​Wanted: Rugby League’s ‘Super fans’

2020 is a special year for Rugby League. The sport will be 125 years old and the Rugby Football League will mark the occasion with a year-long celebration involving the game’s most passionate supporters.

Full details of ‘125’ celebrations will be announced early in the New Year. Before then, the RFL is looking to recruit 125 ‘super fans’ to take part in an exciting range of activities throughout the year and help shape the evolution of the anniversary celebrations.

Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, says:

“125 years of Rugby League has given us a lot to celebrate and we know that there are legions of fans out there who will want to join in the celebrations. After all, it’s the fans who help make our sport such a wonderful spectacle.

“If you’re a ‘super fan’, we’d love to hear from you. Your passion for the game will help shape the content we produce throughout the year – you might even get a chance to feature in it yourself. Plus, each ‘super fan’ will receive two tickets for the Coral Challenge Cup Final in July.

“We are particularly keen to involve supporters from all versions of Rugby League, such as the physical and learning disability versions of the game – after all, inclusivity has been at the heart of Rugby League for 125 years and our campaign will have a strong focus on what Rugby League looks like in the modern era.”

Potential ‘super fans’ are asked to apply via the RFL website at https://rugby-league.com/125, where they will be asked what makes them – or somebody they know – a Rugby League ‘super fan’. Fans of all ages are welcome to apply.

‘Super fans’ are expected to be contactable by social media or email throughout 2020.

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.
