Collingwood President Jeff Browne has announced the club has reached 100,000 members for the very first time.

The Pies become the third club to reach the 100k club in 2022, following the likes of Richmond and West Coast.

A letter from President Jeff Browne and CEO Mark Anderson was sent to members on Monday morning.

"It’s been brilliant to see the Magpie Army filling stadiums this season and enjoying being back at the football after a challenging couple of years," the letter reads.

"We couldn’t be prouder of the way our AFL team is progressing – and what a game in Round 23 – the smallest of wins against the biggest of rivals to secure fourth spot leading into the finals."

Collingwood have exceeded all expectations this year after most tipped them for being a bottom four side, and finished top four after a win over Carlton in Round 23.

Breaking their membership record is just another example of the club exceeding expectations in 2022.

"Our members and supporters have been brilliant, as always," the letter continues.

"You have showed up, week in, week out – and today we are pleased to announce and celebrate reaching 100,000 members for the first time in the history of this great club.

"That is testament to the loyalty of Collingwood fans who have ranked our club as the most attended in the AFL competition and the most viewed on television.

"A sincere thank you to each and every person who has signed up as a Collingwood member in 2022. We are enormously grateful for the support especially given the challenges presented to all of us with the pandemic over the last couple of years.

"We are humbled by the support shown by all members, and it is with thanks to each of you that the Collingwood Football Club can get better on and off the field and across all areas of the Club.

"That is across our men’s programs with the AFL and VFL teams, our women’s programs with the AFLW, VFLW and Netball teams – totalling 94 women athletes – our Wheelchair team, Reclink team and wider Collingwood community programs which feed and house thousands of Victorians each week.

"Thank you, and as our motto says, may the Magpie flourish."

Collingwood will be taking on flag favourites Geelong in a sold out clash on Saturday afternoon at the MCG.
