60,000 and counting

60,000 and counting Sydney Swans have welcomed 60,000 members for the first time in the Club's history.

The Sydney Swans have welcomed 60,000 members for the first time in the Club’s history, ploughing on to 60,039 ahead of a clash with Fremantle at the SCG on Saturday.

The total stands in stark contrast to the 2000 members the Swans had when South Melbourne made Sydney home in 1982.

Sydney Swans Chief Executive and Managing Director Andrew Ireland said the club is thrilled to have reached the milestone.

“To have 60,000 members on board is such a significant achievement for our Club and shows just how large the red and white family has become,” Ireland said.

“I’ve got no doubt that Sydney Swans members and supporters are the most passionate and vocal in the league.

“We can’t thank all of our members enough for their unwavering loyalty and support. There’s nothing better than seeing and hearing our members in full voice whether we’re at home or on the road.”

The milestone moment marks the seventh consecutive year the Swans have posted a new membership record – and Sydney has celebrated the latest breakthrough with a touch of creative genius.

Midfielder Zak Jones, who is an eager graffiti artist off the field, has thanked Swans members on behalf of all players, coaches, support staff and the Board through a large-scale canvas painting.

The artwork will be displayed for the remainder of the season.

Ireland thanked Jones for his strong show of support and said the Swans had their eyes set on achieving greater heights.

“Well done to Zak Jones for taking the time to personally thank and show his appreciation for all 60,000 members with his artwork,” Ireland said.

“We look forward to continuing to grow and welcome more members to our Sydney Swans family – it’s not too late to join the team and be part of our 2018 journey.”
