23 August 2016
London Irish is proud to launch a new Membership scheme for the 2016/17 season.
The new Membership scheme, which replaces the Season Ticket, is designed to reward the Club’s supporters and create a true sense of belonging, uniting the London Irish family as one Club.
There will be two options available. A ticketed Membership which includes access to all the games, and a non-ticketed Membership so that supporters who are unable to join us for all the games can still be part of the family. Further details of the non-ticketed Membership will be confirmed ahead of match tickets going on sale for 2016/17, whilst the ticketed Membership is available to purchase now.
London Irish Chief Executive, Bob Casey, said: “We recognise our supporters’ affinity with this Club goes further than where they sit on a matchday. Throughout the season they immerse themselves in London Irish and live and breathe the Club. Our membership scheme is about bringing supporters closer to the heart of the Club and rewarding their loyalty. As our London Irish family grows, we want to find a way to give supporters both near and far, the chance to be part of our Club and our membership scheme creates an opportunity for everyone to be part of our journey.”

THE MADEJSKI STADIUM
London Irish is contracted to play at the Madejski Stadium, and in the Championship, we will only have access to the west stand only. Please note: information regarding the changes in our stadium capacity will be sent directly to season ticket holders from 2015/16 and Members who have already renewed for 2016/17, alongside information on the next stages available. We appreciate that our supporters have an affinity to their seat at the Madejski Stadium and will endeavour to find the best solution for all of our supporters.
The Madejski Stadium offers uninterrupted views from every eat in the bowl and first class hospitality suites making it one of the best places to enjoy the Craic and watch the rugby. The West stand will have reserved and unreserved seating areas. Reserved seating offers supporters the opportunity to reserve their exact seat for every game, something which we know is important to a lot of our supporters. Unreserved seating gives our supporters flexibility in choosing where they would like to sit once they have arrived at the ground with their friends and family.
