Betfred Championship and League One restructure, 2024-26
Ahead of the start of the Betfred Championship season in Sheffield and Wakefield this Friday night, the Championship and League One clubs have had confirmation of a managed transition of the competition structure below Super League over the next two seasons, to produce two divisions of 12 clubs from 2026.

Following a detailed six-month review involving all Tier Two and Three clubs alongside the RFL executive, the Betfred Championship will become a 13-team division for one season only in 2025, with League One expanding to become at least 10 teams - and applications to be invited for an 11th (for full details, see the summary below).

....and to think our club voted for this nonsense. :CRAZY:
Abysmal decision to reduce the Championship from 14 to 12. Makes no sense to weaken the stronger division of the two. Imagine suggesting dropping numbers in SL and the reason been to even up numbers in the Championship.

Aye, two games less a season! How are clubs going to survive? Perhaps, and i'm being serious here, the RFL/IMG/SL don't want any leagues below SL to survive. If that's not the case they are making a pretty good job of doing just that!
Didn’t IMG say that SL could end up with 14 teams. That’s not going to happen with this system. Where will they get the other 2 teams from? France or Canada probably.
