Craig Anderson from Buff Point, NSW has been the lucky Member to Prove his Passion and crack our 10,000 mark for 2012 in record time for the Club.
Craig visited Redfern Oval this morning, and was congratulated by Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire with a giant Rabbitohs Membership card and the first exclusive 2012 Rabbitohs Membership Hat.
Along with Craig, 664 new and 9339 existing Members of our great Club have Proved their Passion and shown their ongoing support and patronage by joining us as we strive to reach our milestones of 13,250 Ticketed Members and in total 22,000 Members.
The Red & Green Family is growing at a rate of 30% ahead of this time last year, which puts the Club in a great position to maintain our No.1 Membership status in the NRL.
When asked how he felt about being the Club’s 10,000th Member, Craid said ‘It’s awesome! The chance to meet the new coach and given I have had 50 years of Souths makes it more special.’
Craig is a Silver Member of the Club, having first joined in 2006 and has a Reserved seat at all Rabbitohs Home Games. Having been a Rabbitohs supporter for over 50 years, Craig joined the Club ‘to support the team I follow to help ensure their survival.’ His earliest memory of the Rabbitohs was ‘playing football at the hill in Redfern Oval when I was five, and supporting Souths at the SCG in the old Sheridan Stand.
Craig will also be attending the annual Return to Redfern match in 2012, where the Rabbitohs will face off against the Warrington Wolves on 28 January 2012. ‘I have been every year.’ Craig explains, ‘It reminds me of my childhood running’s onto the ground at full time as a kid!’
If you know of any Rabbitohs fans that are yet to prove their passion and become a Member of the Rabbitohs, why not encourage them to become part of the Rabbitohs family and in turn register yourself as one of the Club’s top Rabbit Hunters.
All you need to do is make sure your friends and family include your Membership number on their Membership form when they are signing up for a new Ticketed Membership and you will be rewarded!
