3 hours ago | Tim Costello
Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that the Club has surpassed its 2015 final Membership number before Round 2 this year.
Wests Tigers currently have 9,346 Members, four ahead of the final count last year.
With the team not taking to the field in Round 2 until Monday night the Club is calling on supporters to sign up and help get the number to 10,000 ahead of the clash with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Leichhardt Oval.
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe thanked those who had already committed to the Club for the 2016 season.
"On behalf of everyone at the Club I'd like to thank the 9,346 supporters who have shown their commitment to Wests Tigers by signing up as a Member for this year," said Pascoe. "The momentum has been steadily building over the last few weeks, with Saturday's opening round win certainly helping to grow the Membership base.
"I call on supporters who may still be holding off from signing up to get onboard and help us reach the 10,000 mark ahead of Monday's game," he said. "We've made positive changes across the organisation and with the support of our Members we'll continue to build a Club that will be a force both on and off the field.
"We understand that we have to win back the trust of all of our stakeholders, including our Members and this will only be done through hard work," said Pascoe. "While it's nice to have already surpassed last year's number this is a journey that is just beginning."
Wests Tigers have Membership packages available to suit all budgets, with packages available for all grounds, or just your favourite.
This season Wests Tigers have introduced a range of off-field activities at every game to provide entertainment before kick off.
The Club is working hard to provide additional experiences for attendees at every game across the 2016 season.
At Round 2 the Club will be celebrating the role that junior Rugby League plays in the game before the NRL side takes on the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in a Monday night showdown at Leichhardt Oval.
To add to the atmosphere there will be a number of musicians playing around the venue, along with a dedicated kids zone.
This kicked off with a bang, both on and off the field, on Saturday, with the Club holding a Multicultural day at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
Numerous cultural activities and displays were held in the forecourt before a special on field performance, followed by a thrilling Wests Tigers 34-26 victory over the New Zealand Warriors.
