The Sydney Roosters are committed to work with you where possible to help you respond to financial difficulty, whether temporary or long-term. We are committed to helping members facing financial hardship maintain their relationship with our club and, where possible, their membership entitlements.

This special consideration and flexibility will depend on your individual circumstances, and we provide this on a case-by-case basis.

Financial hardship can be short-term and temporary, but sometimes it can last much longer. Usually, it is the result of a change in income, employment, living arrangements, or an unexpected expense.

You might experience hardship because of factors like:

  • unemployment/partial or full loss of employment;
  • death in the family;
  • acute/chronic illness of you or a family member;
  • family breakdown; and
  • unexpected major natural disaster eg: major flood, drought, fire etc.

We use this definition to make our assessment as to whether you are eligible, but we endeavour to apply it broadly to help members in a variety of difficult circumstances.

8.1.3 If you are struggling financially or experiencing some form of hardship or unforeseen circumstances, we ask that you contact us via email at membership@sydneyroosters.com.au to share your situation and see whether you are eligible for special consideration and flexibility. Your email should include:

YOUR DETAILS:
First Name, Last Name, Contact Number, Email Address

DETAILS OF MEMBERSHIP:
Member Number, Membership Type, Package, Affected Members

DETAILS OF MEMBERSHIP PURCHASE:
Payment time, Payment method, Full list of Purchases including all family Members

YOUR REQUEST:
Outline the reasons for your request 

Once we receive your request, we will be in touch to discuss it as quickly as we are able to.  

We may need to request some information from you to assess your eligibility, but we will act reasonably, and we will always treat your request confidentially and fairness.
