The Carlton Football Club is delighted to confirm Zac Fisher has extended his contract for an additional two years.
Fisher was already under contract for next season after signing a two-year extension in 2020, and will now remain in Navy Blue until at least the end of 2025.
The 24-year-old has had a stellar season so far, as one of only four Blues to feature in all 15 games while having a consistent impact in the forward line with an already career-best tally of 13 goals.
Fisher’s impact on the scoreboard has seen him form a formidable partnership with fellow small forwards Corey Durdin, Matthew Owies and more recently Jesse Motlop and Josh Honey.
Taken with pick No.27 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft out of York, WA, Fisher spent most of his time in the midfield during his first three years at the Club before transitioning forward in the second half of 2020.
His versatility to play multiple positions has developed into a real asset, with additional midfield minutes in Round 15 against Fremantle coinciding with a season-high 29 disposals at 83 per cent efficiency.
Carlton Head of List Management Nick Austin said the decision to further extend Fisher’s contract showed a strong commitment from both player and club.
“Zac brings some strengths to our side that are really unique, which gives us a point of difference and his versatility and willingness to play whatever role the team needs him to is valued highly internally,” Austin said.
“He’s a popular character around the Club and puts in the work behind the scenes to continuously get the best out of himself and his teammates.
“To sign an extension with still a year to run on his contract tells you everything you need to know about his commitment to the Carlton Football Club and we are excited to see him continue to grow his game over the next three years.”
