Toronto submit their final proposal to Super League

Toronto Wolfpack have submitted their final proposal to be readmitted into Super League next season.

The Canadian club withdrew from the 2020 competition due to ‘significant financial challenges’ following the departure of previous owner David Argyle.

A decision on their future was expected last month, however, prospective new owner Carlo Livolsi was given more time to show a clear direction for their future.

Super League chairman Robert Elstone gave Livolsi four weeks to provide greater clarity and an assessment of the value and viability of rugby league’s growth into the North American market.

The Wolfpack confirmed in a statement on Saturday that their final proposal had been submitted to the game’s governing bodies.

It reads: “Toronto Wolfpack can confirm that a final submission was made to the Super League and Rugby Football League (RFL) yesterday, October 23.

“An extensive business plan by the Wolf Grooming investment group addressed a number of matters which the Super League and member clubs had asked to be clarified 4-weeks ago.

“The Wolfpack are confident that the club will receive a fair hearing from the Super League Board, and the club is extremely grateful for the extra time they allowed for the submission.

“We feel the new submission demonstrates that under new ownership the Wolfpack can be a strong collaborative member of the Super League team, and add real value to the game as a whole.

“A final presentation from the Wolf Grooming investment group, and decision from the Super League and fellow clubs, is expected in the next few weeks.”
