Raiders Become 2nd NRL Club To Break Membership Records

The Canberra Raiders have set a new membership record for the fourth year in a row and become the 2nd NRL club in as many days to hit a new milestone, with Parramatta also registering the highest membership base in the Club’s history.

While breaking through the 20,000-member mark for the second consecutive season, the Raiders 2019 membership tally now sits at 20,062, eclipsing last season’s mark of 20,054.

Raiders CEO, Don Furner, said the club was proud to have set a new benchmark for club membership in 2019 and the higher membership numbers had helped to attract larger crowds at Raiders home matches this season.

“To set another membership record is another sign of the growing success of our club both on and off the field,” Furner said.

“Not only are the players performing well on the field, but they’re also engaging actively in the community which is attracting new members to the club.

“We’ve seen an increase in match day attendances this year as well, which is vital to the ongoing success of the club.

“Having more members is helping us to achieve this increase.”

The Raiders are currently averaging over 14,000 for matches at GIO Stadium this season, with four home matches remaining against the Tigers, Roosters, Sea Eagles and Warriors.
