The Canberra Raiders and Austbrokers Canberra are providing more incentive for fans to sign up to a Raiders Membership in 2017, offering the chance to win $500,000 as part of a new ‘Season Predictor’ competition launched today.

Every member, aged 5 years and above, that signs up for a 2017 Raiders membership before the season commences in early March 2017 will be eligible to enter the competition*.

The competition gives Raiders members the opportunity to predict how the Raiders will go in attack and defence in 2017, with members who correctly guess all four categories of the season predictor sharing in the cash prize.

Members must guess all four of the following correctly to win:

·        Total Points scored by Canberra Raiders NRL team during the 2017 Telstra Premiership regular season matches (24 games);

·        Total Points scored against Canberra Raiders NRL team during the 2017 Telstra Premiership regular season matches (24 games);

·        Total Number of Tries scored by the Canberra Raiders NRL team during the 2017 Telstra Premiership regular season matches (24 games) and

·        Total Number of Tries scored against Canberra Raiders NRL team during the 2017 Telstra Premiership regular season matches (24 games).

To win, members must make their predictions before the Raiders season starts (Round 1, 2017) and enter them via the competition entry portal which will be housed on www.weareraiders.com.au

The promotion will begin in December after the 2017 NRL draw has been released.

Canberra Raiders halfback Aidan Sezer encouraged people to sign up for a Raiders membership in 2017, to give themselves a chance to win this lucrative cash prize on offer.

SIGN UP FOR A 2017 RAIDERS MEMBERSHIP 

“We saw some amazing support for the team in 2016 and in particular during the finals series,” Sezer said. “The team absolutely loved the support this year, with the introduction of the Viking Clap, packed houses at home finals and a record membership base all huge highlights. Thanks to Austbrokers Canberra, Raiders members now have another awesome reason to sign up to be a Member of our Club going forward. As a Club we are trying really hard to engage the Community through our performances and initiatives on and off the field and this new ‘Season Predictor’ competition is great”.

Austbrokers Canberra General Manager David Marjoribanks said the competition was a wonderful reward for Raiders members and encouraged more people to sign on for 2017.

“We’ve witnessed this year the rise of the Raiders, so Austbrokers Canberra have decided to make next season even more exciting by putting up a $500,000 prize for Raiders members,” Mr Marjoribanks said. “Imagine being in the running to win $500,000 in the last round of the season as the Raiders get set for another finals campaign. It would be a huge occasion and we’re hoping this competition can help the Raiders break another membership record in 2017.”

Raiders 2017 memberships are now on sale, with a wide range of packages that offer more than just a ticket to a game. New initiatives such as Autograph Alley and the Member’s Lounge helped the Raiders reach 15,000 for the first time in 2016. It is hoped that this ‘Season Predictor’ competition, and further initiatives to be implemented going forward, will assist the Green Machine in their pursuit to achieve 20,000 Members.
