Salford Red Devils have surpassed a total of £100,000 in their community share offer campaign, ‘Reds Rise Together’. The campaign will see the Red Devils become the Betfred Super League’s first wholly community-owned club.
Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils has said;
“It is a positive sign to be starting Week Two of the campaign with £100,000 already raised.”
“We are seeing support from all over. We have seen investment from our supporters, those that have not engaged with us in a while, members of our immediate community in and around Salford, as well as from the wider world.”
“What is so important here is that we regain the momentum that we saw earlier on in Week One and we push on towards our initial target sooner than later. The amount of positive work we can do within the club and community do if we reach towards our upper targets is exciting to say the least.”
“To those who have got involved already – thank you for supporting our club and for helping make history. To those who haven’t yet, we hope you join us. Let’s write another chapter here together.”
It is a huge financial boost for the Super League club as they move to becoming community owned which is exciting news for the club and the sport as a whole.
