Northern offering grassroots rugby league clubs chance to win prizes in £10,000 giveaway

Northern is offering rugby league clubs the chance to win training equipment, match kit and Betfred Super League tickets, as part of a £10,000 giveaway.

The train operator, which is an official partner of the league, launched the competition earlier this month after the 2024 season got underway.

Amateur clubs, including senior sides, community clubs, school teams and youth groups, are being invited to submit a 30-second video featuring a player or coach explaining why they love the game and footage of their best try or slickest training ground move.

The winner, selected by a panel of judges, will receive a full match kit for 30 players, training equipment and tickets to Super League games.

Five other clubs will be presented with training equipment, as well as tickets tickets for Magic Weekend, when an entire round of Super League fixtures will be played at Elland Road in Leeds in August, and the Grand Final at Old Trafford in Manchester in October.

The judges will also pick a special submission and present the club with 30 tickets to Magic Weekend and the Grand Final.

All entries must be submitted by Friday 5 April and the winners will then be announced on Friday 12 April.

Mark Powles, commercial and customer director at Northern, said: “We’re really proud to support rugby league clubs at the heart of communities across the North of England.

He added: “As an operator which serves more than 500 stations across the rugby league heartland, we’re always working with Betfred Super League to support the community clubs that matter to local people.”
