Pride launch new membership campaign

Skill360 Northern Pride is targeting 3,000 members this season after officially kicking off its ‘More Than Pride’ membership drive.

The Intrust Super Cup squad is currently ramping up its pre-season training ahead of what is expected to be a highly successful 2013, with Jason Demetriou as coach and an impressive line-up both on and off the field.

And Pride Chief Executive Officer Chris Sheppard said the ‘More Than Pride’ campaign focuses on the community aspect of the Northern Pride, which proudly represents the whole Far North Queensland region in the third best rugby league competition in the world.

“The inspiration for the concept came from the player themselves, who proudly play for the club and have a semi-professional rugby league career, but also have regular lives where they work full-time jobs,” Sheppard said.

“However, it also includes our supporters, volunteers, coaching staff and everyone else involved in the club, who dedicate so much time to the Pride, but also have pride in so much else in their lives.

“We think our fans and the FNQ public in general will be really excited by the whole ‘More Than Pride’ concept, and we encourage them to show their support by becoming a Member," he said.

"Membership is the best measure of a club's success and stability, and the best way for our supporters to show their commitment to the Pride."
