Salary cap to remain the same

The Super League salary cap will remain at £2.1 million for the foreseeable future after clubs voted unanimously at a General Meeting this afternoon.

There had been ongoing discussions in recent weeks as to whether or not to reduce the cap by £300,000, in the aim of reducing financial pressure in light of the Covid-19 suspension.

That proposition has now, however, been unanimously rejected by clubs after input from the RLPA.

Super League executive chairman Robert Elstone said: “The unanimous vote is another example of the unity shown by our clubs in response to the significant challenges posed by Covid-19.

“Whilst we will continue to apply the existing levels of scrutiny to all costs, today’s decision underlines our commitment to ensuring Super League remains strong and competitive, and also shows confidence in our ability to manage the competition through these uncertain times.”
