Brisbane Roar Football Club is on track for their biggest ever membership base with the club close to exceeding last season’s numbers three months out from the start of the Hyundai A-League 2014/15 campaign.
Following the closure of same seat guarantees for renewing members on Monday, Brisbane Roar already has 8,064 members – just 48 short of last season’s total membership base of 8,112.
Managing Director Sean Dobson said the commitment of the Brisbane Roar members was impressive, with the big numbers due to both the continual on-field success of the team as well as the new club-built membership platform.
“This season we decided to build our own membership system, which shows that we are serious in investing in the future of the club with our members at the forefront of our minds,” Dobson said.
“It’s important for us to reward those who support us and the new membership platform allows for an easier, more user-friendly system than what we’ve had previously.
“This club has shown we have the ability to succeed on the field and initiatives such as this ensure we can support the club off the field in the best possible way.”
The 8,064 tally only includes full season members with Global (one game), Lite (three game), Lil Roary (infant) and Westfield W-League memberships yet to be opened for purchase.
Head Coach Mike Mulvey was amazed at the effort shown by the club’s most loyal supporters and urged those yet to commit to the three-time Hyundai A-League Champions to visit roarmemberships.com.au
“It’s fantastic to hear how big the numbers are with still three months to go until the season starts,” Mulvey said.
“There were 52,000 people at the Grand Final and we’d love to see more of our fans pledge their commitment to the club by becoming members.
“The squad is preparing well and training hard for the season ahead and we’re doing this for our fans.”
Brisbane Roar is also working on plans on how to comply with Football Federation Australia’s new active support rules and minimise the effect this has on match day attendance in the area.
