Programme Watch: Which clubs are issuing them in 2020?

Recommended Posts

A link to a digital version of the Oldham St Annes programme for this afternoon's (14/3) National Conference League Third Division clash with Heworth. The content (the sponsorship packages section) includes an indication it is available also in printed form.

Another update...


In print: Hull (£3, 48pp), Leeds (£3, 80pp), Warrington (£3, 48pp), Wigan (£3.50)


Quick update - the Leeds programme was 80 pages for the opening double header but has reverted to 64 pages for the subsequent games.

Interestingly at the Warrington game, adjacent to the programme stand at the Kirkstall Lane entrance were boxes of surplus programmes for both the double header and Hull KR games marked 'FREE' - they were just giving them away rather than pulping or trying to sell them. I picked up a new copy of the double header one as I'd managed to somewhat mangle my original copy.

Dewsbury Celtic (versus Bradford Dudley Hill, National Conference League, Division Two, 14/3/20)

£2, 16pp (incorrectly dated March 7)

Every copy sold. Are you watching Dewsbury Rams?

Unfortunately, this was the worst game of rugby league I've seen in a long, long time...

Perhaps it needs some supporters to produce unofficial programmes or fanzines to embarrass clubs into producing them.

I gather a monthly fanzine (£2), produced by Widnes supporters (Widnes Independent Supporters Society Ltd), was on sale at yesterday's (15/3) Challenge Cup fifth round tie between Widnes and Swinton. Sounds like a relaunch after well received issues were put together sporadically in 2019.

Here's what I understand the position to be in relation to post-lockdown programmes:

  • printed programmes (available on subscription for rest of season, unsure how to secure individual editions): Leeds & Warrington
  • e-programmes for individual games: Saints & Hull KR
  • monthly magazine: Wakefield
  • monthly e-magazine: Cas
  • nothing: Catalans (I think), Wigan, Huddersfield, Hull, Salford
