In 2009, we began our work in Rugby League following agreement of a funding programme from the Rugby Football League, the game's governing body in the UK.
With our mission statement as a guiding principle, we have helped establish almost 20 Supporters’ Trusts in Rugby League, six of whom now majority control or own their clubs.
The members and biographies of the SD Rugby League Council can be found here.
We also have a case study about our work to save and reform Rochdale Hornets. Through the efforts of Supporters Direct Rugby League Hornets and under a supporter owned model, they won silverware for the first time in 91 years at the end of the 2013 season gaining promotion to the Kingstone Press Championship and consolidating their place in the 2014 season.
