Capita Announced as Additional Sponsor For The 2013 Capital Challenge

23rd November 2012

The club are delighted to announce an additional sponsor for the 9th annual Capital Challenge match between Skolars and London Broncos, to be played on 11 January 2013. Joining Exchange Traded Product (ETP) provider Boost ETP and NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes will be Capita, a leading provider of investment and banking services.

The Capital Challenge, sponsored by Boost ETP, Capita and NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes, will be held in the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC), in the heart of the City of London.

Commenting on the latest Capital Challenge sponsorship agreement London Skolars General Manager Howard Kramer said “having recently secured Boost ETP and NASDAQ OMX as Capital Challenge sponsors we are delighted to welcome a third prestigious name to the event. Capita, a leading provider of investment and financial solutions to individuals, financial institutions and corporates is a worthy sponsor of the Capital Challenge. Having secured rugby legend Jason Robinson OBE as guest speaker and with the added attraction of the Rugby League World Cup trophy on show it promises to be a fantastic event”

Mark Hodgson, Managing Director of Capita commented “Capita are delighted to be sponsoring such a superb event and would like to wish both teams good luck in the annual Capital Challenge on the 11thJanuary 2013”

Skolars continue to impress.

Although fair play, I s'pose Broncos had some small hand in this.

Any reason why these city companies can't sponsor The Broncos or Skolars on a more permanent basis??

If they're impressed and enthused by the occasion, that may well happen. Fingers crossed...

Perhaps they might like what they see and perhaps lead to something else? Companies like this have historically avoided RL like the plague, so its early days. But who knows?

The fact that this sort of company is getting involved at any level is a very promising change, so this can only* be seen as a positive. I remember reading (possibly in RLW) that the right-wing pressure group 'Aims for Industry' had leaned on some potential sponsors for the 2000 RWC and persuaded them to say no to sponsoring the tournament.

*unless you're a Rugby League fan, naturally. ;)

The old boys/business/RU connection is still alive and kicking then. Damn disgusting.It s one thing to choose not to sponsor RL, it s completely outside the pale to actively disuade others from doing so. The threat of lawsuits if we dare to use Rugby World Cup to describe out tournament is in similar vein.

A bunch of old-school management and Conservative party bigwigs, extremely pro-free enterprise and deregulation. They were founded around the time of WWII, but I don't know if they are still extant or, if so, influential.

The 'Aims for Industry' nonsense from Futtocks.

Hmmm someone mentions them and you appear denying they exist. Very sinister.

I know a conspiracy when I see it. You were probably behind 9/11 and the Moon landings too....

Indeed,I think I read something,somewhere,back in the year 2000,but I definately know who it was and I definately know who they are and they definately wanted to ruin the World Cup! Not a tad left leaning by any chance,perhaps a member of Rotherham Borough Council !

That's just what I read in (I'm pretty sure) RLW, and decided to post on here, as it had some relevance. Various members of AfI included Conservative party treasurer Sir Nigel Mobbs and Sir John Hall, who used to own Newcastle United FC.

This is a while back so I don't recall all the details, but the eventual sponsor, Lincoln Financial Group allegedly received suggestions that sponsoring Rugby League wasn't quite the thing.

Lincoln didn't pull out/disappear,they went bust!

Its coming back to me know,there was a world wide press conference called and when asked what their primary purpose in life was by John Humpheys,they definately said they wanted to stop the Rugby League World Cup,it was on BBC and the Financial Times and everywhere.

Curiouser and curiouser The 2000 Rugby League World Cup (known officially as the Lincoln 2000 World Cup due to sponsorship from Lincoln Financial Group...The millennium World Cup attracted a record sponsorship of over £1 million from Lincoln Financial Group, who had also sponsored Great Britain's Tests against New Zealand the previous autumn.

When you say 'went bust', you mean 'went bust' of course.
