2020 has been an unprecedented year, but one constant through it all has been the South Sydney spirit on display from Rabbitohs Members.

In a year where family budgets are tight and people’s financial futures are unstable, Rabbitohs Members have rallied behind the Club as the Rabbitohs have now surpassed the 30,000 Member mark for just the fifth time in the Club’s history and for the first time since 2017.

We asked our Members to pledge their Memberships for the 2020 season, and so far over 6800 of our Members have done so.

In turn, the Rabbitohs have come up with a number of ways to say thank you to our Members, including some very special, first-of-its-kind Rabbitohs Member Jerseys produced by our brand new corporate partner of the Club, Classic Sportswear.

Classic Sportswear will be the official apparel partner of the South Sydney Rabbitohs for the next three seasons and the first items in the new range will be the Rabbitohs Thank You Members Jerseys which will feature the names of all Members who pledge their 2020 Membership. This is your chance to have your name, and those of your family and friends who are also Members, on a Rabbitohs jersey alongside your fellow Members! The Rabbitohs NRL team will also wear this jersey in the opening rounds of the 2021 season, pending the release of the 2021 NRL Draw later this season.

“Just like the Rabbitohs, the Classic Sportswear brand has been part of the fabric of Rugby League for much of its existence, and we are very proud of our history of producing elite sports apparel since 1934”

“Our Members have been nothing but staunch supporters of our Club throughout the whole COVID-19 period and we want to say thank you to them for always standing by us, and there was no better way to kick off our partnership with Classic Sportswear than this very special Thank You Members Jersey,” Mr Solly said.

“We’ve had over 6,800 of our Ticketed Members pledge their Membership despite them not knowing if they were going to be able to go to any games at all this season, as recently as May this year, and we want to recognise all of those Ticketed Members who have and will pledge their Members by featuring their name on the Rabbitohs Jersey alongside their family, friends and fellow Members.

“When we talked to Warren Carney and his team at Classic Sportswear about the best way to kick start our partnership, they jumped at the chance to produce this special merchandise item at a discounted rate for our Members.

“When you think Classic Sportswear you think Rugby League, and when you think Rabbitohs you think of our huge, passionate Membership base.

“We’re bringing them together to say thank you and to welcome Classic Sportswear into our family. The synergy could not be better. We’ve both been part of Rugby League forever and a day and we can service the oldest, proudest and loudest Club and Membership base in the competition.

“We also know that many people are doing it tough during this unprecedented time and some people may not be able to afford to purchase a Rabbitohs jersey, so we have other offerings around merchandise vouchers and rollovers into 2021 to try and help them save some money and remain a Member of this great Club.

Our Members have been nothing but staunch supporters of our Club throughout the whole COVID-19 period and we want to say thank you to them for always standing by us

Blake Solly CEO

“At the Rabbitohs we are all about that feeling of belonging to something special and our Members certainly belong to our family, a family that now includes the great people at Classic Sportswear.”

Warren Carney, Managing Director at Classic Sportswear, is excited at the opportunity to partner with the South Sydney Rabbitohs and become part of the family at the most successful and historic club in the NRL.

“Just like the Rabbitohs, the Classic Sportswear brand has been part of the fabric of Rugby League for much of its existence, and we are very proud of our history of producing elite sports apparel since 1934,” said Mr Carney.

“We also see great synergies between our two brands, particularly the way the Rabbitohs and Classic Sportswear harness our wonderful heritage but also continue to evolve and contemporise.

“Everyone at Classic is proud to be launching our partnership with the Rabbitohs via this special first-of-its-kind Thank You Members Jersey, with an opportunity for passionate Rabbitohs Members to add their names to the first playing jersey to be worn in 2021.

“This is the type of innovation that Classic are renowned for, and we look forward to working closely with the club to provide all Rabbitohs Members and fans with quality apparel from next season.”
