The Tiger Army is officially 90,023 members strong, as the Richmond Football Club today announced it has achieved the extraordinary membership milestone.

The AFL Club membership record eclipses the Tigers’ 2017 membership total of 75,777, making it the eighth consecutive year that Richmond has achieved record membership.

With over 20,000 new Richmond members signing up, Richmond CEO, Brendon Gale said he was both thrilled and surprised to be making the membership announcement so early in the season.

“We cannot thank our loyal members enough for the role they play in supporting our football club, their commitment means that we can continue to thrive and win both on and off the field,” he said.

“Our members are in every corner of Australia and support us wherever we travel. It’s both very humbling and very special to know that the Tiger Army is now 90,000 members strong.”

The Tiger Army has been loud and proud in Richmond’s first two home games for season 2018, with 90,151 fans attending the season opener against Carlton, and 70,701 at Sunday’s clash with Hawthorn - the highest home-and-away crowd ever between the two clubs.

The Club is currently investing in additional resources to maintain excellent member service levels and communication, and next week will launch new member reward and recognition programs for all membership levels based on years of service.

“We’ve been on an amazing journey as a football club, it’s important that our members continue to feel connected and engaged with us, no matter where they live, or how many games they can attend,” Gale said.

Richmond will invite its 90,000 members to a special event at the Swinburne Centre, Punt Road Oval before its Round 7 match v Fremantle on Sunday, May 6 to celebrate the milestone membership achievement. More details will be available in the coming weeks.
