Charlotte welcomes Rugby League funding

 

Charlotte welcomed the Government's announcement of £12 million of new loans for Rugby League clubs.

Charlotte said:

"This will be a relief to clubs like Warrington Wolves, who are looking to survive in the most difficult of financial circumstances.

I have been constantly in the ear of the sports minister about this and I am pleased that he has listened. While we do not know what next year has in store, fans will be reassured that these centrepieces of our communities must not be allowed to fold.

If there is need for more money in 2021, not least to support the World Cup, I will be making the case to ministers again. After all, they have found £135 million for Rugby Union!"
