The Wollongong Hawks are going all out to attract a legion of new fans with the introduction of scaled-down prices for season tickets and club memberships.

Less than 100 days out from the 2014-15 NBL season, the Hawks officially launched their membership drive on Thursday at the Snakepit with a "3 for 2" deal.

Supporter memberships are available at $30 for one year or $59 for two years with a third year free.

A season ticket "1 + 1" deal is also available, which provides courtside seating for one adult and one child but the fan-friendly offers don't end there.

A bronze season ticket for 14 home games works out to $15 per game while family of four season passes are the equivalent of $9 per family member.

For fans that like to be as close to the action as possible, the Hawks are also selling VIP on-court seats a metre from the sideline.

"The future starts today," new Hawks owner James Spenceley said.

"If you're a fan of the Hawks or basketball, then get behind them with a season ticket or a support membership.

"It's important for those who come on board as supporters of the next stage of the club's journey to be recognised and we've already seen huge interest from people wanting to secure the low membership badge numbers.

"The more memberships we sell and the more attendance at games, the better and stronger we can make the organisation."

The Hawks' goal is to sell out the first game of the season against Townsville on October 10 at the WIN Entertainment Centre.

"We are going to have a very big first home game," Hawks general manager Greg Binskin said.

"We are upping the entertainment factor at half-time and I encourage everyone to be at the first home game. The greater the energy, the better the team plays."

The Paulic family of Horsley already snapped up their membership and tickets.

"My kids are absolutely besotted with the Hawks, and the whole family can't wait to see all the exciting new things the club is doing," Sue Paulic said.

"My son Jackson counts down the days to the season. He knows there's 99 to go.

"Since seeing that first home game two years ago, we haven't missed one since. We've also travelled to Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns to watch them.

"This year Jackson wants to do the Perth and Adelaide trip."
