Clubs apply for Super League spot

Six Championship clubs have applied to be in Super League for the 2021 season.

Leigh, Toulouse, Featherstone, York, London and Bradford are all vying for Super League’s 12th spot, which was left vacant after Toronto Wolfpack failed in their bid to be re-admitted into the top flight for next season.

Leigh have submitted a 430-page bid document to the Rugby Football League headquarters at Red Hall in Leeds as well as the Super League Europe Limited offices in Manchester.

York, Featherstone and Bradford have confirmed on social media of their final submissions of their formal applications.

London Broncos issued a statement to their supporters on Sunday outlining their Super League ambitions while Toulouse have been vocal on social media of their bid by regularly posting videos from people supporting their bid.

  1. Absolute joke system.
    They should apply the rules they wanted to apply to Toronto to all these clubs as well as those currently left in SL.
    Somehow I reckon many will be found wanting.

  2. Promote three teams therefore 14teams. No relegation for two years then one up one down the teams are Leigh .London .Tolouse

  3. What rules you talkin about….? Toronto broke operational rules, if any other super league team would be relegated to league 1

    LEIGH OR TOULOUSE SHOULD GET THE 12th SPOT FOR 2021, KNOWING THE RFL/SUPER LEAGUE INCOMETENCE THEY GO BRATFORD

  4. I fell this would be a good opportunity to split the league in to 2 divisions of 18 teams. This would involve only playing each team twice but ensures an even number of home and away games per team.
