Super League structure confirmed for 2022 with plans to change

Super League interim chairman Ken Davy has today confirmed that Super League clubs have agreed to remain at 12 teams for 2021.

That means that Leigh are relegated, having won just one of their 19 matches so far, but the Centurions will be eligible for a parachute payment following their drop.

“The principle of promotion and relegation hasn’t changed,” said Davy.

A potential restructure from 2023 is also in the pipeline, with two divisions of 10 teams likely to be the most desired outcome.

“I believe there does need to be significant change,” he said. “We’ve got a tremendous product and we need to widen the appeal of the sport.

“I produced a paper about six years ago that was based on promoting essentially three leagues of 10 and so one can see a lot of logic in two divisions of 10.

“In an ideal world, we want to have a structure that gives the ability for promotion and relegation to take place more easily with less draconian impact, particularly on the part of the relegated club.”

    Super League and the clubs truly lack intelligence! How could they accept a mediocre club in Leigh to be a part of the elite for a start?
    Do any of the club chairman have a set of balls?
    Totally pathetic and amateur fools!!

      They didn’t “accept” Leigh, they were the best placed championship club once Toronto dropped out. Promotion/Relegation is an important sporting principle, without which the Super League becomes an exhibition, not a compatition as it should be.
