Expectation for the upcoming season has never been higher, especially throughout Sydney, with no less than five clubs already exceeding their 2012 membership figures before a ball has even been kicked.
Last year’s Grand Finalists, the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, have joined the likes of South Sydney, the Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels and Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in beating their respective 2012 figures, with fellow Sydney clubs, the Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers only a few hundred memberships away from joining them.
The cumulative total for 2013 memberships now sits at over 185,000, well up for the same time last year, and showing the code is on track to smash the 200,000 mark over the first month of the season.
With the season now only days away, it is still not too late to become a member of your club! All clubs have packages ranging from a full season to only a handful of games, in a range of price types and categories.
