Jason Akermanis was one of the AFL’s most electrifying players and one of the biggest celebrities, renowned not just for his football brilliance but his honest, open and outspoken approach to the game.
Akermanis’ AFL career is littered with awards. He won the AFL’s ultimate individual honour, the Brownlow Medal, in 2001. He was a triple Premiership player with the Brisbane Lions and was made All-Australian a whopping four times. Nearly as famous for his post-match handstands as for his athletic abilities, Akermanis was also voted as club Best and Fairest twice.
We are excited to welcome Jason to the Club’s Ambassador program in 2023 and look forward to seeing him around the Club!
