Wanderers Members Committee News

Recommended Posts

When I got to do some stuff with the team whilst at uni, we used to go and help out the day before ACL match days when they’d have a training run at the old parra stadium. 

On a few occasions, the WSW boys would turn up and the parra boys left the change rooms looking like absolute **** despite the agreement being that they’d be cleared out by a particular time/day. One such occasion they left mud and tape and crap all over the floor and the rep from the Eels/leagues club was just an arse hole about the whole thing and from memory it took about an hour before the rooms were even accessible.

Ed: Any news from the meeting? I see you’ve answered Paul’s question (thank you :good:) but any other news from the meeting? Anything else interesting raised?

As meetings go, this one was light on agenda/discussion items. Matters discussed in addition to my previous post were:

First was match days feedback on anything and everything. Overall very happy with everything with specific positive mention of:

- food affordable and good selection

- membership pack, with specific mention of the clear bags which assist with entry via security checks

- much better experience(s) with security and police (sub note - problems at away venues were mentioned as well and the Club continues to work on getting improvements)

- game day activities. Club asked for additional suggestions, several were made and accepted with enthusiasm

- e tickets for entry

Negatives and responses were:

- slow and inadequate service at tea/coffee outlets - the Club will report this to the venue operators for improvement

- music too loud for some members - system has default settings based on crowd size, these can be altered, will be referred for possible adjustment 

Feedback on Membership and fan engagement:

- good initiatives with events and competitions

- would like more fan interaction with half time entertainment 

- good fan and player video content

- great discount for holiday clinics 

Premium membership and add ons:

- less value for money this year

- prefer a cheaper package like last year's Gold Membership add on

- Club pointed out they more than welcome requests for one off deals for experiences and upgrades such as Xmas parties, end of year, birthday parties. They are keen on this. Anyone interested just get in touch to work something out. (Maybe just a one off upgrade for a single match with access to players etc for a family or whatever.)

- Members Bar liked (but seems very few at the meeting have used it)

- pre match entertainment for juniors on the concourse raised. Agreed and will implement but there are safety concerns to deal with. A couple of location possibilities were mentioned and will be looked at. 

Other

- open gates earlier for double headers so active can set up - tried/looked at just 15 minutes earlier but additional cost is prohibitive at Bankwest. But doable at Marconi for other W League matches

- correlating with RBB for active support for W League derbies -  Club will reach out but it is a fan initiative

- Club will invite juniors to learn simple banner making during the holiday period

- How can we committee members do more than just attend meetings? Club will invite us to do a bit at member events. (And since then we are invitec to do so at Xmas party - I have acepted)

- Club helped with RBB fund raising for fire victims, can more be done? Club has raised funds for charities in the past and will in future. Something is planned for next home match.

Also, as at the  previous meetings, JT was triggered by one or more committee members into giving an impassioned rant about a variety of matters, in the same vein as many on this forum.

Who’d thought that a bunch of Thugby league players can’t clean up after themselves and treat our team like sh1t

Seeing as it's certainly not with on-field results, what are Wanderers doing to reduce the number of fans changing over to supporting (what may be the more convenient and local option for people) Macarthur FC??  And / or walking away from the club / game entirely??

I’m happy to see more of the weak and uncommitted piss off. 
as long as Mack runs the form we have somewhere to vent 

I haven’t even hit proper anger yet. 
I’ve seen that yank **** **** arsenal over for 15 years 

3.5 years is like mild foreplay for me, the pounding is still long away 😂

I have no interest in looking at another team or walking away. But it would be nice to see some commitment from the club/team/players to turn the situation around. I am not seeing that at the moment.

Is this a football club or an insurance policy? The club shouldn’t have to do anything to keep its fans from going and supporting another one. If people want to jump ship then see ya later...

I’m no marketing person, but beyond what they are doing not sure what they can or even should do.

it all comes from on-field performance people like to see a team win, compete in finals, beat their derby rivals etc. 

Granted people come for the atmosphere but that to a large degree comes with decent footy too 

of course we will still be there every other week

If people want to support Macarthur, go for it. It's up to the club to make it the best it can be and let everything else fall as they may. Competition is good and if we don't lift, we can fold.

Sorry - further to my above post, I personally don’t care. 
But clearly the club do, seeing as they were so adamant on delaying Macarthur’s entry into the A-League by a season. 🤷‍♀️

I think they thought we would win games at the moment another season wasted
