Panthers fans envious of this Sunday’s NRL Grand Final between the Canberra Raiders and Sydney Roosters can officially start dreaming of next season with 2020 membership packs now on sale.
While 2019 was a year to forget for Panthers supporters, it’s hoped next year will be a much more fruitful one for members and fans at Panthers Stadium.
Panthers memberships for next season, which went on sale on Wednesday afternoon, appear to offer more variety and value than in previous years.
Full season adult, teen and junior members will receive their choice of an exclusive 2020 Panthers members cap or beanie, plus a members benefits booklet filled with special offers.
VIP members also receive a personalised Panthers members polo, limited edition signed footy, both choice items and full season member pack.
The adult members pack also includes a cooler bag, fixture magnet, keyring, sticker and lanyard, while the teen members pack comes with a portable phone charger, pop socket, fixture magnet, sticker and lanyard.
For the kids, the junior members pack includes a boot bag, plush football, sticker sheet and lanyard, while the club will also bring back their popular baby members pack and pet membership, the latter of which debuted last season.
“We’ve pulled out all stops to ensure being a Panthers member in 2020 will be more rewarding than ever before,” Panthers Head of Membership, Jeremy Tuite said.
“Our new members merchandise is of the highest quality and we’re planning more invite-only events so our members will have ample opportunity to meet and mingle with the players next season.
“While other clubs substantially increase their membership prices every year, we’re proud to continue to offer some of the most affordable membership options in the NRL.”
There has been a slight price increase across the club’s membership options in 2020, with a diamond package, for example, going from $350 per season to $375.
Fans who sign up to a 2020 Panthers membership will once again receive entry to members-only events with the players, access to $10 Panther Bus tickets to away games, discounts on merchandise at the Panthers Shop and pre-sale access to NRL Finals tickets as well as State of Origin matches.
The 2020 NRL Draw is expected to released in November.
