NRL launch new logo and confirm no new expansion

22 posts in this topic

The NRL have launched a new logo that will ve used all the way thru the game and confirmed no new expansion will be considered until after 2014.

Shame considering they have people lined up with millions to put in, wish we had that here - in fact maybe they could send some of the investors over! Like the idea of a logo used on all teams shirts, whether juniors, amateur or pro. We should do that here!

The game down under is in a really rich vein of health at the moment, certainly in terms of finance. Great to see. think the new branding looks smart, though prefer the old NRL logo as a stand alone brand, purely from an aesthetic point of view. Think the link of the branding between all levels of the game works well.

Maybe we shouds also adopt this, in Engand , Wales , etc colours, adopt the name NRL, look at a global ( well E,S,W,Irl, F, Aus, NZ, PNG etc) brand for the game. Nah, Unity? pah!

their are a number of slightly different logos for each aspect of the game. the logo for playing jerseys features the Premiership trophy incorporated into the design. the NZ'ers will be wearing that, as will all teams, but in a black and grey colourway, which can be seen here

Doesn't the RFL now do the same thing with logos?

Do the QRL have a new logo as well then if the NSWRL do?

Yep. Seen it on FB but someone more talented than me will have to post it on here.

With the game in rude health in Australia, now is the time to expand, especially if there are backers ready and able to jump in.

If they dilly about and miss the opportunity the ARL might beat then to some of the propspective expansion cities.

What is the reason given for the delay in expansion?

Garry Schofield had a word in their ears.

All looks very impressive. How long until we see NRL Europe?

As an aside, does anyone know whether Nigel Wood's size is due to a medical condition or has he just eaten far too many pies? Saw a picture of him at the World Cup launch the other day, and couldn't help thinking how ironic it is that we have such an un-athletic looking boss of what is arguably the most athletic contact sport around.

Apparently the head of Channel 9 said during the TV contract talks that he felt that more games would add nothing to the contract. You could argue, that as he wouldn't want to pay any more than he has done, he would say that.

Also, many of the NRL clubs are still pleading poverty. The Titans has well publicised problems this year, which isnt fully resolved, and the Tigers are apparently in some problems as well. The ARLC wants to 'shore up' the existing clubs first.

At least they've got a nice new logo... :rolleyes:

That seems reasonable. They've only postponed it 'till 2014 - not too far away.

A decision wouldnt come before 2014. Any new teams wouldn't enter until at least the next TV contract which would be in 2018.

Thank you for that information. I hope they don't miss out though. It's amazing how TV rules everything in the game, but that's the way it is these days.

It's not TV executives that made this decision, it's the clubs who want to hoard the money for themselves rather than invest in spreading the game with Perth and a second Brisbane team.

Self-interest rules, as soon as the clubs take control.

The RFL use a lot of logos based on the same design but that's different to having a plan where same used throughout the game. I wouldn't have a clue what our leagues logo was last year, but would be great if we all had it on the shirts!

My point exactly. They will consider new teams in 2014 I assume for inclusion in 2018. That is about the right timetable.

Gyngall's comments have been taken way out of context I think. He said that the morning after a sleepless 24hr negotiation session where the ARL basically held him over a barrel...

The ARL have made a massive commitment to restructure the game at all levels and they need to know the lay of the land before they doing something big like add new clubs. Two seasons will pass in the blink of an eye.
