AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan admits Brisbane's facilities are a concern but has ruled out adding to their $5 million investment to the Lions' proposed new headquarters.

The Lions were hopeful of lobbying for more funding from the league for their proposed new base near when they met with the AFL Commission in Brisbane on Friday.

McLachlan also admitted that it was an issue the Lions were more than $1 million short of spending the football department "soft cap".
