Event Calendar



Voice of the Fans

Rugby League Cares and Supporters Direct would like to invite you to attend our Rugby League fans’ event next month at the brand new Heritage Quay – the new home for the RFL’s archives and heritage centre.


This is our “must attend” event for all Rugby League fans and clubs, not just for supporters’ trusts, but for anyone with an interest in the game.


There’ll be an up to the minute report on developments for next season from RFL General Manager Blake Solly, and all those present will have an opportunity to pitch ideas, suggestions and their views on the game directly to the Governing Body.


We’ve also got four workshops planned, including an introduction to Supporter Liaison Officers (SLOs) – a project we hope that the RFL will allow us to develop within the game, now that it is such a success within football in Europe. There will also be a ‘How to do a Heritage Project at your Club’ by the experts in their field. 


We close with an exclusive opportunity to get a true consultation directly with the RFL, chaired by Neil Hampshire, Chair of Hunslet Hawks, a club owned by its supporters.


The event is also nicely timed to follow the two Four Nations games that morning, and lunch will also be included.


To register for this event, please follow this link:  http://www.supporters-direct.org/news-article/make-your-voice-heard-at-rugby-league-fans-event
