Toronto will not take central distribution if they gain promotion to Super League

Super League chief executive Robert Elstone says Toronto would not take any central funding if they gain promotion to the top-flight.

The Wolfpack have self-funded the first three years of their existence but have covered the travelling costs of visiting teams to Canada.

Elstone has confirmed Toronto would continue to pay for expenses if they gain promotion to Super League this season – but they must also meet Super League criteria.

He said: “If Toronto win the right to be promoted, then they have to meet minimum standards.

“We are talking to the RFL about what they look like. We are seeking a number of assurances from the RFL and, if we get those and Toronto win that game, they are in.

“If they are in, they won’t be taking a central distribution. The Super League pot will be shared among 11 clubs.”

Elstone has also confirmed that loop fixtures will continue in 2020.
