The Gold Coast SUNS have set yet another membership record, announcing its highest ever AFLW membership tally in Season Seven.
In the club’s fourth AFLW campaign, the final tally of 1,194 members for Season Seven eclipses the figure set earlier in 2022 which was itself a strong growth on Season Five.
It’s the second membership record broken in 2022 for the GC SUNS having breached the 20,000 membership mark for the first time in August after recording membership totals of 19,460 in 2021 and 16,236 in 2020.
The record-breaking figure forms part of the AFL’s all-time AFLW Club membership record of 75,568 – a 55% growth season on season.
The number surpasses the previous record of 48,712 that was set in Season Six with a staggering 193% growth on membership sales since Season Five.
The GC SUNS were one of 17 clubs to achieve AFLW membership records.
“It has truly been a unique year – two seasons, a new CBA, four new clubs, we took matches to places we have never been before and with it came new fans, more members and more people engaged in our competition than ever before.” AFL EGM Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said.
“We have a great, great competition, one that is going from strength to strength and on behalf of the AFL we thank every single person that watched, attended, and bought a membership to support their club,
“The passion for AFLW on and off the field is unmatched in national women’s sport competitions across the country. This passion is a powerful tool, and we must continue to harness it for good and celebrate the difference, the uniqueness and the joy that is AFLW football.”
