Rugby League’s grass roots is poised to benefit from a fund-raising boost worth tens of thousands of pounds to the community clubs who participate in the RFL’s generous cashback incentives in 2010.
This year saw over £40,000 returned to the clubs who took advantage of ticket offers for the Gillette Four Nations and engage Super League Grand Final and the community game is set to benefit still further in the New Year.
In 2010 community clubs who purchase tickets for the Carnegie Challenge Cup Final and engage Super League Grand Final can secure more valuable cashback which will enable them to reinvest in equipment, facilities and player development.
The RFL’s ticket initiative is being co-ordinated by the RFL’s Business Development Manager Ray Tennant, who is keen for more clubs to take advantage of the fantastic deals on offer.
“The cash back initiative is a great incentive for clubs. The extra money goes a long way in financing the clubs providing additional income for the grass roots of Rugby League,” said Tennant.
“The incentive is flexible to the clubs needs as it gives them the option of taking on what they feel comfortable with and more importantly what they can afford. Each package guarantees at least £500 for the community club, so it really is a no-brainer.
“The more people that take part, the more money the clubs receive and we urge clubs to get on board as the scheme is limited to places.”
Depending on the package clubs choose, they can receive from £500 up to £2,500.
For every 50 tickets sold priced at £41 for the Carnegie Challenge Cup Final, clubs will receive a return of £500.
For every 50 people who purchase a £41 ticket for the Carnegie Challenge Cup Final and a hotel clubs will receive a total of £2,000 money back.
For every 49 people that buy a £41 Carnegie Challenge Cup Final ticket with return coach travel and a night in a specified hotel, community clubs will receive a return totalling £2,000.
For every 50 people who purchase the package that includes tickets to the engage Super League Grand Final and the Carnegie Challenge Cup Final plus hotel accommodation will give clubs a return of £2,500.
Clubs wishing to take part in the cash back initiative should get in touch as soon as possible.
