Last Few Places Available for RL Conference
A small number of places are still available for Supporters Directs first ever rugby league conference, to be held at The George Hotel Huddersfield on Saturday October 9th.
The conference, which brings together supporters, players and journalists from across rugby league, aims to show the positive differences that can be made to the game through greater supporter involvement and representation.
Laura Harrison, Rugby League Development Officer for Supporters Direct said of the conference: “What we’re trying to do is show people that there is an alternative to the boom and bust model we see so much of these days. We want clubs to see that by working with supporters rather than keeping them at a distance, huge developments can be made both on and off the field and clubs can become more sustainable and community focussed and we want supporters to see that only by beginning to question how clubs are being run can we actually begin to put an end to it.”
Following on from the recent announcement that Robbie Paul will be attending the conference, Supporters Direct are pleased to announce that further presentations will come from Neil Kelly, Foundation Director at Warrington Wolves and Chris Thair from the RFL plus a number of current supporters trusts including Hornets Rugby League, Trust in Widnes and Swansea City FC.
Anyone wishing to attend the conference is urged to register as soon as possible via the Supporters Direct website at www.supporters-direct.org. Alternatively you can contact Laura Harrison on Laura.Harrison@supporters-direct.org
