For North and South End members to keep their spot in the active area for 2017/2018, they must renew their membership by Friday evening.
With Melbourne Victory’s membership tally at almost 19,000 already, momentum is building towards what will be a busy campaign, featuring the Westfield FFA Cup, Hyundai A-League and AFC Champions League.
The following communication has been sent out to unrenewed North End members:
Following on from the communications issued when we distributed renewal forms in June, we would like to provide an update on North End matters.
We have recently undertaken several discussions with European clubs, namely Celtic FC and Borussia Dortmund, to better understand their staffing, safety and match day models. Both Celtic and Dortmund have kindly shared many insights and it is clear that there are a range of similarities with ourselves. Conversations will continue, with the intent to identify opportunities to enhance and grow our active supporter experience.
In addition, we have undertaken numerous meetings with members who have expressed an interest in shaping future plans for the North End and the progress to date has been positive. It’s been particularly pleasing that these meetings have prompted more members to register their interest in advancing the North End. We have been made aware of further discussions taking place amongst existing North End members regarding:
- reinvigorating the North End;
- the set-up of the area for 2017/18; and
- engagement of other North End members.
We will continue to share updates on this and other operational matters in the build up to the season.
Membership sales in the North End area for 2017/18 are very strong across all bays, with a positive response from new members. North End renewal cut-off is this Friday August 11, so please ensure you renew on or prior to this date, as we intend to distribute member packs in September.
