Is a part-time top-flight on the agenda? – Super League chairman has his say

There has been much discussion in recent months about the future of rugby league in the UK.

With the COVID-19 pandemic tearing through British society as a whole, sport has found itself on the backburner with severe financial consequences.

That has prompted some questions about whether Super League can survive as a full-time entity. However, interim Super League chairman Ken Davy has dismissed that idea, pointing to the additional sources of income in 2022.

“We will have coverage at every match next year and we will be able to stream it to fans so that has the potential to be a significant additional source of income,” Davy said.

“We will be able to show our game much more widely, so I genuinely don’t believe that there is any danger of us going part-time.

“I am an optimist by nature but the strengths of the sport and its character is such then I am absolutely certain that it will emerge from the COVID difficulties stronger and more successful.”
