WITH the footy season started or close to starting this weekend, footy clubs have their foot to the floor on membership drives.
Fans are scrambling to secure membership and season tickets before the first game to get the most value for money.
But what options do supporters have?
Mark Lever and his son Jayden already have their memberships and season tickets so are planning to see every home game.
"We see every home game," Mr Lever said.
"This year we are going to go (to every home game) because the kids are free.
"It should work and bring more people through the gate."
Jayden plays for Cudgen and was part of the under 10s premiership team.
Most clubs have various packages available depending on just how fanatical the member wants to be and the funds available.
Gold Coast Titans have launched a program of a free membership for juniors with one full adult membership.
"One of the main messages we have received in speaking with Titans fans in the last few weeks, is that families are doing it tougher than anyone else - so we felt it was time to make some changes to our pricing structure,'' Titans CEO David May said.
"By making kids memberships free, it's our way of helping to ease the pressure on families that love their rugby league but have been restricted by economic factors in the past."
The Titans have also increased the age of juniors from the age of 12 to all school aged children living with their parents.
The NRL club has also reduced some membership fees by 30%.Membership gives fans discounts on reserve seating as well as free entry to feeder club games including the Tweed Seagulls.

With 11 home games this season that just over $17 a ticket.
The membership also includes discounts to the Suns merchandise store.
The suns have almost 9500 members leading into the season opener.
