Nottingham look for funding to celebrate 30 years of rugby league in the city

Nottingham Outlaws are looking to celebrate 30 years of rugby league in the city by finding a permanent home.

The East Midland’s oldest club has launched Project 30, a crowdfunding project aimed at raising the finance and support required to build a much needed clubhouse.

The club currently play their home games in the city at Bilborough’s Harvey Hadden Stadium.

Club chairman Joe Shepherd said: “Project 30 is a vital part of Rugby Leagues future in the City. We’ve already received some donations plus support from city councillors – which is a fantastic start.

“Whilst Harvey Hadden is our preferred option, we are currently in discussions with Nottingham City Council and other stakeholders to identify a suitable site for our permanent home. Above all we want to build a real community club that Nottingham can be proud of.”

The sport has had a nomadic presence in both amateur and professional leagues since the 1980s. Nottingham City, previously known as Mansfield Marksmen, were in the Second Division as recently as 1993, before being relegated to the National Conference League.

You can donate to Project 30 through the clubs website and the Nottingham Outlaws are asking for any sized donation that can help them build the community clubhouse.
