Salford have become the first Super League club to place the majority of their staff on furlough leave due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The coronavirus job retention scheme has been brought in by the government in order to allow employers to place their employees on a temporary leave of absence, with 80% or up to £2,500 of their wages covered by the government.
A club statement read: “This measure has been taken to ensure job security for all employees and protect the club’s future.
“Salford Red Devils will continue to keep supporters updated on the club’s activity throughout the suspended season across the website and social media channels.”
