EV­ERY home game week­end North Queens­land Cow­boys di­a­mond mem­ber David Catan­zaro bun­dles the fam­ily in the car and heads up the high­way from the Bur­dekin.

Since join­ing as a mem­ber in 2013 he hasn’t missed a game and loves noth­ing more than pulling on the blue and yel­low jer­sey and cheer­ing his team on from the stands.

Mr Catan­zaro said he had been a Cow­boys fan since 2005 but didn’t join un­til 2013 and he has been en­joy­ing the perks of be­ing a mem­ber.

“It ( mem­ber­ship) gets you one of the best seats in the house and it gets you into all the func­tions and you’re pretty much top of the list for any pro­mo­tions they do,” he said.

“I like the Cow­boys be­cause I’m from the Bur­dekin so they are a close team to fol­low, they are ac­ces­si­ble com­pared to a team from down south and it’s eas­ier to get to all the games.

“I don’t think we’ve missed a game. It’s a big com­mit­ment but we love it.

“When they are play­ing well the sta­dium re­ally rocks and ev­ery­one re­ally gets be­hind the boys.”

Mr Catan­zaro re­cently got to per­form the guard of hon­our with his 11- year- old son Ri­ley and he has shared his game day ex­pe­ri­ence with the Townsville Bul­letin. To watch the video visit our web­site townsville­bul­letin. com. au.
