Sydney FC has reached its Grand Goal of 10,000 Members for the first time in the club’s history, on the day the Sky Blues kick off the Hyundai A-League 2013/14 season.
The club has also signed up record numbers of Junior Blues Members with 8,200 youngsters coming on board to take the Sydney FC family to 18,200.
This season’s achievement is the second year in a row Sydney FC has broken its Membership sales record with 8,462 Members signing up for the Hyundai A-League 2012/13 season.
Strong sales in the final few days before tonight’s opening game at Allianz Stadium has allowed the club to reach the Grand Goal of 10,000 Members in the lead up to kick off. (7.30pm)
“We set ourselves a target to reach 10,000 Members for the first time in the club’s history and I’m happy to say we have achieved our goal,” said Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata.
“I’d like to thank every one of our Members for their loyalty and support. To have reached our target in time for the start of the season shows just how passionate and dedicated our Members are. They deserve a lot of credit.”
The Junior Blues Membership allows the 8,200 youngsters (aged 12 years and under) free entry to all 14 of Sydney FC’s Hyundai A-League 2013/14 home fixtures, as well as other benefits.
“We are delighted to be welcoming a whole new generation of Sydney FC Members with over 8,000 young supporters backing the club this year,” continued Pignata.
“We hope they all have a happy and long association with Sydney FC and I’d like to wish all of our Members and fans a very exciting and enjoyable season.”
Sydney FC Memberships are still a cheaper option for fans wanting to attend the majority of home games and will remain on sale. The Membership also includes the cost of public transport to and from the games, from anywhere in Sydney. Members can take advantage of the free transport by simply showing their Membership card.
Sydney FC kick off their Hyundai A-League 2013/14 campaign at home to the Newcastle Jets at Allianz Stadium tonight. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
