming in the Q-Clash against the Gold Coast Suns, an effort that saw Bailey awarded the Marcus Ashcroft Medal.

The dynamic small forward remains empathetic in repaying the faith the same club showed in him at an early age after the Lions snapped him up with pick 15 of the 2017 National Draft.

“I've absolutely loved my first five years at the club and really feel at home here,” Bailey told Lions Media.

“Personally, I just want to continue to build on what I have done over the last five years. I feel as a player I've come a long way, but I also feel as if I've still got a lot of improvement left in me.

“From a team perspective, the goal is to hopefully make it to the Grand Final. I think after the way we finished last year; the group is hungrier than ever to achieve success.

“And I think that the squad we have right now is a really exciting one and I'm excited to see what we are able to achieve as a group over the next few years.”

Brisbane's Lions General Manager of Football, Danny Daly, expressed his gratitude to the Norwood product, excited by his growth in Season 2022 and him playing a part moving forward.

“Zac has really taken his game to a new level in the last two seasons and become an important part of our football program” Daly said.

Since arriving at the Club he has continued to improve his own game each year, and as a result that has helped the team with continued improvement and success.

“This contract extension is a great reward for the hard work put in by Zac and we are all thrilled to know he will be a Brisbane Lion for the next four seasons.”
