The South Sydney Rabbitohs continue to surpass key milestones in Membership, with the Club passing the 20,000 Member mark for the 2015 season today (Wednesday).
The milestone represents a significant achievement given that the Club reached 20,000 Members for the 2014 season on the eve of Christmas last year.
Rabbitohs prop-forward and Grand Final try-scorer, George Burgess, was excited to hear about the important news today.
“It’s a great achievement to get here so early,” said Burgess of the milestone.
“The fans have been so dedicated for so long, and it really shows walking around the streets now. South Sydney fans aren’t afraid to show their support, and to know that we’re cracking milestones in Membership so early in the year – it’s pretty exciting.”
After a season that saw over 637,000 people turn out in person to watch the Rabbitohs, including a ground record 83,833 at ANZ Stadium for the Grand Final – most of whom wore red and green – Burgess couldn’t stress enough the importance of Rabbitohs Members everywhere turning out in numbers and if they aren’t Members already, becoming one.
“It’s always good to know that you’ve got the fans behind you – they’re massive for us,” said Burgess.
“You just need to look at the Grand Final and see the kind of support we got there to understand how big this family is and how big it could still become.
“So I say, don’t think about it, just join up! We’re building something here and we want everyone to come and become part of something that we think is, and will be, a pretty special ride moving forward.”
There’s a Membership package to suit every fan who wants to show their pride for the mighty Rabbitohs in 2015. From Western Australian and Queensland specific packages, to those who can attend some or all of our home games and even Supporter Memberships for those living afar, there has never been a better time to sign up.
