The milestone continues the Parramatta Eels' record-setting year for memberships, with the club on-track to hit its target of 20,000 members for the season.
Eels CEO Ken Edwards says the milestone is only the beginning for the Pirtek Parramatta Eels.
"To go from 12,000 to 16,000 members the year after collecting the wooden spoon is a great achievement," Edwards said.
"But more so it's a true reflection of the work our club, our coach and our players have done re-engaging with our fans and the community.
"It is our mission to engage with the people of Parramatta and Western Sydney and enrich their lives.
"We do this through strengthening and growing our connection with schools, our charity and community partners and our junior league which is experiencing record growth.
"I believe fans see this and say that's a club I want to be a member of.
"We will continue to work hard as we build towards our target of 20,000 strong members of the Blue and Gold army."
With brand new baby and toddler memberships, three-game ticketed memberships for as little as $50 and an easier to use membership website, there's never been a better time to become a member of the Parramatta Eels and join the Blue and Gold Army.
On top of our membership packages, not only do our members get discounts off merchandise and ticket sales - the Blue and Gold Army gets all our breaking news, team list updates and exclusive offers before anyone else, as we show our appreciation for our members who make the Eels such a great club.
All our Membership Services staff at the Parramatta Eels are committed to continue working hard to provide the best possible experience for our members as well as growing the Blue and Gold Army to our 2013 target of 20,000 and beyond.
Thanks to each and every one of our 2013 members - this club is nothing without you!
