When a plan gomes together
In comparison, the other Super 14 newbie in 2006 has now stopped taking in new members. Eish no substitute for good planning . Article & Photo from the Official Force Website.
More than 20,000 people have now become members of the Emirates Western Force, reinforcing its position as Australia's biggest club in the Tooheys New Super 14 competition.
And, a recent survey shows the majority of Emirates Western Force members do not have memberships with other professional sporting organisations in WA.
The on-line survey of 4000 members indicates that more than 80% of all respondents were not members of the WACA, West Coast Eagles, Fremantle Dockers, Perth Glory or Perth Wildcats in 2005.
RugbyWA chief executive Peter O'Meara said the results suggested the Emirates Western Force had provided many West Australians with the opportunity to become members of a professional sporting organization for the first time.
"We are not taking fans away from the other codes. By and large, we are catering for a lot of West Australians whose sport of choice is rugby and they have been patiently waiting for the professional game to arrive," he said.
Mr O'Meara said he was delighted with the latest membership count and grateful for the support of the WA public.
He said that with around 270 companies having secured corporate hospitality packages, he expected Subiaco Oval to be buzzing with energy and excitement on game-day.
Mr O'Meara said the first opportunity to see the Emirates Western Force play would be at the trial match against South African team, the Cheetahs, at Subiaco Oval on Saturday 21 January.
Cut-price tickets for the pre-season game against the Cheetahs can be bought through Ticketmaster and will go on sale to members on Monday January 9 and the general public on Thursday January 12.
** Members of the public wanting to become members of the Emirates Western Force for the 2006 season have until the end of January. No further membership applications (other than out-of-town membership applications) will be accepted after January 31, 2006. Memberships for the 2007 season will be launched later in the year.
INFORMATION ON SUBIACO OVAL
Home to the Western Warriors, Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles AFL Football teams, Subiaco Oval is the largest and most recognised stadium in Western Australia, with a capacity of over 43,000 and world-class facilities.
Subiaco was built in 1908 and was then known as Mueler Park, with the first match on 9th of May in that year between Subiaco and East Perth. The facilities have been consistently improved since that time. The 3-Tier Stand which dominates the end behind the goals opened on 31 August 1969 and the 2-Tier Stand on the members’ wing on 27 April 1981. The ANZ Stand opposite the members stand opened on 14 May 1995, that stand included 2-Tiers of seating and also Corporate boxes on the wing.
Hope that it will flow in 2006- Cheetah membership that is.
die Vrystaters is maar knyp gatterig as dit by geld kom- wil graag Castle uit die beker uit suip maar seisoen kaartjies koop- nie sommer nie
Laat ek my sommer voorstel hier
Ek is Ben die Brandwag Bobbejaan
Ek krap aan alles, juis dit wat nie jeuk nie, so saam met my pel Jakob- regop sal ek julle klomp Blik-OORBies op julle se tone hou
krap maar lekker- daar is baie vlooie en ander werf-etters wat parasiteer op rugby. Hoor jy hou ook baie van skerpioenne?

Julle kan omtrent al 'n Queensland Cheetah Club begin.
