Storm enter 14th Finals series

  • Storm launches #makeanimpact finals campaign – urges members and fans to get behind the team
  • Storm finishes regular season sixth and faces seventh-placed Bulldogs at AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon
  • Tickets available at nrl.com/finals.

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.

In addition to encouraging members and fans to use the #makeanimpact hashtag, the Storm’s finals campaign will include a push to become the first sporting club in Melbourne to reach 400,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook.

Storm is currently the most ‘liked’ sporting club on Facebook in Melbourne - with over 373,000 followers.
