Four A-League Women clubs have broken their membership records with less than six weeks to go until the season opener.
Brisbane Roar, Canberra United, Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC have announced in recent weeks that they have broken their A-League Women (known for sponsorship reasons as Liberty A-League) membership records.
In a Q&A, Brisbane Roar chief operating officer Zac Anderson noted that the FIFA Women’s World Cup was inspiring the support from fans.
He said: “I am excited to announce that we have smashed our record with our A-League Women’s memberships. Last year, and reviewing the last couple of years, it’s been an unbelievable response and we hope the momentum from the FIFA Women’s World Cup continues.
“I am proud to announce that we are now well over 1,000 A-League Women’s memberships. It is exciting to see the Liberty A-League passes being well received and very popular off the back of the Women’s World Cup, and a huge response regarding our community and great local support.”
The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup was hosted by Australia and New Zealand, and was won for the first time by Spain.
Canberra revealed that it had broken its membership record last week, while Victory reached 1,000 members for the first time last month. Sydney also noted that the club had witnessed a 500% increase on last year’s membership figure.
In total, some 15,000 Liberty Passes have been purchased ahead of the season opener.
The league will begin on October 13.
