Fans’ Views Sought for Future of Rugby League
August 25, 2022
The views of Cornwall RLFC supporters are being sought by the Rugby Football League’s recently appointed strategic partners IMG.
The survey, which has been named ‘reimagining rugby league’ carries a series of questions on the future of the greatest game and closes at the end of August.
A range of questions are asked which include participation of overseas clubs, attendance at matches and viewing habits via subscription television and online streaming.
Supporters are the lifeblood of rugby league, something that Cornwall can relate to first hand with the club averaging 1045 fans across 10 home games in the club’s maiden Betfred League 1 campaign.
The Choughs have also received global exposure as all but three games of the 2022 season have been broadcast by the RFL’s digital Our League platform.
But it’s not just fans who have been urged to participate as the consultation, which could see the biggest shake up for rugby league in the northern hemisphere since the sport moved from winter to summer in 1996, as the views of key game stakeholders, the media, players and coaches have also been sought.
The information gathered from the survey will be analysed along with other assessments carried out by IMG since they joined forces with the RFL earlier this year.
Once all the information has been processed, IMG will make a series of recommendations which will be presented to clubs towards the end of September once the domestic season has finished.
