Melbourne Storm are exploring the possibility of a fan-owned ownership model.
The Storm are evaluating the fan-owned model, which is used by the Green Bay Packers in the NFL.
“We see fan ownership as an innovative way to turbo-charge the ambitious growth plans we have for the Storm by doubling our membership to 50,000 by 2023,” Storm chairman Bart Campbell said at the club’s post-season presentation.
“We know this is a complex issue and it will take some time to fully understand the interest and detail of a fan ownership model. We will keep fans up to date on any decisions that are being considered.”
Campbell said if the model wasn’t found to be viable they would continue with the current model with owners Gerry Ryan, Matt Tripp and himself.
