Options from as low as $30 went on sale today as the Vodafone Warriors launched their 2016 membership programme.
The packages also feature child memberships slashed to just $49 in all categories.
“The 2016 season couldn’t be more exciting, especially with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Issac Luke coming to the club,” said Vodafone Warriors membership manager William Felgate.
“It’s a great time to become part of the Vodafone Warriors by signing up as a member.
“We’ve got options tailored to suit almost everyone, from those who are committed to coming to all our homes games to those who can’t make it but still want to belong and to support the club.”
Other features for 2016 include a revamped seating plan for Mount Smart Stadium and tiered pricing in the East and West Stands while the new cost of a child membership equates to a cost of less than $4.50 a game for the club’s 11 Auckland-based matches.
The key points of the Vodafone Warriors’ 2016 membership programme are:
- Membership options available from as low as $30
- Full season memberships available from as low as $129
- Payment plan option available enabling members to pay off the full price of memberships over multiple months via Debit Success
- Child memberships at just $49 for the season in all categories
Felgate also highlighted the benefits of the Warrior Proud membership.
“It’s a great option for fans planning to make it to one home game next season,” he said.
“Become a Warrior Proud member and you receive a ticket to one of our 12 regular season home games of your choice as well as all standard member benefits.
“Also on sale from today are our special NSW Warrior and QLD Warrior memberships which were hugely popular this year.
“Other region-specific memberships could be launched but that will depend on our draw when it’s released later in the year.”
Benefits included in 2016 membership packs are:
- New membership scarf
- Bumper sticker
- Lapel pin
- Member card
- Discount on Vodafone Warriors merchandise
- Member-exclusive price on jerseys of $150 instead of $185 (RRP)
- Members-first first communication on team announcements and other major releases
- Invitations to exclusive meet-the-team events throughout the year
Felgate said the cheapest package available was the new scarf membership.
“It’s great value for fans who just want to support their team,” he said.
“For just $30 the package includes a 2016 membership scarf and lanyard, discounts on official Vodafone Warriors merchandise, a 10 per cent discount on tickets to regular season Vodafone Warriors home games and special Vodafone Warriors members-only merchandise.”
The membership revamp includes the creation of new platinum covered and uncovered categories focused on bays around halfway in the upper East and West Stands (platinum covered) and around the tunnels in the lower East and West Stands (platinum uncovered).
A full review of the membership structure had identified inequities in pricing which have been remedied in the 2016 programme.
“It clearly isn’t fair asking members to pay the same price to sit and watch from the try line as those watching from halfway around the tunnels in the East and West Stands,” said Felgate.
“The seats near the tunnels are the most sought-after and highly-valued in the stadium. By creating a new platinum uncovered category we’re differentiating between these premium seats and those on the wings.”
Felgate said most categories had come down in price – some significantly – while some had remained the same.
“Becoming a member provides fans with the cheapest price and it also allows them to secure their seats for the season,” he said.
“We’d certainly encourage everyone to take the opportunity of becoming a member. It’s the best way for fans to make the Vodafone Warriors your team.”
