Warrington Wolves double down on CEO’s community commitments as they help weather-stricken Wire fans

Rugby league is a sport that transcends far beyond the pitch on a game day and one of the things the sport prides itself upon is the sense of community, something that members of Warrington Wolves have been highlighting this week.

In a fan forum earlier this off-season Chief Executive Karl Fitzpatrick talked about what was important for the club for the 2023 campaign in order to reverse their poor form and put together a successful season.

“One thing we want to do this upcoming season is to reconnect with the community,” Fitzpatrick told fans at a Wire hosted event/live podcast. “Not just what happened last year but we want to get the community to fall in love with the club and the players again.

“The players will be going out in the community every single week, it’s not an addition to their training schedule, it is part of the training schedule. It’s really important that we’re out in the community with you guys.”

The Wolves have already made good on that promise as they’ve been seen this week helping to deliver food donations with new signing Josh McGuire and testimonial man Ben Currie leading the way.

Community work like this has been made part of the training programme according to Fitzpatrick but during such a cold snap the time and energy spared by Wire players will go a long way.

It hasn’t just been the first team players that have been doing their part for the community with the younger Wolves climbing the height of Ben Nevis over the weekend to raise money to fight Rett Syndrome, as reported here.

Both acts just go to show the power of Super League clubs and their importance to the communities that they represent.
