Central American RL social media

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to help push Central American rugby league's social media accounts. Obviously it helps the cause of each nation to have a greater reach and to attract sponsors. We're also using it as a measuring stick against the social media of Central American Union.

 

Central America has a very real possibility of TGG being the major code of rugby in a short space of time with a little nurturing.

 

We have just started a Youtube Channel for "How to" videos in Spanish so new players can get into the game.

Facebook Pages:

Guatemala Facebook Page

El Salvador Facebook Page

Honduras Facebook Page

Nicaragua Facebook Page

Costa Rica Facebook Page

Panama Facebook Page

 

Instagram Accounts:

El Salvador Instagram

Honduras Instagram

Nicaragua Instagram

Twitter Accounts:
El Salvador Twitter

Honduras Twitter

Nicaragua Twitter

Costa Rica Twitter

 

As you can see, not all Seven Central American countries have all 3 of the top social media platforms running at the moment but we are working on it.

I can tell you that out of the possible 21 accounts (7 nations X 3 accounts), the rugby league account has a better following on Seven. Only 14 to go! The total follower count is 26,347 to RU and 10,002 to RL at last count. The growth of the RL accounts has been double that of the RU accounts since I've rolled up my sleeves though.

 

Let's do it!

Thanks for sharing this Pulga. 
 

Just being nosey here, what is your involvement in this and what are playing numbers like in those countries? Do you really think RL can get established in Central America? Good luck with it anyway!

Not nosey at all mate. I could talk about it for hours.

I am the founder of the El Salvador and Nicaragua RL so far. There have been some interesting contacts on the ground very recently in Honduras and Costa Rica too. 

There are a small number of players in El Salvador which has been halted because of COVID-19. 

Nicaragua is a bit more active. They completed their first domestic competition last year with 4 teams in 3 cities. 

I believe Honduras could come to the dark side in a big way and match Nicaragua but time will tell. 

I really do think RL could get established in Central America. It is a fairly unique set of countries that have some huge benefits and also some challenges.

Sounds exciting! Do you live in Central America then? 
 

Also have you got any juniors or women playing as well as the men’s teams?

No. I was planning on going over for an extended stay in January but COVID-19 has ruined that.

I married into a Salvadoran family and my brother-in-law played his whole life which sparked the idea.

We have plans for both juniors and women's in Nicaragua but nothing just yet. Hopefully something this year virus willing.
