At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the club asked Parramatta Eels members to pledge their 2020 memberships. At the time there was no guarantee of receiving anything in return or even if the season would restart.
The club, yesterday sent an email detailing what members who pledge their memberships will receive.
- Their name displayed on the current club training facility wall which will then be moved to the new centre of excellence at Kellyville.
- A free 2021 training shirt with their name and the name of the other pledging members.
- A unique pledge number and electronic certificate.
The club has also announced that for all 2020 members, their 2021 membership prices will be frozen. So whatever you paid this year, provided you keep the same membership, you will pay the same next year.
I think this sounds like a fair deal and as someone who pledged their membership early on it was a pleasant surprise to receive this email. The most reassurring part is the freeze on membership fees given the main worry for many fans was a possible rise in fees to make up for this season.
