I have spent a lot of time studying the Sport England website tonight. Very large amounts have been given to all sports but I'm not sure whether it's for both amateur and pro clubs. RL grants have been cut as follows The RFL has agreed to accept a reduction of £956,188 alongside a renegotiated participation goal, having recognised that it will not achieve the growth in regular and sustained participation commissioned through Sport England’s 2009 – 2013 investment because Sport England’s Active People Survey shows that the number of adults playing rugby league at least once a week has declined from 82,000 at the start of this funding period to 44,000 at the latest update. The RFL’s maximum funding award for 2009 – 2013 was £29,408,341. As a result of Sport England’s decision and the reductions to Sport England’s Exchequer funding in the Comprehensive Spending Review, the RFL’s award for the period now stands at £27,563,684
Full details of Clubs and amounts are given on the website and I notice that
Rugby union players will wave goodbye to the sub-standard floodlights at Carlisle Rugby Football Club in Cumbria. A National Lottery Olympic legacy award of £49,950 will allow the club to replace the existing floodlights which have been deemed to no longer be fit for purpose due to age related structural defects.
I'm sure that the BOD will have explored this airing but I thought it was worth putting it on here.
