Super League hoping to resume with fans ASAP

Super League have released a statement saying they looking at ways to resume the season, and fans are very much at the forefront of discussions.

The sport has been suspended in this country since March, and there have been several rumours about how it is going to restart.

In the statement, they say all 12 clubs have met to discuss the implications of playing matches behind closed doors, and a possible plan for when crowds can return.

Discussions have also taken place over a safe return to training. They also accept the season will be extended with fixtures likely to be rearranged until later this year as part of an extended season.

Super League Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “Clearly, this is an important first step in getting us back playing again – but this is also the first step in a complex process that will require more of the Game-wide collaboration evident to date, as we look to find solutions, and deal with uncertainties.

“We share with our fans, players, broadcast and commercial partners the desire to get back on the field as soon as possible, in line with government advice on protecting everyone involved with our sport and the wider community we serve.

“Potential season start dates are all being considered as part of the extensive work going into fixtures scheduling and, whilst health remains paramount, we are committed to exploring all opportunities to deliver live rugby league in front of crowds.”
