The Parramatta Eels have embarked on one of the most ambitious membership drives in the history of NRL. The club is determined to double its membership base in the next twelve months as it focuses on an exciting future.
In the first 24 hours over a thousand fans pledged their loyalty to the club ahead of what will be an amazing 2013 season with Ricky Stuart as coach and an impressive line-up both on and off the field.
Tammy Clarke from the Central Coast purchased her membership within the first 24 hours of the drive. She says, “I’m so excited about the team and Ricky Stuart. It’ll be a packed house. Last year was disappointing but I was in my seat for every game and I’ll never give it up.”
Our unique focus on women this year has prompted many of our female supporters to pledge their loyalty early on and become members, just like Tammy. The top twenty-five female club members will be rewarded by having their names printed on the panel of the players pink jersey. This strip will be worn by our NRL team for the “Women in League” round.
We know most family budgets are already stretched so the Parramatta Eels are offering free membership to children when a paying adult signs up as part of both the Kenny and Sterling memberships. The merchandise they’ll receive is worth $95.00
On top of the many membership packages available, for the first time ever, you can become a member for as little as $7.92 per month with our new monthly payment option.
All our regional and interstate members will feel like they’re closer to the action than ever before. They’ll be included in the inner sanctum here at the Eels. The team is also taking one game to the Central West of NSW in Mudgee.
A group of members have assisted the club in a new concept whereby Eels members are now able to become Eels for life. It’s as simple as ticking a box and your membership will automatically be renewed each year. It’s the ideal way to secure your seat forever. Long-time Eels member Brad Wardel said of the new deals, “It was fantastic to see the members being able to contribute. Our ideas have come to life.” He added, “I think it’s awesome. It will save many of us a lot of mucking about with our memberships. It’ll all be done for us.”
Already fans are pledging their support for the Parramatta Eels, a club that boasts a proud history and an exciting future with the most loyal fan-base in rugby league.
