    More interested to know if we will have as many members as NM, WB, if we ever sink near the bottom for 5 years

    Someone in the media said that getting GAJ would equate to an extra 15k of members. Be interesting to see if that comes true. 39k already looks like that may well be true. I think we only had 42k say three of four years ago.

    We've come such a long long way. Imagine over 15 years ago thinking we would be competing with a club like Carlton with membership numbers.

    The value of GAJ + Danger will see us get to 60K members in 2018

    We are still a limited club in terms of potential support unlike the 9 other Melbourne teams. Why would some randoms just choose Geelong etc.

    Dunno about that any more since all games are now on T.V.
    Kids jump on a winning team, I even know a few Brissy Lions fans my age who jumped on during their 3peat.
    We have serious star power and I would expect that we'll be on FTA T.V plenty this year.
    I feel for teams like Norf, the way the fixture and T.V games are skewed makes it really hard for some clubs to attract new supporters.

    Those people are usually the first to renew the next year though cause they're passionate.
    Richmond have been near the top of membership numbers for years and they completely lose their shit every year (except this one)

    They have one more paid up member today.
    I am a bit lighter in the pocket though.

    Hopefully more than that. I would hope 63k minimum to 68k.

    Just looked in the 2017 membership thread. On 6/12/16 we were just over 35000 members.

    So tracking along well then. Granted most of those (inc mine) are automatic rollover memberships but the Gaz signing alone should enable the club to break a record next year.

    While I appreciate the reasoning behind the automatic rollover system, I'm not a fan of there not being a one year option with online renewals, must say.

    This.
    I opted out of auto renewal(phonecall and email) i think end of 2015 ? season.... and theyve tried to take money out in both years since. I only realised this year because i got an email from club saying my auto renewal had been declined. Because i had changed Banks.
    The cynical part of me sorta thinks the Club..the membership side at least.. is making some 'oversights' in this area that are benefitting themselves.
    They will get my $ every year anyway.

    Reckon we will hit 60k members in 2018, which is massive for Geelong when you think about where we were only 8-9 years ago, I think we were around the 30-35k mark.

    Just looking at our finishing positions, with the exception of 2015, 2006, 2003, 2002 and 2001, we’ve pretty much been right up there since the turn of the century.
