Consumer champion Checkatrade to partner with one of sport’s most famous competitions

The RFL is proud to announce that consumer champion Checkatrade, the UK’s leading trade directory, is to become an official partner of its flagship competition, the Coral Challenge Cup.

Checkatrade connects consumers with recommended, vetted and monitored tradespeople via an interactive, online database containing the contact details of more than 34,000 businesses. Consumers can search free for tradespeople in their own locality, while trades undergo a vetting process before they can join and be promoted via the platform.

RFL Chief Commercial Officer, Mark Foster, says: “We are delighted to enter into partnership with such an increasingly popular and ambitious brand as Checkatrade.

“There is a strong synergy between the members and consumers of Checkatrade and Rugby League supporters, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial working relationship.”

Mike Fairman, Checkatrade CEO, confirmed: “We’re thrilled to partner with one of sports most famous competitions. The Coral Challenge Cup offers a national platform to support our ambitious growth plans and we look forward to bringing the historic excitement of the Challenge Cup and the Women’s Challenge Cup to our customers and tradespeople, particularly in the North.”

In addition, Checkatrade will become title partner of ‘Try of the Week’ – regularly the most popular piece of content on the RFL’s ‘Our League’ app. Try of the Week will become known as the Checkatrade Try of the Week.

About Checkatrade

Checkatrade, founded in 1998, has over 34,000 trade members and boasts over 4 million customer reviews allowing potential new customers to find the perfect tradesman for them, sure in the knowledge of their pristine track-record and ability.

Checkatrade helps combat the UK’s rogue trader problem by continuously vetting and monitoring local tradespeople such as builders, plumbers and electricians as well as service providers. The idea was born in 1998 after a tornado hit the small West Sussex town of Selsey. Traders poured in from across the country. Unfortunately, some ripped off the inhabitants of the town. Local businessman, Kevin Byrne, realised there was nowhere to check out the traders’ credentials and the company that became Checkatrade was formed.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
