The club would like to announce that memberships are now available for the upcoming (and eventual) 2020/21 season.
To start with, the membership fee of £40 per year is applicable to everyone including senior players but excluding season ticket holders. (Note that the membership fee for senior players who are either students or WRUFC sponsored apprentices is £20 – see the senior players membership application form for details (below)
Due to the very uncharted period brought about by Covid-19, it continues to be very difficult to confirm the cost of season tickets as the actual start date remains fluid. The RFU have given an indication of the shape of the new season based on three possible starting windows, namely September, October/November or January, and while a fixtures list for the first half of the season has been issued based on a September start with possible season extensions for later starts or a reduced number of matches, nothing has yet been confirmed.
Existing season ticket holders
As a result of the difficult and extraordinary times we find ourselves in, we are asking all existing season ticket holders to consider paying season ticket fees on schedule at the same rates as last season, that is, £166 for a single season ticket and £308 for a joint season ticket. If there is a very late start to the season that results in the number of matches being reduced, we would again ask you to stand by your current annual subs as we still have a club to run even without income from matches; we also have the major expenditure on the new boiler (£100,000 approx), half of which will be financed out of our reserves and half by a commercial loan.
Most existing members and season ticket holders are on direct debits so your subs will be collected automatically. If you have any difficulty with your membership level, please contact us and we will try to assist you, but please do not cancel without talking to us first.
New season ticket holders
If you are wishing to become a season ticket holder for the first time, we would ask that you consider paying the single fee of £166 and the joint fee of £308, as this would greatly help the club to continue. If you are not able to do this, please contact us and we will try to assist you.
The Cavalry Club is another way of supporting the club and was formed over ten seasons ago to raise funds after the withdrawal of financial support from the RFU for the community game. Cavalry Club members are able to be involved with complimentary match sponsorship, coach trips to selected away fixtures, outings and other social events.
