Richmond Tigers break membership records topping 70,000 barrier

Richmond Tigers break membership records topping 70,000 barrier
June 25, 2015

The Richmond Tigers AFL club has broken its membership record for the fifth consecutive year, breaking through the 70,000 barrier for the first time.

The Club ticked over the milestone on the afternoon of Tuesday 24th June, eclipsing last year’s final tally of 66,000.

Commenting on the achievement, Richmond Chief Executive Brendon Gale stated "the support our members provide us is simply amazing.

“We can never question their loyalty, passion and commitment, both on match-day as they fill the stadiums, and in their support of our off-field endeavours.

“Without their support, we simply could not operate to the level that allows us to be competitive in this competition.

“We pride ourselves on making our members’ experience as fulfilling as possible, and we are determined to repay their faith with on-field success in the years to come.”

Richmond became just the third Club in AFL/VFL history to break through the 60,000 member barrier, in 2013.

Richmond membership tallies since 2010:

2014 – 66,000
2013 – 60,000
2012 – 53,000
2011 – 47,000
2010 – 42,000
