In 2009, we began our work in Rugby League following agreement of a funding programme from the Rugby Football League, the game\\\'s governing body in the UK.
With our mission statement as a guiding principle, we have helped establish almost 20 Supporters’ Trusts in Rugby League, six of whom now majority control or own their clubs.
SD Rugby League Council
Our Rugby League Council is elected by our member Supporters Trusts and Community-Owned Clubs to represent SD and its members.
SD Rugby League Fans Parliament
SD meet with the RFL quarterly to discuss matters raised by our member Supporters Trusts, Supporter-Owned clubs and members of the SD Rugby League Fans Parliament which a representative from each RL club supporter base will be invited to join.
Members of the SD Rugby League Fans Parliament will communicate digitally via a dedicated private network group, receive Rugby League targeted newsletters, notice of upcoming SD Rugby League events and be invited to contribute agenda items to be raised at the next quarterly meeting with the RFL including in-depth reporting and responses following each meeting.
We are working hard on bringing supporters closer to those making the decisions in the game and facilitating fan input.
