On 23 September 2011, it was announced that Brown, who had been on trial for several weeks, had secured a contract with the Brisbane Roar. Brown signed a three-year deal with the club as a player on a full-time youth contract, which allowed him to be on the first team roster but be paid outside of the salary cap. [3]

On 16 May 2012, Brown made his debut at senior level for Brisbane Roar against Chinese side Beijing Guoan in the Champions League, filling in for the injured Shane Stefanutto.

Since then Brown has gone from strength to strength with the Roar, winning the players' player of the season (Gary Wilkins Medal) at the club in the 2016–17 season. [4]
