Knights continue to praise supporters
The nib Newcastle Knights has had a few tough years on the field but the support of Members and fans remains amongst the best in the competition.
Sunday’s match showed that, with a massive crowd attendance of 20,535 to cheer on the red and blue in their last match for the 2017 season.
Big numbers throughout the season have lifted the Club’s crowd average to fourth across the NRL competition, with an average home crowd attendance of 15,619, increasing by 8 per cent this year.
The number of Members has been boosted by 10 per cent this season, while Member attendance has also increased by 11 per cent.
“We consider our Members and fans the best in the competition and our figures from this year support exactly that,” CEO Matt Gidley said.
“To see more than 20,000 on Sunday was a magnificent show of support for our young team and made for another memorable Old Boys Day.
“Our Members and fans have stuck by us through some particularly challenging years and we appreciate their continued support and dedication.”
