OK, so it looks like we're not going to have a main competition sponsor this year and if we are, I think it will probably be on the cheap. From what I understand, that's not the biggest problem in the world as the other sponsors are seemingly bringing in a decent wedge.

So, why don't we try to partner with a nationally recognised charity and give them the title sponsorship? The knock on effect would be magnificent in terms of publicity and would potentially bring us to a new audience.

How about The Macmillan Super League or The Help for Heroes Super League? There are a lot of possibilities (although I think it would need to be a nationally recognised charity and not a local one or a RL specific one).

To all intents and purposes it would cost us very little and I think it would go some way to restoring the 'value' of the sponsorship brand ready for next year.

In the absence of a paying sponsor, this would be a brilliant idea. Macmillan would be good. Save the Children? Cancer Research UK might link in with Steve Prescott's work? Muscular Dystrophy would tie in with Joining Jack? Must be a major, national charity, though, to get the publicity instead of the money. (That sounds cynical but isn't meant to be)

And the deal will of course involve Super League and clubs giving generously to said charity.

A good idea but I'm not convinced we will go through the season without a sponsor. And even if we do, it is a sign we aren't quite bust yet.

RL sponsorship 5/6 years ago was running at around £ 2.9 Million in total and with the RFL seemingly re-branding the sport to C/D and E demographics this is hardly going to increase by much.

And of that £2.9m, how much was from Carnegie?

Championship will have a new sponsor today - a 'fizzy and fruity' product apparently
