The supporter's club interim committee members met with the Mariners CEO and staff during the week and discussed the plans of both the Mariners and the Official Supporters Club for the off season and for next year.

Mariners News

The club outlined the changes they're making to their structure in their efforts to improve the club and these were discussed and questions asked and answered.

The Mariners intend to ramp up fan engagement via three fan forums and the details of each of those meetings will be advertised in the near future. A number of other initiatives in the area of community engagement are planned by the Mariners and they will also be announced in the coming weeks. We anticipate the players having significant roles in these plans and it all looks positive for engaging our community. The club are also working on a number of plans for next season's match day experiences and charity events so it's exciting times ahead.

The CCM Official Supporters Club is proud to announce our intention to proceed with plans to establish membership links with Club Tuggerah (at the Centre of Excellence) for our first year of memberships.
