Wildcats Break Membership record

The Wildcats have broken the 7000 member barrier and currently have 7,049 members. Wildcats have said they have sold over 10,000 tickets to the game vs Sixers next week. Good signs.

What's the record crowd for an NBL game? For a Sixers game?

Be a great thing to watch, but playing in front of 10,000 one eyed opposing fans?

Perth to the NBL, are what CSKA are to the Russian PBL.


A superclub indeed. Good on them.

Club inequality isn't the best, but it gives other teams something to strive for.
If every club had similar membership numbers, the league would be in a considerably better position

So keen for the first home game.

Checked out the Arena on the weekend just gone and it is very very good.

It is a great result. I think there is little doubt this is an all time NBL record for membership, not just Perth.

Just want to ask every one, why they call perth supporters arrogant and all the other shit people say! When u have a club and a history like they have, it's not hard not to be arrogant! Best club, best fans! Think there are gona rock the arena! To get 10,000 for a regular season game is outstanding! Credit to every one involved at head office and to the fans and members! Win lose against adelaide next week, it's goin to be a history of a night! Proud to be in the red army!

biggest crowd ever was Sydney V Canberra at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney, around 18,000. In Acie Earl's last NBL game.

The NBL media guide says "17143 02/10/99 SYDNEY vs CANBERRA" That seems strange to me. What venue was that at?

Interesting that the NBL media guide has no "home crowd" record for Perth.

Curtley, wasn't that the night West Sydney played the Harlem Globe Trotters or something like that?

I believe that night was 26/11/04 NBL: Razorbacks v Kings 14,805

I think the 17000 was a double header to start the season.

There was one in Melbourne too that night with 12,000-odd from memory, and the two beers per quarter rule over two games gave me enough dutch courage that when I met my future wife that night I didnt waste the chance!!

The scary thing is, you can guarantee atleast 7 thousand every single night which blows the league averages out of the water.. there will be alot of nights where they hit 10 thousand for sure. good on them for showing initiative, there team isnt even that entertaining and they have done that. Adelaides very poor publiciy heads and marketing need to stand u and take notice... we have an 8 thosand capacity.. why arent we getting more people? hat shit add of ours wont do it.

Impressive.

Next challenge: sustain interest and investment long enough for the rest of the teams in the major markets (both current and near future) to catch up.

Anon #386255.....you may have quantity but we have quality!

You may have the biggest membership base but that doesnt mean you have the best! The best by definition has nothing to do with quantity.

Tornado: Well actually, by definition, it would be accurate to say the Wildcats have the "best" part of basketball fans in Australia. Because a definition of best is "largest; most:"

For the sport as a whole, a new arena and getting 10000 to a game is great.

I only took exception to your last sentence.

"The best by definition has nothing to do with quantity."

Remove the "by definition" bit, and we'd be 100% in agreement. Anyway, I was in a pedantic mood. Its not really worth more time from either of us.

The largest Perth crowd ever was approx 9,200 in 2004 agaisnt the Tigers when they played that game out at the Burswood dome as a part of the Summerjam festival. There was a AND1 exibition game just before the Wildcats/Tigers game...
