Raiders Hit 9000 Members

The Canberra Raiders have exceeded their expectations in terms of membership in 2011, reaching 9000 members this week.

At the start of the pre-season the club was looking to target 8000 members for season 2011 after achieving just over 6000 last season and are ecstatic to announce today that they've gone through the 9000 barrier for the first time.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said the response to the drive this year has been overwhelming and said the continued support by the people of the ACT region and interstate and international fans has been tremendous.
