Sydney has reached a record membership tally of over 70,000 members for the first time in their 150-year history.

On Wednesday, the Swans revealed that a record total of 70,740 members (previously 65,332) had joined so far in 2024 to witness the club storm to the top of the ladder with a 12-1 record.

In a momentous occasion in the club's history, CEO Tom Harley is in awe of how far the club has come since its South Melbourne days, with the development across the board leading to a successful era in the modern game.

“Over our 150-year journey many incredible people have given their blood, sweat and passion to lead us to where we are today,” Harley said.

“Membership records don't just happen – they're the combination of hard work on field by our athletes, innovation off field from our staff, and commitment from our loyal supporters who understand footy is better as a member.

“I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone in our red and white family for helping us build a strong club that we can all be proud of – we have achieved this together.

“Importantly, we're not finished yet. There is much to be excited about as we build towards our goal of 75,000 members, so I encourage Swans fans to get on board and be part of something special.”

The club is also buoyed by the amount of fans flocking to the SCG, with attendance, on average, falling just shy of 40,000.
