Business is business but, whichever way you look at it, perception is reality.
My family has already signed on for 2023 - we are rusted on members - but dollars only go so far.

I thought there was a fan/member group formed last year which was to liaise with the club admin - did 2023 membership NOT get considered as this is the very basis of continued fan engagement?

NRL 2023 membership ticket prices revealed​

They’ve been absent from the NRL finals for a decade but that hasn’t stopped Wests Tigers hitting their fans where it hurts. We reveal which club’s members will pay top dollar for home games.

The Wests Tigers may have finished at the bottom of the ladder this year but are still expecting long suffering fans to pay top dollar to watch their team in 2023.
Remarkably, only new franchise the Dolphins are charging more than what the joint venture is asking its faithful to fork out for an adult membership to home games.

News Corp has examined the cheapest season tickets for adults and families at each club next year, and, given the current economic climate, some of the results are surprising.

The most affordable Tigers’ season ticket, which doesn’t include “home” games at Tamworth, Hamilton (New Zealand) and Brisbane (Magic Round), will set fans back almost $28 a game.

Only the Dolphins, at over $32 a game, ask their new fanbase for more.

“I’m not too happy about it,” says long-time season ticket-holder Dean Morgan.

“Those ‘home games’ aren’t included, so how can we be the second most expensive when three of those games we can’t attend because they’re interstate or overseas?

“It doesn’t make sense at all.”

Morgan said the revelations would factor into his decision to renew his membership.

“I usually go with my dad to Campbelltown and Leichhardt. I haven’t looked into the prices but if they’re the second most expensive, that’s something to think about,” he said.
On the other end of the scale, Canterbury have the cheapest membership offering next year.
The Bulldogs’ home game package of 11 matches, which includes an away game deal with fellow Accor Stadium tenants South Sydney, is almost half that of the Tigers.
Canterbury, along with Newcastle, also have the best deals for families across the league.
Bulldogs CEO Aaron Warburton said the club made it a priority to be able to offer its supporters the most affordable membership packages in the NRL.

“The Bulldogs are ‘the Family Club’ and members are at the core of our family,” he said.
“They play a critical role in the success of the Bulldogs both on and off the field and our commitment to them has always been and remains to be, providing them with value-driven and affordable memberships.”
Keeping memberships affordable in a climate of rising interest rates and the cost of living was a crucial consideration for the Bulldogs.
“We know that we have all been impacted in different ways throughout recent years, so we have done our best to keep our membership rates as low as possible despite rising costs to the club,” Warburton said.
“We kept rates flat for six years and we rolled membership benefits forward from the 2021 season to account for the impacts and restrictions of the pandemic.

“But now in 2023, more than ever, we need the support of our members.”
The Belmore outfit has managed to remain low-cost even after increasing the price of memberships by four per cent across the board this year.
“The future success of our club relies on keeping competitive with our rival NRL teams and investing in our people and pathways,” he said.
“Despite some small rate increases across some of our membership packages in 2023, our memberships still remain one of the most affordable of all the clubs.

“We were conscious to complete a thorough analysis before making any changes to membership packages to ensure that we remain one of the most value-driven clubs in the NRL, which we are confident that we have achieved.”
The Tigers have been asked for comment on their membership prices.

This will be an interesting thread to send to the Ask the Bosses initiative....

After serving up the rubbish they did over the past few years, but especially the amazing amount last comp, they slug the fans with the second highest prices....
It would be interesting to see how they actually come to the pricing conclusion....

They are on right general track with giving people some choice but the implementation has been awful. Have a few options for people to choose from.
Scrap the dollars value like a shop and have points.

Everyone is given a set amount of points and use that to create a pack. The standard pack should have a points value attached.

The card either doesn’t exist or is an opt in option for free.

Shipping - no cost

There fixed the entire process

Does anyone know what program opens that file.

What if you want more than the standard pack?

People are missing the point. the whole idea was to provide flexibility, you can get the standard pack or you can mix it up and get other items that you want and delete items you dont want. if it costs more you pay more

Let me hazard a guess for you. Pascoe will come out mid week, saying "it was an outside entity that raised the prices, we had no idea, our loyal Members deserve better" then hell do nothing. Because he's an incompetent flop.

Like they would even consider answering a question like that. The answers are always fluff pieces to make everything look good, they will never go for the hard questions that might make them look bad.

Exactly how the system should be, but of course that is too logical for the Tigers to do.

I worked it out. If you have an apple computer or iPhone the file will open, if you have an android you have to download and install passwallet for android.
Once downloaded you can view you card and membership details and also print it out.
I hate the idea. It's cost cutting for the club but makes my connection to the club seem more like ever before, just an number 😡
