Revealed: What percentage of the vote IMG need today

Super League's first year under IMG

Recently IMG made a series of amendments to their grading criteria.

This set the vote over whether or not they are introduced perfectly.

Thus, tomorrow, the 19th April, is a date that will determine the future of rugby league for the next 12 years and beyond after the RFL agreed a deal with IMG over a 12-year contract.

This vote will shape how Super League, the Championship and League One look.

Many have asked what percentage of the vote IMG need to see their proposals introduced into Super League.

Well, speaking after the amendments were made to the grading criteria which put a bigger focus on community and less on finances, RFL CEO Tony Sutton revealed they just need a basic majority of 51%.

“It’s an ordinary resolution which is a simple majority so when I was at school that’s better than 50% of the votes cast,” he said.

“Also that voting system, which is embedded in the articles of the RFL and how RFL meetings and resolutions are run, has been in place since 2006.

“None of us here have been around long enough to remember why that change was made so it’s not a recent change.

“It’s an ordinary resolution which means 51% technically is the majority required.”

The verdict should be delivered by 14:00 but could be as early as 11:30.
