Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly is looking forward to the Rabbitohs 2020 season, giving his assessment on the Draw, which was confirmed this morning.
“It’s an exciting year for our Sydney-based Members who will have the opportunity to farewell their home ground of 15 seasons in the best way possible in 2020,” Mr Solly said.
“We want everyone to remember ANZ Stadium as the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ home ground, and to create more memories before we head to Bankwest Stadium which is arguably the best Rugby League stadium in the world.
“We will never forget that night in October 2014 when John Sutton held the NRL Premiership trophy aloft at ANZ Stadium, so it’s a privilege to get to relive those memories once again this season before the stadium is redeveloped.
“Our Members and fans can rest assured we will also be doing everything we can to turn Bankwest Stadium into a fitting home ground for the team, and a brilliant experience for anyone attending our matches there. We’re looking forward to unveiling the plans we have for the move as we get closer to that date in July 2020.
In terms of the total draw, we have seven home games on Saturdays which are much better timeslots for families.Blake Solly CEO
"We have no Friday home games that start at 6pm which is another win for the majority of those people wanting to attend games to support the team, and we have three home games in the school holidays. We also have a series of home and away matches against our traditional Sydney rivals, and we want as many Members and fans in the stands to cheer the team home.
“We also have over 50% of our Members that live outside of the Sydney basin, so it’s important for us as a Club to try to join with as many of these people as we can throughout the year.
“It’s also important for the sport to support those that support us, and the people in regional areas have shown they love their Rugby League, hence why we’re happy to do our part to take some of our games to these regional centres.
“Last season we played games on the Sunshine Coast, Central Coast and Mudgee, all in front of bumper crowds, and we’re looking forward to heading to these centres to play Rugby League and expose the Rabbitohs to these areas once again.
“All-in-all we’re excited about the season ahead and the best way that our fans can support the Club is by becoming a Member. We hope to see all of our Members at games all over the country throughout 2020.”
