How do I choose my seats and when will they be allocated?

If you join by returning an application form to Raiders HQ or sign up in person you will be allocated the best available seats based on your seating preferences provided.
A seat change window will open on 4 November after the same seat cut-off, and all members looking to change seats will have an opportunity to do so during this period.
Go to the Renew/My Account link and find your invoice to renew your membership. All individual members and family head’s, if part of a family membership, will be sent a renewal letter during the renewal period and will be emailed, with instructions on how to renew for 2020, including how to login to their new MyAccount.
For members wishing to renew their same seats for season 2020, the same seat cut-off will be on 31st October 2019.

For members wishing to renew their same seats, the same seat cut-off is 31 October 2019. To keep your seat, some form of payment either upfront or initial instalment if paying via monthly instalments must be received by this date.
After this date, any seats previously belonging to 2019 members who have not renewed will automatically be made available for allocation to upgrading and/or new members.
What if I’m looking to change seats for 2020?
Renewing members looking to change seats are still encouraged to renew before the same seat cut-off closes on 31 October 2019. This will ensure their seats from 2019 are secured, in the event preferred alternate seating is unavailable.
A seat change window will open on 4 November to 11 November after the same seat cut-off has closed, and all members looking to change seats will have an opportunity to do so during this period.
Members will be reminded via email and provided instructions on how to select alternate seating themselves online. If a member changes their seating during the seat change window their 2019 seats will no longer be available to them. If a member does not select alternate seats during the seat change window they will retain their 2019 seats for the 2020 season.
Additional assistance will be available from the Membership Team should you experience any difficulties during this period.
