In the final days of summer on a beautiful warm night at The Greens North Sydney, we brought together our corporate partners, sponsors, members, staff and senior playing group to celebrate the launch of the North Sydney Bears 2024 Knock-On Effect NSW Cup season. Guests sipped on chilled Bear Park Brews and Grizzly Gin-gers, featuring our very own Bear Park Gin, consumed delicious morsels of bao buns, sliders, arancini balls and gourmet sausage rolls and reveled in the feeling that only the anticipation of a new season brings. With one week until comp kick off to go, pre-season is almost done, trial games successfully completed and now the big job of tackling the next 26 rounds begins.


At training on Tuesday, the team gathered around Head Coach Pat Weisner with eager anticipation for the announcement of our 2024 Knock-On Effect NSW Cup Leadership Team. With some on bended knee and others standing, all fixated on their head coach, listening with respect and admiration, you could feel the bond this year's playing group already has. As Weisner says, winning the two main pre-season trials helps in creating a happy group, and he is so right however the connection goes deeper than this and we hope to see their combined strength continue forward into the competition when it kicks off next weekend.

Boston Bears Play Vegas

As all of the rugby league world looks to Vegas this weekend, we are proud to have the Bears represented too. In a club first, the North Sydney Bears have partnered with the Boston Thirteens in a move that will see the team play in the NRL Vegas 9's tournament as the Boston Bears. Wearing our iconic red & black hoops and featuring a bespoke version of the Bears shield logo on the chest, with the addition of the text "Boston", the team is set to make headlines.

2024 Membership Now Available

In 2023 our members turned up and tuned in to cheer on the mighty red & black as we marched all the way to the Grand Final. With your help, in 2024 we aim to go one better!

Last season we had nearly 25,000 people attend our home games at North Sydney Oval and there was no better sight than seeing thousands of Bears members and fans march to CommBank Stadium chanting “North Sydney” on Grand Final Day. In 2023 we also hit the 2000-member milestone, and with your help, we are keen to see this figure rise again in the new year. Please share the Bear with your family and friends.

We have big things planned for Bears home games in the new year, filled with special events and some exclusive members-only activities. 2024 marks 30 years since the iconic 1994 “Citibank” jersey was first worn and so you will find nods to this historic moment throughout our members pack, and we hope you will wear the Bear with pride. PLUS, check out the exclusive members-only offers we are launching for the new season. Each offer is only available for a limited time!
