​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.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
