Melbourne Victory CEO Trent Jacobs says he’s been overwhelmed by the response from the club’s members in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the past weeks the club has received heart warming correspondence from members including messages of support, offers to fundraise and enquiries on how they can help.
Jacobs said the past month has demonstrated how tight knit the Victory family is.
“We’ve been taking so many calls and emails from members saying they want to support and they want to help.
“We’ve been buoyed by the fact that people have continued to join and buy memberships at the back end of the season.
“It tells an incredible story about people’s commitment to our football club.
“For those that love Melbourne Victory, we’re clear in our plans for the next three to six months, we’ll stay connected to you all and whilst we’re going to have some rocky roads ahead our clear intent is to come out the other side.”
And over what will be a different Easter long weekend, the club is urging the Victory family to look after each other.
“On behalf of Melbourne Victory to all our members and fans, please stay safe over this Easter.”
“Continue to stay home, stay connected and look after your loved ones.”
Victory members are encouraged to share their favourite memories, photos and videos of the club across social media using the hashtag #OurVictory.
