The ‘From the Stands’ team understands the importance of club memberships, that’s why we have decided to introduce the ‘Membership Tracker’.
Over the next few months we will update the progress of every club and their membership tally. We will also provide a link to how YOU can purchase a club membership. If you can help update the numbers let us know.

Join now for 2016/17
Central Coast Mariners
On the back of signing the Socceroos greatest ever scorer Timmy Cahill, Melbourne City are set for their biggest ever season. On the back of Bruno Fornaroli committing to the club for three more seasons City’s attacking stocks have never looked better.
With a strong midfield and a developing defence City will be challenging for the title all season long and should be at the pointy end of the table all season long.
Over the last two seasons City have promised much but failed to deliver, 2016/17 is the season where expectations could not only be met, but smashed.
Hopefully someone finds the key to the trophy cabinet, we might actually need them this season.
After a reasonably disappointing 2015/16 A-League campaign for the club, Victory are rebuilding to reclaim its spot back on top of the A-League ladder. The reigning FFA Cup champions have by far the largest fanbase in the league, so signing up to get your reserved seat early is essential as the number of memberships may outnumber the number of seats available due to AAMI Park’s capacity.
Despite the loss of key members from the 14/15 championship winning squad such as Archie Thompson, Gui Finkler, Kosta Barbarouses and Matthieu Delpierre, Kevin Muscat and the backroom staff will be aiming to rebuild to be stronger than ever and compete for their record breaking fourth A-League championship!
Whether you want to be a part of the North Terrace’s wall of sound and support, or get the prime view seating on the wing, or be wined and dined from the commercial seating options, there is a membership for you! Join now and be #ArmInArm with the most successful A-League franchise.

As he second week of preseason commences at Ray Watt Oval, home of the Newy Jets the calming impact of the sale to Chinese business Martin Lee and the Ledman group is more than obvious.
That along with the next gen training sessions, main man Scott Miller and new assistant coach Luciano Trani have put together a reNEWed Jets squad that seems invigorating by their break and not having the same content in the four sessions I’ve attended.
I think it will take wins on the score sheets to entice some of the faithful back to the seats of Hunter Stadium. It’s been a lean few years , the fallout from #Tinkerastrophe slowly wafting away under FFA rule.
New owner Martin Lee has given three years to be competitive in the ACL. He’s also very big on the Jets being driven by the local community. “Newy the way it’s supposed to be.”
Really impressed by recent squad inclusions adding to the experience we already have. Don’t be surprised to see somebody from Newy take the A-League apart this season.
An Andy Brennan, a Mitch Cooper, returning Newy boy Andrew Hoole or our dangerous dynamic Danish dude Morten Nordstrand as the golden boot, it’s there for the taking.
Additions at admin level include a new CEO, ex Coastie coach, Prime Minister of Gosford and all round top bloke Lawrie McKinna and his adviser for Chinese Football and Trade, Golden God of Newy Football, Joel Griffiths.
Interesting season 16/17 ahead for the Red and Blue faithful, it’s going to be one hell of a ride. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. #NTUA
It’s been a bleak few years in the once proud history of Perth Glory, but there are signs the dark times are behind them. After a superb turnaround to reach the finals last year, an excellent off-season recruitment drive has Perth fans dreaming of silverware. With a revised focus on blooding home-grown players and strong depth all over the park, this is a team all Western Australia can get behind.
Johnny Warren Medalist Diego Castro is back, as is Coach Kenny Lowe, so there’s no better time to get behind the Glory.
2016/17 – The year Perth re-establishes itself as one of the best clubs in the land.
Being a football supporter is a journey, you experience jubilant highlights and devastating lows. Unfortunately for Sydney FC, the latter applies to the end of last season with the Sky Blues bowing out on away goals in the ACL and failing to make the A-League finals. This has left a sour taste in the mouths of everyone associated with the club, a taste which the team, staff and supporters won’t want to experience that again.
So this season we can expect everyone to go out giving 110% to make right a wrong from the last campaign and return to the heights of which this club experienced in 2006 and 2010 alike.
This season is poised to be one of the most significant in the history of the Phoenix.
Following the groundswell of support that arose not just in NZ, but around Australia and the world from last year’s #SaveTheNix campaign the club now has its future and a ten year license secured. Rolling into the 16/17 A-League season and the Nix’s ten year anniversary celebrations it’s now time for fans of the club to step up and help the club meet the membership and attendance numbers that are key metrics the FFA will be monitoring.
On the field there has never been as exciting a line up, with Roy Krishna, WeeMac and Roly Bonevacia being joined in the attacking half by Kosta Barbarouses and Brazilian Gui Finkler. That could well be one of the A League’s most entertaining attacking units.
There’s no better atmosphere in live sports in New Zealand than when Westpac Stadium is roaring the Phoenix on.
Adult season memberships start at just $189.00, and kids season memberships are just $30.00! That’s great value. And in a great new initiative NSW based Nix fans can now get a ‘NSW Membership’ which gives you tickets to the 4 games in NSW this year as well as the game in Canberra.
So get involved and get yourself a Wellington Phoenix season membership and help support the club in its tenth anniversary year!
Western Sydney Wanderers
So very much has already been achieved in only four seasons of football as an A-League entity. Everyone associated with this unique club in the multicultural heartland of Australia has a vital role in our shared success; the players, coaches, staff and fans alike.
Although titles and trophies are important, the measure of success is far greater. Community connections around football, the true world game, is about inclusiveness where anyone from a diverse range of backgrounds can become part of a huge ‘family’ enjoying football. We gather in unison, shoulder to shoulder, from across the streets of Western Sydney.
As a foundation member, I will once again renew my membership to continue contributing unconditional support for the Wanderers, and knowing that together in the forthcoming season we can give the A-League and Asian Champions League another big shake under the astute guidance of legendary coach Tony Popovic.
So get on the continuing journey as a club member and contribute your passion and energy on the terraces at out temporary residences at the Spotless and ANZ stadiums.
C’mon you Wanderers.
