New sponsor for World Club Challenge


The RFL have unveiled wealth management company PROBIZ as the new title sponsor for the 2011 World Club Challenge between Wigan and NRL champions St George.

The PROBIZ World Club Challenge will take place at the DW Stadium on Sunday February 27th to crown the best club side in the world.

RFL Commercial Director Paul Kimberley said: “We are delighted that PROBIZ will be sponsoring the 2011 World Club Challenge and look forward to working with them on this event, which has become one of the highlights on the Rugby League calendar.

“The last few seasons have thrown up some extraordinarily entertaining contests and we fully expect this year’s clash to be just as exciting with two great champion teams going head to head.”

The game will be shown live on SKY Sports and will be broadcast around the world on Channel Nine in Australia and across the Middle East region on Showtime.

PROBIZ founder, Feisal Nahaboo, added: “This will be a significant opportunity for PROBIZ to be part of one of the most entertaining sports on the planet. Rugby League will be key in developing our brand identity across UK and Global markets. I am honoured and proud to be sponsoring the biggest club match in world Rugby League.

“The PROBIZ World Club Challenge will be a wonderful spectacle and a tough encounter between two world-class sides. I’m sure this will be a great advertisement for the sport. It’s a privilege to be part of the planning and lead-up to the match. I cannot wait to be involved.”

The World Club Challenge, won last year by Melbourne Storm, is set to be a sell out, with the RFL revealing that tickets are selling fast for the popular event.

Tickets for the PROBIZ World Club Challenge costs from £20 adults and £10 concessions and are available from or by contacting the RFL Ticket Office on 0844 856 1113.
