Melbourne Storm is asking its members and supporters to make an impact and get behind their team ahead of Sunday’s elimination final against the Bulldogs at AAMI Park.
Storm’s #makeanimpact finals campaign was launched by the Club today – inspired by the words of one of the Club’s champion players.
Storm, who finished sixth after the completion of the regular season, open their 2014 finals campaign with a do-or-die clash against the seventh-placed Bulldogs.
For tickets – go to nrl.com/finals. 2014 Melbourne Storm members received details on how they can purchase tickets to Sunday's final last night.
#makeanimpact will sit alongside #purplepride across social media throughout the Storm’s finals campaign.
Members and fans will be asked to share how they #makeanimpact in supporting their Club, as well as highlighting their #makeanimpact moments of Melbourne’s 2014 season – a year full of remarkable moments.
The inspiration for the Finals specific hashtag came from Cooper Cronk’s 250-game media conference where he was asked about the Club’s ambitions for the remainder of the season.
At the time, Cronk said:
"The faith that I have in the other players, this system and the coaching staff, no matter where we finish at the end of this year I have every faith we can play our best football and make an impact in this competition."
In a season laced with highpoints, there have been a number of moments in the Club’s year that have made an impact.
Fans can share their favourite moments and display how they will Fan Up and #makeanimpact during the 2014 Finals Series online at melbournestorm.com.au. All those who enter will go in the running to win some great prizes, including a trip to the 2014 NRL Grand Final.
Each day during Storm’s 2014 Finals campaign, melbournestorm.com.au will showcase a #makeanimpact moment from the year, as well as showcasing how supporters choose to Fan Up and #makeanimpact.
