The Rugby League Challenge Cup is set to kick off in 2019 without a sponsor. Bookmakers Ladbrokes declined to extend their four-year deal after it ended with Catalans Dragons’ historic victory over Warrington at Wembley last August.The Rugby Football League had lined up a replacement but it is thought a deal collapsed at the last minute and it has now begun the search for a new backer.

We need to forgo the sponsorship money and instead enter into an innovative partnership that markets the game far and wide. Couldn't we use the side of lorries or something?

Given this is an RFL comp not SL, not sure what Elstone would have to do with it.

We have Brian Barwick for all this kind of stuff, we were told that this was part of his expertise.

I've just popped an email off to the RFL offering to forgo my sponsorship of the Petone Panthers kids for 2019 and instead cover the Challenge Cup.....or should I say the G/Fax Challenge Cup as it'll be now know :wink:

In all seriousness, sports sponsorship has been a tough market for a few years now......didn't the 2nd and lower tiers of soccer struggle a while back? I'd be happy to give the naming rights to a FTA broadcaster in return for coverage...the C4 Challenge Cup or ITV Challenge Cup would be great......but it would need to be a FTA channel and 4 ties per round covered....kind of like the stobbart deal but with actual reach :lol:
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I never quite know when you are being serious but, this is a decent idea and our sport is crying out for some decent exposure.
We could always try to entice Buzz Bingo and with each player having a different number on their shirts, viewers could co for 4 corners or a line, maybe even a full house if there are some high scoring games. :D
