27 W 35th St, New York, NY
This is the sign-up event for the Peña Madridista NYC (PMNYC) Official Membership for the 2016/17 season.
Coming off another amazing and historic season, culminated in winning a record 11th Champions League Cup, our NYC-Madridista family has continued to expand; and this season we again expect our NEW headquarters at The Playwright Irish Pub (Playwright) to be THE hottest ticket in town for all Real Madrid games, big or small.
So, to allow us to manage and welcome our new members, and to more fairly accommodate our past members and their guests during big games, we will temporarily halt new memberships the week before such games (i.e. Clásicos, Derbis, Finals); that is, you and your guest(s) will NOT be allowed into Playwright's upper level (and possibly lower level) unless you are signed up as an Official Peña Member (OPM) by the week before these big events.
This season's Official Peña Membership fee will be $35 (*). And just like last season, all Membership materials will be handled by our partners at Upper90 - New York’s Soccer Store. So please read all the IMPORTANT information below all the way through, especially new members not familiar with our process.
First of all, you MUST RSVP YES to this Meetup Event - this is for the organizers to be able to communicate with you as a member.
Second, ALL Membership payments and materials will be managed through our Upper90 partners site, so please go to:
* Note: All past 2015/16 OPMs will have received a $5 discount code via a group e-mail to be used at the above Upper90 link.
Your Membership will include the following items (shipped to you directly, but also available for pick-up from an Upper90 location at your convenience):
• Official Peña T-shirt (sizes S through 2XL):
• Membership Card (valid from Aug. 21, 2016 through Jun. 4, 2017).
• 10% discount at our headquarters Playwright when showing Membership Card, even outside Real Madrid events.
• Raffle entry for a chance to win a trip for 2 to see REAL MADRID (includes airfare, 3-night hotel stay, & tickets to a Real Madrid match TBD - courtesy of Mahou)
• Peña Madridista NYC decal sticker.
• MOST IMPORTANTLY, preferential access to our bar during premium games (i.e. Clásicos, Derbis, Finals) plus one guest. Our home bar will get completely full during these games, thus we will give preference to our official members.
• Exclusive discounts at Upper90 on Real Madrid gear and on Peña merchandise.
• The possibility to join organized Peña trips to see our team at the Bernabéu or during US summer tours. These events are not guaranteed to happen and will greatly depend on the availability of trusted organizers to take on these highly time-consuming tasks.
If you are listed as attending this event page, that is because you are an OPM for the[masked] season. This is not an “actual” event, it is a way for us to keep track of our official members and to communicate with them. Do not change your RSVP status once you are listed as a “Yes,” because you will no longer receive any communications from us if you do so.
HOW WE COMMUNICATE WITH OFFICIAL MEMBERS: We use the e-mailing tool in this attendance event page as the ONLY way to communicate with our official members in matters concerning their membership and other important announcements. If you do not want to miss out on any important announcement/events, please keep your Meetup e-mail up to date and check regularly. For example: often times, especially around US summer tours, we hear from Real Madrid within 12~48 hours of a certain event, and then we pass it on to our members marked as attending this event as soon as it becomes available to us.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask Elena Ponce, Cathy Lojo or Dani Cunza, or check the FAQ page (http://www.meetup.com/realmadridnyc/pages/1557853/Membership_FAQ/).
Disclaimer 1: We are a social group that bases our success in people being active within the club (i.e joining us for a fair number of meetings). We always welcome and try to integrate new members during their first visits. If you do not participate regularly in our meetings, all we can offer you for membership is a shirt and VIP access to big games in our bar in a great atmosphere.
Disclaimer 2: On the subject of organized trips and access to training sessions/private meetings and players signatures during the US summer tours. Those are VERY extraordinary events that are not likely to happen on a yearly basis. In most cases, space will be limited by Real Madrid (in the past to 20~30 people) and among the petitioners, preference will be given to official members that have actively participated in our events contributing to the success of our group. These events will be handled on a case-by-case basis and official membership only gives you the POSSIBILITY to participate in those events, given the limited numbers allowed by Real Madrid and the high number of petitioners we receive for these events. We will generally use a tiered lottery method (giving more weight to members that have attended a higher number of events) to decide which member-petitioners will attend these events. In recent times, a lot of new members have signed up to this group for the sole purpose of being closer to get players signatures or pictures with them. If you join this group because you want to meet other Madridistas in the NYC area, then WE are the group for you; but if you are joining this group because you want to meet the players, then probably we are not the group for you. You will have a statistically small chance of meeting them by joining this group with only that goal in mind.
Disclaimer 3: If you do not pick up your Membership materials by the end of the natural season (June 4, 2017), we and our partners will no longer hold them for you.
