non-existent it appears.
Early talk of Stobart's Super League have died a death. Stobart lorries driving up and down the country with the Super League Logo emblazoned on their carriers proved too big a gamble for the RFL.
So what are we left with?
Heinz Souper League or some mickey mouse company like Pro-Biz?
Even Nosey Parker seems to have no clues on the identity of the next sponsors.

Engage were announced 3 days before the start of the season last time.

I don't care how long it takes as long as we find someone good who's willing to pay the right money.

Who's up for RLFANS.COM Super League? :lol:

I agree its no time to panic, making an announcement like that a few days before Xmas (with the media and the peoples minds elsewhere) would be pointless.

as much as I obviously would like SL to get as much money as it can...we could do with a company that provides exposure. Having thousands of Eddie Stobart lorries going up and down the country all year with the SL logo on for example would be fantastic publicity for the game.

what they are missing out on though is getting league sponsors name on replica shirts and hence being more widely seen. last year all shirts had the league sponsors badge on arms. looks like this years we're back to only player shirts having the SL badge so the sponsors get less exposure and presumably have to pay less.

I imagine they'll put the sponsors names on when it's announced

How are they going to do that on all the replica kits already sold? :wink:

Of course they will add them to the players shirts. But they miss out on 100k+ people walking around with their name/logo on their sleeve.

It could be Carnegie or Valvoline if no one else stepped in, can't see it being a mickey mouse company.
It's been fun.

SOMEBODY SAID that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!

Carnegie will be pulling out of the Challenge Cup next year so I can't see them going for the Super League.

Don't see why everyones moaning about Heinz. They are a massive company, much bigger than engage ever would be. Still, I'd love to watch the Fly Emirates Super League or the Stobart Super League
