Furphy Beer has teamed up with Thinkerbell to create a limited edition glass boot to commemorate the AFL’s Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin’s predicted 1000th goal in social competition.

The announcement:

Furphy Beer has created an ‘Un-buddy-believable’ glass boot to commemorate Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin’s scheduled 1000th AFL goal in a social competition via Thinkerbell.

Furphy Beer, official beer partner of the Sydney Swans, has commissioned the creation of 10 limited edition glass containers inspired by Franklin’s size 13 left foot boot. For a chance to win one, fans must post a photo or video of themselves celebrating the moment Franklin scores the 1000th goal with the hashtag #unBuddybelieveable (and tagging @furphybeer).

Malcolm Eadie, Lion Craft and Premium Portfolio Director, said: “As a brand, Furphy has always celebrated the art of great Australian storytelling and there is no doubt that Franklin’s 1000th goal will go down as an epic story for fans. fans. So we thought what better way to commemorate the event than with an equally rare keepsake.

Thinkerbell Head Creative Tinker, Sesh Moodley says: “Lance has already scored so many incredible goals, so what incredible thing could we achieve for Buddy Franklin to score his 1000th goal? Writing a brief for a glassblower to create a replica of his left boot! We can’t wait to see how fans celebrate the #unbuddybelievable moment on social media.

With 996 goals to his name, Franklin is on course to become the sixth player in league history to reach the record 1,000 goals. After scoring a goal in the first round of the 2022 season last weekend, Franklin is just four goals away from the historic achievement. Swans next match is tonight against Geelong at the SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground).
