For the first time in Rabbitohs and NRL history, a Club has surpassed the 35,000 Member mark, with Rabbitohs Membership now standing at 35,007 proud Members as of this morning (Friday).
South Sydney’s Membership numbers have come a long way, increasing every year over the past decade, with the Club enjoying unprecedented growth since 2006, when the Club’s Membership tally stood at 7,568.
And that record is set to continue to grow throughout 2015, with five-game regional, three-game and supporter Memberships all still available to purchase.
“South Sydney is nothing without its Members,” Rabbitohs CEO Mr John Lee said today.
“We are a Club that is driven and supported by the commitment of our Members and our ongoing commitment to them.
“This achievement is an absolute credit to our outstanding supporter-base that has stuck by our Club in the past and will be with us in the future.”
To celebrate the milestone, the Club's Official Membership Partner, Capital Training Institute, will give away five Double Passes to the Churchill Club for the Club’s clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles on Friday 26 June at ANZ Stadium. Winners will be drawn at random and will be announced in next week’s Bunny Bulletin.
“On behalf of the entire team at Capital Training Institute, we’d like to congratulate the South Sydney Rabbitohs on reaching this huge milestone of 35,000 Members,” said Capital Training Institute CEO, Matthew Sutherland.
“As the Rabbitohs Official Membership Partner, it’s a privilege to be associated with the best Member base in the NRL. We are excited to continue working together, and look forward to celebrating many more significant milestones.”
Every new Member is a new NRL record and there’s still time to join or recruit someone to become a part of the team in 2015!
