Memberships 2020/21

Recommended Posts

[placeholder for prices and deets once available]
 

Thought I’d get in early... Has anyone heard anything, informal or otherwise, from the club about memberships for the coming season? I don’t expect anything will be settled any time soon but even advice to that effect would be useful, if just so people are aware of when the club might launch its annual strike on our credit cards.

Email arrived tonight. Membership renewals to open on 1 October. 10% discount off last season’s price, so $300 for my black category seat.

TLDR? It’s time to decide - renew or not to renew.

See previous post for the correct mode. Don't be fooled into thinking that the club will pay the players if we renew (as least in full)

Does anybody know if one keeps their foundation status if they downgrade to a non-ticketed or part-season membership and show up on the day to the games one can?

I would contact the club, between members pissed off at the clubs incompetence & those who would have lost jobs and struggling through the rona recession, there might be a few wondering the same.

2 weeks notice for renewal seems a bit short, considering no one even knows what the makeup of the league will be next season, nor when it starts. They obviously want to get their financials in order for this FY (or even the 2021 calendar year), but something just feels off about all this.

Our memberships don't pay the wages of the players. Usually the broadcast deal covered that and now with that reduced, there are issues there. Also the whole PFA/CBA negotiations happening.

I didn't expect a price rise, and the discount is welcomed, but when the players aren't getting paid and there is so much in the air atm surrounding the league, it just seems mistimed.

Yep we don’t know even know if the season will start this year or next, seems a bit early to start collecting rego

I let my auto renewal do it’s thing. My membership costs bugger all so no real fuss to me. If I was in a higher seating category it would be a different story...

I still think we should’ve gone with the Victory system a one-off base rate then purchasing a ticket for each game (at a significant reduction to general public prices). Given the uncertainty around season kick off and potentially ongoing crowd number limitations it makes particular sense.

I too feel that the whole process happened way too prematurely.

I think the reason they’ve done this is because we have a different situation to Victoria. Under current regulations, WSW would be able to fit all of its members in to games but there is a different question altogether whether all those members feel confident about attending games.

I look forward to seeing what they come out with in a couple of weeks time.

they have added some new good things about the membership mostly because they want people to keep going to matches but shows more effort than i expected from them

There’s also a long term approach to their strategy as a means of preventing false “sell outs” at aami park when only half the capacity is actually in attendance. Over the next 5-10 years depending on the success of the aleague/wsw it’s a valid strategy that we will need to potentially look at employing.

Did anyone else receive an email from the club re: renewing memberships when they haven't renewed? Just received one thanking me for renewing (and that membership pack will be sent out) when I haven't! Checked my bank details and nothing has been debited. It's a generic email that was sent to all members so may just be an error on the mailing list, but still curious.

I feel a little ripped off in terms of venting some false outrage - I only received the correct email advising that membership sales would be open soon (one that acknowledged I’m based interstate in the ACT, too), not a mistaken email suggesting I had already renewed and a pack is on its way ☹️.

 

Anyway, I decided not to renew. Not worth it based on the team’s performances over most of the club’s life and the antics of the club over recent years. I may revisit my decision a few rounds into the season, but that’s unlikely. That all said (long sentence alert), the membership team seem to be doing the best they can in the current situation, so I really can’t fault the club staff on the frontline, no matter the decisions made by those higher up the chain to empty as many fans’ wallets as possible before coming out with alternative arrangements in light of the pandemic.
