Well, reading the new details, Top clubs in SL, will be category A, & will not be relegated ! NOT ALL clubs will be Category A rated, some clubs in the main SL 1. will be category B, & will face relegation, the other two divisions, & ie one division will be known as SL 2.
Both divisions will face promotion & relegation, !
The two French clubs will have separate charges to promote the game !
All category B clubs will be under revision for status etc.
Therefore, one can see, only 6 to 8 clubs will get category A status ! Wakey will not get category A ! We are weak in funding & full stadium facilities at best only half a ground by end of 2023 !
The overall outcome will be, the top clubs will get stronger, category B clubs will service them with talent & never grow, result boring finalists
And stagnation in future years. Talented players will only, only want category A status !
I suppose some will say these proposals are a game changer, yes but for the few !

This is all on the IMG thread.

The Independent reporting that Category "A " clubs will be guaranteed participation in top tier, whilst category "B'' clubs would be re-assessed on an annual basis,with highest ranking category "B" teams remaining in the top tier. They go on to say "In theory, clubs such as St.Helens and Leeds would be protected from relegation,and clubs such as Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils would be in danger of going down"
Looks like Trinity had better get there finger out.

Clearly all winners of the Grand Final should be Cat A. So that's St Helens, Wigan, Leeds and er Bradford Bulls. Only joking guys. Good luck with your classification. Wish we had someone that could run a club responsibly.

To try to reach Category A is to improve the look of the West stand which is quite an eyesore and marketing. We obviously fail on average attendance so hence the need to improve our poor marketing effort. We also need to improve the whole experience of attending the games. I can hear the moaning from here but our on field struggles will go against us because we are perceived to be a club that contributes little.
The plus side is that we support all types of teams, our finances one would hope would be a positive, our off field scholarship scheme and our history but I am not sure this counts.
We will know what we have to do to increase our chances and we must do it, some things will be hard like average attendances and our historic contribution but we are now reaching our 25th season.

They haven't even said what the criteria is. Although some of your points are probably right, they are not 'obvious' yet.
