Salford Red Devils launch new Squad Builder initiative

Hot on the heels of the ground-breaking signings last month of Aussie stars Jackson Hastings and Joey Lussick, Salford Red Devils are delighted to launch a new donation-based membership scheme that will enable fans to support the Club beyond the usual purchase of a season ticket and provide the Club with the opportunity to strengthen still further before the start of the season.
Following extensive discussions at our Fans’ Focus Groups in September a desire was identified that supporters really wanted to continue to help the club financially where possible.
As the fans are aware the Club operates without a benefactor and is totally dependent on the revenues it generates to recruit and sustain the playing squad. Whilst the Club staff, board and many volunteers continue to work hard on new initiatives the Club hasn’t historically had the biggest supporter base and is restricted to operate within a self-sufficient model. It was essential therefore, that to build a competitive squad the fans could be excited about additional sources of income needed to be established.
As the success of last season’s crowd funding highlighted that our amazing supporters were totally committed to the idea of a community-led Club, the process of putting together a new onger-term initiative to raise money began.
Now, the Club is delighted to launch a new three-tiered membership package with a unique range of benefits for fans who want to ensure the Club is capable of being Competitive. The tiering system is designed to see us recruit a playing squad that can truly match some of the ‘so called’ bigger clubs.
For either a one-off cash donation or an easily-manageable monthly amount supporters will be able to access exclusive discounts and benefits all the time knowing the extra funding is going towards making Salford more competitive and allowing us to make further signings of the calibre of Hastings and Lussick going forward.
Director of Rugby and Operations Ian Blease said: “It’s obvious we are fortunate to have such an amazing hardcore of supporters who will go above and beyond when we need them to help us out. Everybody knows we have no benefactor like most teams so, after the remarkable achievement of winning the Super League Qualifiers we have gone all out to build on that success next season, but we need funds to enable us to compete at the maximum possible level.
“The Club was extremely grateful for the opportunity the fans gave it to bring Joey Lussick to the Club, and saw it as a pilot for this innovation of the Squad Builder. We are now looking at a different level of funding to allow us bring further acquisitions to the Club so that we can progress further as a competitive Super League team in 2019.”
Below is a table of prices and benefits and fans can sign up via a monthly Direct Debit form by CLICKING HERE. Or, alternatively, you can make a one-off card or cheque payment at the Salford Red Devils offices at the AJ Bell Stadium or Direct Bank transfer.
