Hyundai A-League Champions Sydney FC have set a new record for Memberships for the fifth time in six seasons which has cemented the club as one of the fastest growing sporting franchises in Australia.
The Sky Blues surpassed their 2015/16 record of 13,154 this morning, with the number set to rise even further over this season.
The club’s target is 15,000 Memberships which would result in a 20 per cent increase year on year, while the current figures are more than double (119%) the number achieved six seasons ago (2011/12).
Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend is keen to continue the growth.
“Our Members are the heartbeat of our club and are a major part of the Sky Blue family,” he said.
“To see the momentum they have helped build in the last six years is fabulous.
“Our aim is to reach new levels so to break our all-time Membership record this early is excellent news.
“There is a lot more growth and progress ahead but this is a fantastic step forward.”
The recent Championship success and a targeted strategy has helped the Sky Blues surpass their previous record, including an increase in Junior Memberships which are already five per cent ahead of last year’s total.
Sydney FC meet Wellington Phoenix this Sunday in their first home game of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season followed by a huge Sydney Derby clash at Allianz Stadium six days later.
“It’s a great start to the season for the club, with three home games in quick succession,” continued Townsend.
“Our pre-match Championship celebration event this Sunday will honour the achievements of our club over the last 12 seasons, while the Sydney Derby next Saturday night has the potential for a real top of the table thriller.
“We also have a second successive FFA Cup Final to look forward to next month so there are exciting times ahead.”
The club has also already set a new record for Westfield W-League Memberships despite the new season being over two weeks away.
