Introducing the Thunder Bus

I have a confession to make. For me – it’s not all about winning. When I pick a team to throw my support behind, for me to remain a passionate and engaged fan, I need to be proud of the way my team operates not just on the field, but off the field. This is […]

Famous Sydney Thunder fans

When I became a Sydney Thunder member this year, I had no idea that I was joining such a group of famous fans.  Did you all know that some of the most recognisable people in the world are part of the #ThunderNation?  I’m actually feeling a little bit star struck.  This wasn’t mentioned in any tweets, any Facebook […]
