Wasps announce new Membership Scheme
Wasps is delighted to introduce our exciting new Membership Scheme which is set to reward you as a Wasps supporter for life!
To mark the Club’s first full season in our new home, Wasps have decided to introduce a new way of engaging with all supporters, old and new, creating an exciting and inspiring memberships programme for Wasps fans to get closer to the Club they love.
From today, all Season Ticket Holders will automatically become either Champions Members or Gold Members but there will be no change to the seasonal benefits package or seat that you purchased for the 2015/16 Aviva Premiership season.
So what are you - a Champions Member or are you a Gold Member?
If you have previously held a season ticket at Adams Park and have purchased your seat this summer for the 2015/16 season at the Ricoh Arena, you will become a Champions Member.
If you purchased a half season ticket in December 2014 and have upgraded to a full season ticket for the 2015/16 season, you are now a Gold Member.
If this is the first time that you have ever held a Wasps season ticket, you will also be known as a Gold Member.
So why are we changing things?
The Club may well be evolving but we want all Wasps fans to be part of that journey, participating in all of our future successes.
Prior to the Club’s move to the West Midlands, Wasps made a promise to existing supporters that their loyalty and commitment of previous seasons would not be forgotten and that their ongoing support would be recognised. This is a pledge that we are determined to stand by and it is why we consider them our ‘Champions’.
However, every Wasps Member is as equally important to us regardless of category. Whether you are a Champions or Gold member, you can be sure that you will receive a package filled to the brim with benefits, money-can’t-buy experiences and value-for-money offers which make being a Wasps fan even more exciting.
Many supporters will already be aware of the core benefits of being a Season Ticket Holder, which include your guaranteed seat for every home Aviva Premiership, European Cup Pool and friendly fixture played at the Ricoh Arena during the 2015/16 season.
On top of this, you can expect a minimum 10% discount on Wasps Official Merchandise and priority access to tickets for all Wasps games home-and-away, meaning that you can get hold of those extra tickets you need for you, your family or your friends.
There are also Members-only discounts available on a range of events at the Ricoh Arena and for those of you who plan to make a weekend of it when you watch Wasps game, there are even savings on hotel bookings at our refurbished DoubleTree by Hilton.
We have again been invited to take part in this season’s London Double Header at Twickenham on November 28th. Although this will be an away game, the Club has negotiated a 25% discount on tickets for all Champions and Gold Members to thank you for following Wasps throughout this season (maximum of 4 tickets per member).
Champions and Gold Members can even expect to receive regular eNewletters which are crammed with exciting exclusive content, videos, competitions and the very latest news from the Ricoh Arena.
The Wasps Membership Scheme is all about flexibility delivering a range of offers, savings and benefits offered to Champions and Gold members as an additional “thank you” for joining the Wasps Family. Some of the bonuses that Champions or Gold members may expect throughout the season may include:
- Greater discounts on products and services at the Ricoh Arena
- ‘Bring-a-Buddy’ discounts for you, your family and friends
- Free guest lounge passes for you, your family and friends
- Priority booking on Ricoh gigs, concerts and events before tickets go on general sale
- Free upgrade to enjoy hospitality at the Ricoh Arena
- Money can’t buy experiences with Wasps and the Ricoh Arena
Another great new development for 2015/16 Champions and Gold Members will be the introduction of a Loyalty Points Scheme.
Across the new season, supporters will be able to accrue Loyalty Points simply for purchasing your Membership and for purchasing tickets for Aviva Premiership and European Champions Cup games. You will even be awarded points just for attending Wasps games at the Ricoh Arena.
In recognition of your loyal support in the past, we will also update your Loyalty Points balance to take into account any match and/or Season Tickets that you have purchased during the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons, either at Adams Park or at the Ricoh Arena.
Supporters who are already 2015/16 Champions or Gold Members can expect to receive their Membership packs towards the end of September and in plenty of time for our massive pre-season friendly with Northampton Saints. In the meantime, your tickets and passes for the Singha 7s and Samoa Rugby World Cup warm-up will be delivered to you shortly.
And don’t forget that memberships – which include all of the benefits already mentioned – are still available to buy in a range of seating categories to suit everyone’s needs. Whether you want to sit in the best seats in the house, crave to be at the very heart of the action or want an environment that suits your whole family, there is a seat at the Ricoh Arena which is perfect for you!
If that isn’t enough to tempt you, how would you like to the opportunity to secure tickets for England Six Nations games at Twickenham? Every Champions or Gold Member will automatically be placed in our ballot for a pair of tickets for England home games next spring, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to enter.
