Betfred extends commitment to Championship and League 1 Rugby League

Betfred is to extend its sponsorship of Rugby League’s Championship and League 1 competitions by a further two years – and more than double its annual financial contribution to the game outside Super League.

The announcement means that the leading UK bookmaker will sponsor all three professional tiers of the sport, including the Betfred Super League, until the end of the 2021 season.

Rugby Football League Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer, said:

“Betfred have been supporting our Championship and League 1 competitions since 2018 and I am delighted that they will continue that support for a further two years. Their energy and enthusiasm off the field mirrors the product on the field, where clubs and players are beginning to gear up for what will be a thrilling play-off series in two vibrant competitions.”

Betfred boss Fred Done added:

“We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with Rugby League and its supporters and therefore I am delighted that we are now able to further extend our sponsorship of the Championship and League 1 in line with our recent Super League and Women’s Super League agreements. Sport provides tremendous content for our digital platforms and we are delighted that through deals like these we are able to be a part of it.”

The Betfred Championship play-offs get underway on the weekend of Saturday 14/Sunday 15 September when the teams finishing in second, third, fourth and fifth places will all be in action. Toronto Wolfpack have already been crowned ‘League Leaders’ and are therefore entitled to a bye on the first weekend of the play-offs before entertaining the winner of second versus third on Sunday 22 September (6.30pm GMT).

All Betfred Championship play-off games will be played at the home ground of the team ranked highest in the league at the end of the regular season. Sky Sports will show play-off action on their various channels, as well as round-the-clock updates via the Sky Sports app and Sky Sports News.

Week 1

Saturday 14 September, 3pm: Qualifying Final (2nd v 3rd) or Elimination Final (4th v 5th)
Sunday 15 September, 6.30pm: Qualifying Final (2nd v 3rd) or Elimination Final (4th v 5th)

Week 2

Week 4

Saturday 5 October (KO 7.30pm): Betfred Championship Grand Final

Automatic promotion beckons for the winners of Betfred League 1, while the teams finishing in the five places immediately behind them will take part in a play-off series to determine who else is promoted to the Championship.

The Betfred League 1 play-offs will also begin on the weekend of Saturday 14/Sunday 15 September, with the final taking place on Sunday 6 October. Betfred League 1 play-offs will be broadcast both on Our League and the Betfred Facebook Page.

Full play-off structures are available on the RFL website.

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.
