Featherstone plays host to RFL

Featherstone Rovers played host to the latest Championship meeting at the Big Fellas Stadium. The RFL represented by Nigel Wood, Ralph Rimmer and Blake Solly presented information to all Championship clubs outlining the new structures to be in place in 2015.
Featherstone Rovers Chief Executive Craig Poskitt said: "As a club we fully support the new structures put in place and congratulate the RFL Executive on securing a record, long term TV deal with Sky that will bring stability to the sport. All at Featherstone are excited by recent developments and incentivised by the new structures being put in place. We are under no illusions that there is a lot of hard work ahead to get where we want to be.
"I know as a club we can see the bigger picture and are particularly excited about the commercial opportunities that promotion and relegation can represent."
On hosting the meeting Craig added: "We have excellent facilities at the Big Fellas Stadium and it is an asset that currently is underutilised. It was a good learning experience too for our Commercial Manager Paul Taylor who observed the meeting. It also provided us with an opportunity to showcase the redevelopment of the Railway End of the stadium and our new Centre of Excellence."
Chief Executive of the RFL Nigel Wood said: "We would like to thank Featherstone Rovers for their warm hospitality. It was particularly interesting to see the ground redevelopments taking place which is a unique and inspiring project. I was also impressed with the new Centre of Excellence and was given an informative tour by Chairman Mark Campbell. It is good to see a forward thinking club plan for the future in a sustainable fashion."
As a company, whose global head office is in Featherstone, LINPAC is committed to supporting many initiatives in and around the town.
The LINPAC name first appeared on the Featherstone Rovers shirt in 1981/1982 in the first ever shirt sponsorship deal in Rugby League and we were the main sponsor of the club until 1989.
We returned as a commercial partner in 2013 and appeared on the shorts but in a return to the iconic playing kits of the 1980’s the LINPAC logo will again adorn the front of the Rovers shirt.
Both Rovers and LINPAC share a passionate commitment to the success and development of the local area and we are deeply involved in the team’s charitable foundation – we’re all looking forward to the 2014 season with great anticipation.
