Tigers break AFL club membership record

Richmond are the latest AFL club to set a membership record, reaching 30,070.

They had 30,044 at the June 30 cut-off last year, with the record coming in their centenary year.

After some mixed form in the opening month of the season, the Tigers have played much better in the last three weeks.

"Breaking the record is a tribute to our loyal supporters, who have continued to join the club year after year," chief executive Steven Wright said in a club statement.

"It is fantastic that the members have shown their continued passion for this great club in our centenary year.

"This is even more pleasing given we still have more than 3,500 ticketed members yet to renew for season 2008, so we encourage them to get on board to ensure we set a high benchmark for the future."
