    Western Sydney Wanderers Membership Details


    mack
    • Western Sydney Wanderers 2012/13 memberships will launch tomorrow at 1pm AEST. The club has released full details of costs and seat allocations.

       

      Western Sydney Wanderers have released four blocks of seating for purchase as well as a non-ticket club membership.

       

      They cover the 13 Western Sydney Wanderers home games to be played at Parramatta Stadium. It does not include the Campbelltown Stadium regional round match as that is controlled by the FFA and is not considered a Wanderers home match.

       

      Red Tier - This is the top level membership equivalent to the platinum and gold memberships of other clubs. It comprises seating in the Western Stand. Some of the seating is upper deck goal line level and may be equivalent to the Silver seating of some clubs. Prices are:

      Adult - $312 ($24 per match)

      Concession - $175 ($13.50 per match)

      Family - $799 ($61.50 per match)

       

      Black Tier - This second level membership is equivalent to the silver membership of other clubs. It comprises goal line seating in the Western Stand, as well as central and upper deck seating in the Eastern Stand. Some of this seating may be equivalent to the Bronze seating of some clubs. Prices are:

      Adult - $240 ($18.50 per match)

      Concession - $145 ($11.15 per match)

      Family - $625 ($48.00 per match)

       

      White Tier - This is a basic level membership. It includes the South Terrace, with the Non-Alcohol Bays 78 and 79, goal line level seating in the Eastern Stand, and corner seating in the North Terrace. Prices are:

      Adult - $195 ($15 per match)

      Concession - $95 ($7.50 per match)

      Family - $390 ($30 per match)

       

      Red & Black Bloc - This is the Home Supporter End located in the North Terrace. Prices are:

      Adult - $195 ($15 per match)

      Concession - $95 ($7.50 per match)

      Family - No family membership is available for this section.

       

      A non-ticketed supporter membership is available for $80 adult, $50 concession and $160 for a family.

       

      Benefits for becoming a member include:

      An effective 25% discount on retail ticket prices - Foundation Number Membership Cap - Free Shuttle Bus service from Parramatta Station to Parramatta Stadium - A white tier family membership includes two free junior memberships - Free Entry to all Youth League and Women's League home matches - Minimum 10% discount on all Wanderers FC merchandise on match days and in the online store - Minimum 10% discount on all food and beverages at Parramatta stadium - Minimum 10% discount on additional match day tickets - Exclusive Club Partnership offers including NRMA insurance and Nike - Priority booking for A-League Final Series matches.

       

      The memberships will launch tomorrow on the 1st of August at 1pm AEST.

       

      For Opinion and Analysis please click through to the full article.

    Analysis:

    A potential omission was the failure to include specific Junior memberships across all the seating tiers however it is likely that concession pricing will apply to junior members.

     

    In terms of benefits and discounts there is much similarity comparing Wanderers with Sydney FC:

    * Sydney FC have their newly implemented Free Public Transport, while Wanderers have the shuttle bus from Parramatta Station to the Stadium.

    * Each club have discounts with their respective kit sponsors. They both have the same discount on additional match day tickets.

    * Each club offers free entry to W-League and Youth League matches.

    * Each club will have sponsor specific discounts, the extent of their value will depend on what use each person can make of them.

     

    The only major difference is the free public transport to Sydney FC matches. I'm still not convinced this is going to be a major part of the decision making process for most members. The cost to the club of providing this is part of each Sydney FC membership and is paid regardless of if a member actually uses public transport or not. Parramatta is also a much more viable location for driving to the stadium, with several large parking stations in the area as well as large residential areas that people can park in for free. The Shuttle Bus is a nice addition especially for those who are coming late to the station who want to get to the match asap.

     

    Sydney FC have two sets of costs. The first is for "Loyalty" members who renew their membership before the end of August. The second is for new or lapsed memberships and is termed "Standard". I will compare the pricing for the Adult and Family tickets only.

     

    Top Tier:

    Sydney FC have two top-tier levels (Platinum Plus and Platinum). Wanderers has one (Red).

     

    Sydney FC are more expensive despite the loyalty discount. Their costs are $350 (Adult) and $895 (Family) for a loyalty bonus, and $395 (Adult) and $995 (Family) for standard pricing. The Wanderers costs are $312 (Adult) and $799 (Family).

     

    The Wanderers adult pricing at $312 is $83 cheaper than the standard pricing and $38 cheaper than the loyalty pricing.

     

    A Wanderers Family membership at $799 is $196 cheaper than Sydney FC's standard pricing and $96 cheaper than Sydney FC's loyalty pricing.

     

    Second Tier:

    Sydney FC have a Silver Tier while Wanderers has the Black Tier. Again I will compare only Adult and Family pricing.

     

    Sydney FC price their Silver membership at $280 (Adult) and $695 (Family) with the loyalty bonus and $320 (Adult) and $785 (Family) without the loyalty bonus. Wanderers costs $240 for an adult and $625 for a family.

     

    Western Sydney Wanderers Adult pricing of $240 is $40 cheaper than Sydney FC's loyalty pricing and $80 cheaper than Sydney FC's standard pricing.

     

    For families, the Wanderers pricing of $625 is $70 cheaper than the Sydney FC loyalty pricing and $160 cheaper than the Standard Sydney FC family pricing.

     

    Basic and Home End Membership Tier:

    Sydney FC have a Bronze Tier and a Home End tier, with slightly lower prices for the Bronze tier. Wanderers have differentiated the Home End with their White Tier in name but not costing. As most of the members on this site will be comparing the Home Ends, I will do so as well. There are no family membership so the only tickets available in them are for Adults.

     

    Sydney FC's Home End costs $175 with the loyalty bonus and $200 without it.

     

    Wanderers Red & Black Bloc end costs $195. This is $20 more expensive than the Sydney FC home end Loyalty bonus and $5 less than the Sydney FC non-loyalty bonus cost.

     

    Opinion:

    There is a clear attempt by Sydney FC to hold onto the supporter base by offering major discounts for existing supporters. Despite this the Wanderers have comprehensively out priced their inner city counterparts even accounting for the Sydney FC loyalty bonus.

     

    In the 5 ticket types examined (The Adult and Family memberships for the Top Tier, Second Tier and Home End), only 1 set of tickets was more expensive to get from the Wanderers. This was the Adult Home End ticket price and that was only for the Loyalty pricing that previous members of Sydney FC receive. Without the loyalty pricing the Red & Black Bloc is $5 cheaper than the Sydney FC Home End.

     

    For people in the Home End it is unlikely that the $20 or $5 difference in costs will make one scrap of difference in their decision of what team to support. Many will have already decided to stay with Sydney FC or join Wanderers if this club better represents themselves or their area.

     

    These costings are in line with my predicted costs for memberships and is on the lower side of that prediction. It doesn't not excessively discount the club and reduce the perceived value of the membership, nor is it overly expensive in an attempt to create artificial scarcity. I congratulate the club on their first ever membership drive and I hope we can have at least 5,000 members by the time the season launches.

     

    If these are the final membership seating blocks then there is potential in the future for the club to expand the ticket types to offer premium seating locations for a premium price. The central bays on the half-way line could easily be split into their own tiers in the same way that Sydney FC have their own Platinum seating allocation. For the first year however the club has gone for simplicity in the ticketing. Get in quick on the Red and Black tiers if you want the best seats in the house.

     

    I'll be buying my Red & Black Bloc membership at 1pm tomorrow. What membership/s are you looking to buy?

    RBB.

     

    BTW, did I read it correctly that only 2 bays of the Sth End are alcohol free. Does this mean the away supporters will be sitting amongst families?

    Pretty sure there is a free shuttle from the station to the stadium everyday for everyone but nice of them to package this up as an initiative of theirs in response to SYD FC's free public transport deal...

     

    But I am stoked! Wooo

    It's $195 for adults and $95 for concession tickets. There's no way they'll know if you're a member of the RBB but I'd imagine the rest of the group would find a way to 'persuade' people there to either support the team or go somewhere else.

     

    Anyone know if the White seats are General Admission?

     

    That's the biggest question for me. Which, if any of the sections are general admission and which have an allocated seat for the season.

    It won't happen but it'd be awesome if they did the actual seats that way with red and black rows. It'd look pretty cool until banana starts stealing seats.

    id imagine that bays 70 and possibly 69 would be aquired by sydney fc for the derby as they would have around 1,000 to bring to the derby.

    Ok get you flames ready. I'm buying a white family membership in bay 62. Why? That's easy I have a wife and a 6 week old baby who will also be members. That being said I'm sure I can find room in the RBB to stand and sing once they're seated :)

    Sorry, didn't notice the brown away supporters bay. Question answered.

    BTW, you'd have to assume that white is G/A.

    $95 for a GA membership is amazing value. I'll be purchasing my ticket for the RBB tomorrow though. I was expecting about $350 (not sure why, when 11 games @ $25 each would only be $275). But $195 is also outstanding, and calling it the red and Black Bloc on the official seating map is freakin wicked.

     

    I'm assuming that even if they allocate me row 6 seat 24 or whatever, the RBB will just tend to mingle and move around and what not?

     

    edit: I buggered that up. Its not 95 bucks for GA, its 195, but thats fine. Whats the $80 'supporter' membership? Is that just all the perks of advanced access to tickets, etc. but you dont actually get a seat in the stadium and have to purchase one for each game? Assuming some merch comes with this

    This is so bloody impressive.

     

    How many members do you guys reckon WSW will get? Would love to see 5,000+

    Honestly I cant see us getting less than 8000. But i think we will have more than 10000

     

    A third of SFC members will come here. And there croweds were around 12-15000 so i assume about 4-5 thousand would swing WSW way.

    Just a quick question, and I'm not trying to be jerk Mack cause it looks like you put a lot of effort into what you wrote. Do we really care what Smurf's are doin and do we really need to compare the pricing with us. If people are going to sign a membership with us over FC just cause it's cheaper they can get farked IMO. We want supporters and members that love the club and want to be members no matter what.

    Agree with your sentiments though I think Mack has listed it just to highlight how awesome the club has done. I was buying either way but impressed the bank account isn't going to cop as much of a pounding.

    Make sure you can get to the RBB from bay 62.

     

    I thought the northern end was pretty well fenced off at both sides so you can't walk around to either the western or eastern sides

    What is the 'supporter' membership for $80 for an adult ticket?

    It's prob all the perks, but without entry to the games. Common for interstate fans in AFL, and league I'm guessing. That way people can still be part of the club without being able to go to the games.

     

    Anyone know anything about Corporate memberships/boxes? Not for me!!!

    • Most such pardons would be less controversial than the one handed to Flynn. However, among those campaigning for a pardon is Joseph Maldonado-Passage. Better known as Joe Exotic, the zookeeper subject of hit Netflix documentary Tiger King, he received a 22-year sentence for trying to hire a hitman to kill a rival. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/26/trump-pardon-michael-flynn-rick-gates Free the Tiger King!!
    • Wow they are at the point of arrogance that they can just tell people they use public money to shore up votes and get away with it https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/berejiklian-backs-away-from-icac-funding-boost-but-not-pork-barrelling-20201126-p56ic4.html  
    • She joined Blacktown Spartans during the NPL season and now the reports are that WSW and Victory have made offers as well as overseas clubs but that she would prefer to stay in Australia. I believe she would be back to Sydney now after participating in the FFA's training camp that was held in Adelaide this past week. I would suspect she'll have to make a decision pretty shortly about which club to join with the season a month away. Roberts also joined the Spartans after the season, we might have decided not to retain her again after 4 seasons with us, she only played 3 games last year. Holloway suffering an ACL injury at age 36 may have forced her into retirement and even if she didn't, signing her again would be a really risky choice for the club.
