7k behind last year with two less clubs reporting - just over 10k ahead if we take those two clubs corresponding figures as an estimate.
Fair to say that growth is looking pretty minimal? Whats the jump been like year on year?
The jump 2017 - 2018 was bigger than the year before - at the moment I think without all clubs reporting its too hard to tell how its trending.
The current guess is 6% growth. I would say healthy rather than minimal
Eels at 19,015
The higher memberships go the harder it will to find growth. Frankly if we’re only growing by 10-20K each year I’m ok with that so long as it’s growing.
The next big jumps will come from stadiums being completed. 2020 when WSS stadium is there from the start of the season will drive crowds and memberships IMO. Likewise the new cowboys stadium should be great for memberships. The next Sydney stadium being completed (likely Allianz) will also see some positive growth.
Overall I think it’s best to keep expectations in check.
West Tigers 10,000+
Keep in mind the Broncos have not updated their tally for 3 weeks.
Pre Christmas update has us only 2.5k behind last year with two less teams reporting. Add those and we're ~12k ahead so still tracking well for positive growth.
Broncos were 23,124 back on 25th November.Their calculator must be with A Gee,
Gus must be giving elocution lessons to his football staff,,still not on the board yet
They added a counter then, and removed it before the next update and haven't restored it.
I blame Andrew Gee.
Only Souths have added anything since the last update pre-Christmas. Presuming most clubs don't go back til tomorrow anyway.
A little more movement now most clubs have returned for the new year. Still no word from Penrith or the Titans, and some clubs now a long time without any update either.
Still sitting notionally around 12k ahead of the same point last year (officially 2k behind)
Knights looking good to break the 20k mark for the first time ever.
Will crack 25k in 2020 if we make the finals I reckon.
Still no sign of figures from Penrith or the Titans, all clubs who are reporting are now past 10k except Manly, and most are either around the same figure as this time last year or further ahead which is positive.
Add the approx 14k Penrith & Titans would bring to the table and we're roughly 12-13k ahead still. Even the off-season from hell hasn't appeared to stop the growth.
I can't believe that we are halfway through January and there are still clubs who haven't posted any total yet. Seems like the NRL have stopped caring about this.
If the Eels ever got their act together they'd be No.1 in membership in Sydney by some length. The new stadium should help.
Noticed the Eels aren't actually selling memberships into all areas of the new Stadium. On the west, they only have 3 bays available for membership (I know a large part of this stand will be corporate), plus they have no lower corners and large chunks of the south not available.
Will BankWest Stadium have their own members? Or might there be another reason? Whilst I don't see them selling all seats to members (be nice if they did), the lower west I would imagine there would be some demand for the lower west at least.
With a 30k capacity and probably around 15k full ticket members they wont be selling all areas I suppose?
