I’m still holding out...and the 2018 training range is doing nothing to entice me back!

Be strong!

Due to a combination of our recruitment, our management and a bit of travel planned for next year I am...

Seriously considering dropping my two tickets (Gold) which cost me just over $500 total

And just getting the $30 membership and buying tickets at 10% off for the games I can attend next year

What membership packages do you get? The $59 for 5 games also seems like a bargain.

Looks like the poor results from the team over the last few years has finally hit their membership for 2018.

Currently the membership is 6,872, second to bottom. Titans are at the bottom on 4,563.

At this stage last year it was 10,367.

Good- hope they finally see they can’t take their loyal fans for granted when it starts hitting them financially

Exactly this I feel. Previous years the Warriors have sucked at least the wins they did get were exciting and full off flair. Last year was arguably the most boring one ever. Sure doesn't fit the 'Most Entertaining Team' mantra that formed Doyles top 5 goals for the team in 2016.

I still haven't renewed but will do so as soon as I get the funds. Too many other things that I've deemed more important have occupied my leisure money...

I took the away membership just for the member pack to add to the collection in the mancave.

Foolish me

East Stand

6 losing seasons and this would be a pretty common result in world sport.

While the numbers are obviously disappointing, I can’t see this making any material difference in crowd numbers early on in the season at least. The average crowd number will hold up to around the same numbers.

Of course if the team start winning, crowds will increase and the club will pocket more money from the sale of individual price tickets. Membership prices are quite below individual tickets on average and it wouldn’t take much for those to balance out.

11 home games being on a Friday or Saturday night is also beneficial to the club, this time slot generally works better for crowd numbers and atmosphere than the slew of 5pm/6pm Sunday afternoon kickoffs we have had in recent seasons.

Interestingly enough is anybody else on here starting to get surveys (asking you usual sort of shit like your age, height, weight, high school you went to, level of education, current employer, do you scream your own name when you cum, indeed I do sir, etc.) sent to their email address from club wanting you as a member to fill it in ? I just got one today in my inbox and what interesting about that is from my perspective when you start to see things like that especially from professional sporting organisation like NZ Warriors, it's usually to me a sign of sports team in damage control looking for ways from fans to suspend the chaos. I wonder if sudden drop off members numbers this season has something to do about it or maybe there is something else happening this year that they're not telling us ... o_O

When sent by a company it is usually couched in language to get a desired answer so they can tell the board it isn't as bad as it looks...which means it probably is or even worse.

League: Warriors among NRL clubs struggling for membership as season approaches



Are New Zealanders still keeping the faith?

Despite an off-season recruitment drive and some quality signings, the Warriors have not done enough to entice fans to sign up for club membership.

The New Zealand franchise had the second-lowest membership count to end the month, down some 4000 members from the same time last year.

The Warriors (8305) were above only the Gold Coast Titans (5335).

At the same time in 2017, the Warriors had the sixth-highest number with 12,074, but have seen a 31 per cent drop in 2018.

The lack of members is a developing trend for the Warriors. After a huge spike from 10,962 at the end of 2015 to 18,350 in 2016, numbers dropped off in the 2017 season.

The pre-season membership drive tends to account for a large chunk of the final number. In 2017, the Warriors had 12,074 members in January, and finished the season with 17,786. The drop off in numbers saw them fall from having the seventh most members in 2016 to the 10th most the year later.

The Warriors go into the 2018 season looking to turn around their poor results over the best part of the last decade.

Since reaching the Grand Final in 2011, the Warriors have failed to qualify for the playoffs. Their best result of the past seven seasons was a ninth-placed finish in 2014.

The side have cleaned house between the 2011 season and now. Just two players who took in the match-day squad for the 2011 Grand Final remain in the squad heading into their 2018 campaign - halfback Shaun Johnson and lock Simon Mannering.

For 2018, they've brought in a number of players with big-game experience as they look to right the ship.

Five-eighth Blake Green comes into the side with a Super League title and an NRL runner-up medal to his name. He's joined by Kiwi forward duo Adam Blair and Tohu Harris who have both won NRL titles with the Melbourne Storm - Blair in 2009, though that title was later stripped due to salary cap breaches, and Harris in 2017.

The NRL season gets underway on March 8, with the Warriors beginning their campaign on March 10 away to the South Sydney Rabbitohs - who have consistently been one of the league leaders in membership numbers over the past few years.

Nope. But I do find it interesting that NZ Herald who is one of NZ Warriors major sponsors are finally admitting that there's a problem ...

Usually when a paper sponsors a sports team and it isn't doing so good they generally try to ignore it or pretend that isn't happening.

Finally renewed. Got the renewal price so happy with that. Looking forward to being back at Mt Smart and especially looking forward to the Round 14 game against Manly in Christchurch...
