    The Manly Sea Eagles have recently joined Sports Super, and as a result all Sea Eagles members and supporters are also eligible to join and use this as your super fund.

    Sports Super is part of Australia’s largest super fund and has low fees for all members.

    However, unlike all other superannuation programs, Sports Super will contribute a % of Manly members low fees back to the Sea Eagles.

    If you’d like to find out more about Sports Super, including how you could potentially save money on your super fees and help Manly financially at the same time, please email sportssuper@manlyseaeagles.com.au for more information.

    This program is already providing Manly with a new source of income, and has the potential to be a significant and recurring revenue stream. See Des, Geoff and Lowie talk more about Sports Super at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aJ4T8RGa8Y

    Thanks jjai.
    You are abslutely correct. Manly's financial security is extremely important to their administration, players and supporters. The Sports Super program is one way that staff, players and supporters can participate in aiding the ongoing financial security of Manly.

    Sports Super is part of Australia's largest super fund managed by AMP. The Manly members and supporters who join Sports Super will be joining the super fund which also looks after the super benefits for the employees of Woolworths, Caltex, Channel Nine and Coke-Cola Amatil to name a few.

    If Manly were to fold in the future, the super benefits of Sports Super members will not be affected in any way - they will still be a part of Australia's largest super fund.

    We have received a number of enquiries from Silvertails forum members (please keep them coming via sportssuper@manlyseaeagles.com.au) so I'll also address these in this thread.

    What are the differences in fees paid by a Manly club member and Woolworths worker.

    What % of your 'small fees' goes to the club?

    Anually, what do you expect the financial benefit will be to the club in a $ figure?

    Thanks guys. Cognisant this is a footy forum, hence pre-clearing with some moderators. The footy aspect of this is the opportunity for supporters to contribute to the Club's financial security without having to dig into their pocket.

    Re Flip's question, the default administration and investment fee for Manly members in Sports Super is 1%.
    It's a numbers game as far as the financial contribution to Manly is concerned , in that if 1,000 Manly supporters each have $25,000 invested in their super funds, Manly will receive approximately $50,000 each and every year.

    Really happy for further queries via sportssuper@manlyseagles.com.au

    While good on you for trying to grow your business, which in that sector isnt the easiest thing to do, lets not dress it up as anything more than that.

    The major benificiary of this is you and yours, which is fine, Dont try and tell us you are doing this "for Manly"

    Thanks Fro, as discussed offline, Manly are the major benefactors of all revenue generated from Manly members in the Sports Super program. Good on you for having your super sorted.

    It's a personal choice. Super is an area just ripe for fees. Some of the fees from Sports Super go to the Sea Eagles. AMP has a rep of huge fees so just do the sums before committing.
