Melbourne Storm charging into March
Melbourne Storm normally make their charge in September, now they are making a historic push in February and players and officials couldn’t be happier.
Breaking records is nothing new for the club, but even they are surprised at the rate of memberships being taken up by fans.
The Storm are averaging 220 memberships per day since they went on sale only 19 days ago, and currently boast 4217 members.
While the club is in England chasing World Club Championship glory, finishing touches are being added to their state-of-the-art new home ground, Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.
The new ground will ensure a world class facility for players, members and sponsors alike.
The Storm are pleased by the amount of new people joining the club for 2010, with over 1,100 new Members already pledged their loyalty to the Storm.
Storm halfback Cooper Cronk says the club is well placed heading into their title defence.
“Coming off the Premiership and heading into the new stadium, its really great to see all the members getting behind us for 2010,” Cronk said.
