On the back of achieving the NRL’s biggest year-on-year membership increase, the Vodafone Warriors have today reached out to their fan base by launching an innovative New Recruit membership.
The special feature of the offer, which targets supporters who haven’t been members before, is an option of committing for the full season or cancelling after the first three home games at no further cost.
The launch follows the Vodafone Warriors posting a 53 per cent membership increase on the same period last year, climbing from 8305 members in January 2018 to 12,713 to date this year.
“We’re delighted with the way our loyal members signed up early and were rewarded by securing the best seats at the best price of just $199.00,” said Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George.
“But our goal is always to grow our membership base further and do everything we can to fill our house. There’s nothing like a game day at a packed Mount Smart Stadium.
“So now for this month only we’re calling on fans to make their membership debut in what is our landmark 25th season.
“We’re banking on all New Recruit members loving the total experience at Mount Smart Stadium and staying for the full season but, if they’re not sold on it after the first three home games, they can cancel their membership and walk away. No questions asked.”
New Recruit members pay a $22.00 joining fee and 25 $7.92 payments for the season, a total cost on $220.00. Those opting out after the first three games at Mount Smart Stadium pay the joining fee and eight $7.92 weekly payments through until April 19.
The first three home games at Mount Smart Stadium are against Canterbury-Bankstown on Saturday, March 16 (5.00pm), Gold Coast on Friday, April 5 (8.00pm) and North Queensland on Saturday, April 20 (7.30pm).
