Seems that way as there appeared overwhelming support of 14 team league.

At least we don’t have to put up with 10 and seeing clubs face off 4/5 times a season.

The big issue here, apart from there not currently being 12 grade A clubs (which is interesting, as they havent fully defined the criteria), is what happent if/when they change any of the criteria (usually done to accommodate a newbie ?

Again, it will be interesting to see what happens with overseas clubs and their "academies"

Right now, us and Cas are under most threat with grounds, with Cas, Salford and KR and Warrington ? under pressure with academies.
Also, what happens when there are 6 /7 grade A clubs and then numbers are made up with grade B, which criteria will carry most weight ?


Seeing as its from 2024, we should be (hopefully) "OK" on that score.......

No mention of Sky funding (or any alternative). Without cash, this is just toilet roll.
I'd like a house with a swimming pool and snooker room but, without a lottery win, it ain't happening.

Probably no more French clubs

Participation of clubs outside of the UK to be capped and with additional standards to support domestic growth.

There's quite a bit more detail on twitter from journos at the press conference. But French clubs are very much on the agenda by the sounds (capped at 2 conveniently), although they will have to contribute to travel costs until they have a TV/sponsorship deal in place to cover the costs.

Anyway no change for 2023, P&R remains. From 2024 12 teams to start with a plan to expand to 14 by 2027, no loop fixtures, magic scrapped, challenge cup final back to May, London & France 'growth areas', push the international game, strong emphasis on a clubs digital content, marketing etc, financial investment into clubs the aim, review of salary cap including a minimum spend, improving matchday experience - making more 'an event'. Probably other stuff i missed.

Magic Weekend scrapped is farcical. It’s one of the events that make it stand out.

Have to say it was a cracking venture. I’d have scrapped the loop fixtures but had 1 extra magic fixture dependent on previous seasons finishings. 1v2, 3v4, 5v6 etc.

Also with no loop fixtures and 12 teams… that’s 22 fixtures a year. That’s some lost revenue of 1/2 gates. How will that shortfall be made up?

As for our ground. Without these 12 million developments we would be at serious risk. I’d say we are still at risk but less so. What we do need to do is ensure our youth/community especially remains excellent and keep further investing into that. We are already very good on those areas.

Only thing to hold us back is the stadium and marketing.

Well if Grade A clubs are at the bottom, it will be the next grade b club that's relegated?
