AFL legend Jonathan Brown remains one of the game’s modern icons and has made a seamless transition from football to a career in media. Browny is a member of Fox Footy’s Monday night program On The Couch and a key feature of the station’s AFL coverage.
On the field Browny’s career was headlined by three Premierships, three Brisbane Lions Club Champion Awards, two All-Australian births and was awarded a Coleman Medal. The son of Brian Brown, a former Fitzroy player, Browny grew up in Warrnambool and was drafted by the Lions in 1999. In 2000 he made his debut and saw finals action in his first year as a Lion. The following year he became an AFL Premiership player as the Lions secured a history making win.
In 2002 Browny won his second Premiership medal before he produced a strong finals series in 2003, being best afield in the Preliminary Final, as the Lions won their third straight title. From 2007 – 2010 he played some of his best football, winning a Coleman Medal in 2007. Following Michael Voss’ retirement, he was made Co-Captain in 2007 before taking the top job in 2009. He has won the AFLP Best Captain and Most Courageous Player awards on multiple occasions.
Browny and his wife Kylie have three children Olivia, Jack and Macy. He released his autobiography Life & Football in mid 2015. Recently he hosted Fox Footy's Pie Nights.
Australian Rules Football Player
Four’N Twenty is synonymous with sport – and sports stars. Playing for Melbourne Football Club, Tayla Harris is an Australian Rules Football player. Tayla first made her mark as a marquee player for Brisbane Lions in the inaugural AFLW season, before moving to Carlton Blues the following year, where she went on to become AFLW’s leading goalkicker for three years running.
Ultimately the two-time All-Australian’s sky-high kick and ability to rise to extraordinary heights through the AFLW have earned her a reputation as a leader for the next generation.
“I’m honoured to follow in the footsteps of legendary ambassadors who have partnered with Four’N Twenty over the years. Not only is Four’N Twenty a fixture at sporting events, but it is also a national icon! I’m proud to partner with a brand that shares similar values to me – in particular being progressive and inclusive,” said Harris.
NBA All-Star Ben Simmons has returned to his roots being a Four’N Twenty brand ambassador. The Melbourne-born player will represent and share his lifelong passion for the iconic Australian pie brand in Australia and the USA. The partnership includes an image of Ben and his name featured on consumer promotions and in engaging media campaigns, and his enthusiastic support of the launch of new products in Australia and the USA.
“I’ve grown up eating Four’N Twenty pies and I still love them. I am thrilled to be a global brand ambassador for this iconic Australian brand. There is nothing better than a Four’N Twenty pie.” Simmons said.
