MORE than three quarters of Warrington Wolves members have chosen to donate the value of games missed back to the club.

Last week, The Wire gave 2020 members were given two alternative options to a refund on their memberships after the coronavirus pandemic forced a lengthy shutdown of the Super League season.

Supporters could donate the value of the games missed to the club and renew at the standard earlybird price next season to support the future of Warrington Wolves.

In doing so, they would become 2020 legacy members.

Members could also choose to take a credit against their membership in future seasons.

So far, just over 10 per cent of members have asked for a refund, with chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick hailing the loyalty and passion displayed by the primrose and blue faithful.

“We have had an incredible response to the launch of our rebate options with, to date, just over 10% of all members requesting a refund,” he said.

“As stated throughout this process, we understand and respect that some of you will be struggling financially and, sadly, this may be your only option.

“However, the majority of members that have responded have opted to ‘Donate’ and in turn become a 2020 Legacy Member.

“This demonstration of commitment and loyalty is extremely humbling, and we thank each and every one of you for this amazing support.”

“If you are a member that has not yet responded then we ask that, if you are able do so, you consider the two alternatives to a refund and in particular the Donate/2020 Legacy Membership.

“By taking this option, you will be putting the Club in a much stronger position to navigate through this difficult period and allow us to continue to be a force within the Betfred Super League into next season and beyond.”

As a reminder, members choosing the Donate option will be recognised by the club by being made a 2020 Legacy Members and will receive the following;

- Your name permanently emblazoned on our ‘2020 Legacy Wall’ at The Halliwell Jones Stadium

- Your name inside the tunnel wall for the duration of the 2021 season

- Your name on the team’s official warm-up shirt for the 2021 season

- A uniquely designed 2021 membership card

- A dedicated ‘Legacy Round’ during the 2021 season, to recognise and acknowledge your support
