More light shed on tomorrow’s IMG meeting with Super League, Championship and League 1 clubs

Tomorrow is set to be a huge day in British Rugby League as IMG meet with Super League, Championship and League 1 clubs ahead of the new era they’re striving to usher into rugby league.

IMG agreed a 12-year deal with the sport back in April in order to be a strategic partner and have done plenty of research into what the sport needs to make that next step into stardom.

They have discussed plenty of different points of views with controversy sparking over supposed meetings which questioned the value of French clubs which prompted Catalans Dragons boss Steve McNamara to speak out on it after the Dragons beat Huddersfield earlier this season.

Meanwhile, plenty of discussion has centred around the previously suggested 10 team Super League which would work alongside a second tier also made up of 10 top teams.

Things could all boil down to tomorrow’s meeting when IMG meet with Super League, Championship and League 1 clubs.

This has been described as a massive vote for the game, but according to an RFL spokesperson “there isn’t a vote.” Instead, IMG are “presenting their recommendations” to the clubs meaning this journey could only be just beginning.

As for what would happen after this remains unclear but any changes to the structure would not come into effect immediately so time is on the side of this project.

In 2023, we will still see the same structure we have over the last three years so any changes would take effect in 2024.

Nonetheless, tomorrow is set to be a big day for the sport of rugby league as IMG present their recommendations to the Super League clubs about how best to take our great game forward.
