NRL reaches membership milestone as clubs hit 10,000 mark

NRL reaches membership milestone as clubs hit 10,000 mark
June 10, 2016

The NRL has announced that for the first time in history, all NRL Clubs have secured more than 10,000 members.

In addition, nine of 16 Clubs have registered record membership numbers, making 2016 the most successful Club membership season in history.

The Gold Coast Titans were the final Club to reach the 10,000 milestone after their strong run, which has seen them in the top eight at the half way mark of the competition.

At the commencement of Round 14, NRL Clubs have registered a combined total of close to 290,000 members, which is a 13 per cent increase at the same time in 2015.

NRL Chief Commercial Officer Michael Brown congratulated all Clubs on driving new memberships - which translate into bigger crowds, higher ratings and additional revenue for the Clubs.

Brown commented "at the half-way mark of the regular season, our crowds are up, we have witnessed a fantastic first Holden State of Origin match and for the first time in history, every Club has registered 10,000 members.

"Our marketing and membership teams have been working very hard behind the scenes with all Clubs to ensure we are providing the best entertainment at affordable prices for every round and it is pleasing to see that our members are turning out in force."

With 13 rounds to go in the regular season, general public tickets go on sale today for the NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final.

Fans are encouraged to take advantage of early-bird pricing to ensure they take their seats for history on the first Sunday in October.

Tickets are available at nrl.com/tickets
