25,000 SOCIOS FOR DEPOR

18 Aug 2012
For the second straight season Deportivo is reaching the mark of 25,095 socios, now the target is to pass the 27,000. Last season the club ended with 25,589. The record at the club is the 30,800 from the campaign 2003/04.

The club announced on Friday that 25,095 socios have renewed or subscribed their membership with the club. The figure of the "socio" is common in Spain and represents a supporter whos an official member of the club paying to become season-ticket holders. Its a positive mark taking in mind that last season Deportivo reached the 25,000 socios on February 23.

Now Depor is reaching the same mark but six months before; the last count of the past season presented by the club was 25,589 (May 17), so the club could beat that mark before the end of August. In past press conferences president Lendoiro has told to the media that the target of the club is to reach 27,000 socios. The record at the club is the 30,800 of the campaign 2003/04, just at the end of the Champions League era.
