Richmond has broken its membership record for the fifth consecutive year, breaking through the 70,000 barrier for the first time.
The Club ticked over the milestone late yesterday afternoon, eclipsing last year’s final tally of 66,000.
“The support our members provide us is simply amazing,” said Richmond CEO Brendon Gale.
“We can never question their loyalty, passion and commitment, both on match-day as they fill the stadiums, and in their support of our off-field endeavours.
“Without their support, we simply could not operate to the level that allows us to be competitive in this competition.
“We pride ourselves on making our members’ experience as fulfilling as possible, and we are determined to repay their faith with on-field success in the years to come.”
Richmond became just the third Club in AFL/VFL history to break through the 60,000 member barrier, in 2013.
To recognise the commitment from all our members, we have a special offer for you. Stay tuned, as further details will be sent via email shortly.
