One of the most interesting things to come out of last week's press conference is that Rocket City United has introduced Club Memberships for the 2009 season. Similar club memberships are a big part of many of the most successful European clubs. The likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and even the new Seattle Sounders FC offer similar memberships in their clubs for fans .
This is a great idea. It allows RCU fans to interact directly with team and management and provides a means to help the club achieve whatever goals the fans think are important.
So, what does the RCU club membership entail? All members receive:
20% Off all merchandise including tickets
Member Events:private viewing parties, Season Kick-off Party
Club Membership Card with discounts @select retailers
Club Window Decal
Annual Club Meeting
Club Member Hospitality Tent @Home Games
Pre- and Post-Game Interview in Club Tent
Three Elected Reprentatives on RCU Advisory Board
Friday Club Lunch @The Scence Lounge Monaco Pictures April-July
Sounds pretty cool to me.
