2013 AFL Grand Final

The Chicago Swans would like to thank the over 200 fans that packed The Brownstone Tavern on Lincoln Ave in Chicago to watch the Fremantle Dockers face the Hawthorn Hawks in what turned out to be a thrilling 2013 AFL Grand Final. In the end, the Hawthorn Hawks triumphed 11.11 (77) to Fremantle 8.14 (62) in a game that was still in the balance with minutes to play.

Hosting the AFL Grand Final and officially drawing the winners of the Qantas Raffle has become an annual tradition for our football club. We would like to thank our major sponsor, The Brownstone Tavern, who do an amazing job on the biggest night of the year for the club and continue to dedicate countless hours in the kitchen perfecting their rendition of an Aussie meat pie for this event. The Chicago Swans and The Brownstone Tavern look forward to hosting the AFL Grand Final for many years to come.

The 2013 Qantas Raffle was the most successful in recent history. Thank you to everyone who supported the club and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by purchasing raffle tickets. Over the years, The Chicago Australian Football Association has donated over $12,000 in raffle proceeds to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and “Project Relentless”. Local football clubs rely heavily on external support and we are extremely lucky to have people & sponsors both within the club and externally that believe in our future. Congratulations to the winners!
